Well, when you say:

How big do you want to make the drawing?

Suppose you wanted to make it no more than 8 inches by 8 inches. If you used a scale of inch on the drawing equal to 2 feet in the real room. If your room is 10 feet by 12 feet, your drawing would be 5 inches by 6 inches.

I did this yesterday and it took forever even with my tutor guiding me and then today I lost the scale page. Now I have to do it all over again. Oops! Good luck.
