That doesn't sound crazy to me but maybe I'm weird!
When I was young we moved three times and my Mother always made our
rooms on a board and we would to scale make our furniture using
templates my father had. Then we'd have the job of choosing where
everything went before we moved. I still do this when I move and
also before changing rooms around- especially the kids. My Mom is
very small and she use to move around and lift things unbelievably
for her size. About 5 foot and 85-90 pounds. I'm glad she encouraged
me to do this- for I've used this at home and school.
