You will have all of the following completed: <ul><li>A one page essay on how your culture effects your house. </li></ul><ul><li>A front color view. </li></ul><ul><li>A floor plan of each floor including room measurement and total square footage of each floor and total house, and the scale you chose. </li></ul><ul><li>A 3-D model of the first floor. </li></ul><ul><li>Present all in class. </li></ul>
