STEP 3: Draw Floor Plan on Base You might want to start with the front door TIP: Use a pencil and ruler!
Use Architectural Symbols

STEP 4: NEATLY Label and Measure each Room If a room is 6 x 8 actual size, put 12 x 16 beneath the room name. Dont forget hallways! They should be at last 3 (1-1/2) wide
STEP 5: Walls & Windows Cut 4 strips of additional thick paper. Cut each wall to the correct length for each room, hallway, etc. Carefully cut windows and doors out of each wall where they need to be. Only cut three sides for each door to create a hinge! Use an Xacto knife and metal ruler. BE CAREFUL! Hot glue or tape each wall in place. Glue walls together for stability.
STEP 6: External Walls Cut two 4 tall walls for the front and back of the house. Cut two 8 tall walls for the two shorter walls. – These shorter walls will have gables (triangular shaped peaks).
STEP 7: Add a Roof Cut a thick piece of paper about ¼ wider and longer than the house. Fold it in half length-wise. Set it in place.
STEP 8: Glue house to a green piece of construction paper that is 2 larger than the house on all sides.
