first you need to make a scale IE: 1/2” = 1 FOOT SO 6 blocks would be equal to 6FOOT :<))


Exactly what Tony says, except that it’s possible that they use a scale such as 1:8, 1:24, 1:32 or worse metric. So one square may not give such a nice conversion. However, it is always the same technique of multiplying the measurement on the drawing by the second number after the colon – e.g. on a 1:24 scale if you have 1/2” you multiply that by 24 to get 12” or 1’.
