Draw to scale an accurate "blueprint" of your eatery. Be sure
to keep the following guidelines in mind:

= 1'. Whichever scale you use, please mark it clearly on every page of your "blueprint."
2. Your "blueprint" should include the perimeters (in feet),
areas (in square feet), and the volume (total cubic feet) of every major room/section of your restaurant.
3. All blueprints should be able to fit in the middle section
of a three-section backboard.
