One should work their way around the room and get into a measuring rhythm. Beginning at one corner, measure from one corner to inside the door or window frame. Then measure the door or window width. Now measure from the other side of the door or window along the wall to the next door or window. Measure the width of the door or window. Continue measuring until the measurements on each or the room's wall have been completely transcribed to the rough drawing. Measure column widths and where they are exactly placed in the room by measuring from perpendicular walls to the column.
Draw a scaled plan using a pencil and graph paper. Now that the measurements have been taken it is time to get to work to create a scaled plan of the room. Drawing a room to scale on plan is simple once one understands that one quarter inch square on the graph paper equals one foot, and that inches can be estimated with half a square equaling 6_inches and a fourth of a square equating to 3_inches. Using the length and width measurements draw the basic room perimeter to scale onto the graph paper with a pencil. Draw in the doors, windows, etc. to scale on the graph paper in the same way you measured them in the room.
