Designing an amazing office is one thing, but actually doing it within the laws of physics is a whole other ball game.

Actually, it's kind of gross…maybe she should get that checked out…
Anyway, Olive has to do something fast, or her final floor plan is gonna get wet.
So very reluctantly…
She gets out her phone and calls her old friend, the architect.
When he arrives, he takes one look at Olive’s floor plan, whips out his red pen, and asks [Architect sits down at the table]
Olive what she’s willing to cut.
Olive cries and says…nothing!
But the architect tells her that it’s the only way if she wants to put stuff in there
from the other two.
The architect starts drawing X’s right on the floor plan.
Each one is like a knife slashing Olive’s soul.
He adds that they'll redraw everything once it's mapped out.
Next, the architect forces Olive to look at her other two floor plans and identify the
things she wants to incorporate into the final plan. [Olive looking at the plans]
Each thing Olive wants to incorporate the architect tries to squeeze into one of the
x-ed out spaces.
Sometimes it fits fine.
Other times, not so much.
And Olive just has to deal with it.
There are also times where the architect can adjust some other room measurements to make
room for the new stuff.
The biggest changes are when the architect has to shift stuff around or slide stuff over
to make room for new stuff.
When that happens, the architect draws arrows to show the movement. [Architect making alterations to the plan]
The architect is also careful to cross out any measurements that are being altered.
He also rewrites the new measurements above the crossed out ones…
Before finishing, the architect suggests they add up the lengths and widths of the room.
They have to be sure everything totals to match the length and width of the office space,
which is 35 by 30 feet.
He tells Olive that if it doesn’t fit, they have to go back to the drawing board. [Architect smiling next to a board]
Olive tells him she’d rather scrap the whole thing, than start all over again. [Olive jumps out the window]
Who needs a tax office?
Maybe she’d be happier selling lemonade. [Olive at a lemonade stand with her thumbs up]
