    In this task you are going to practice being very careful.

    Here are the rules:

    • Your house is 50 feet by 50 feet
    • 5 rooms, each with a door
    • Walls are 9' tall
    • The floor is 1' thick
    • All walls are 1' thick
    • At least one window in each room.
    • Windows can be any size.

    In this case, the rectangle will be 34 inches wide and 8 feet tall. You need the comma between the lengths. One setting that will help you is found under Window:

    These setting seem to help with getting the dimensions exact:

    Once you've set these, they stay with that model.
