### How dense?

"The Dutch ideal": 100 dwelling units / 1 hectare.

1 hectare = 107,639 sq. ft.

This is the area of a square 328 x 328 ft

On average (U.S.), one dwelling unit is 1300 sq. ft. - a rectangle 56 x 24 ft.

The cross-section of a 2x4 (w/ actual dimensions 1.5x3.5 in) equals exactly! 1300 sq. ft. at **1/16"=1'0"**

Total DALLAS_DENSITY site is 5000x2700 feet. (emailed Google Earth placemarks)

For Mebane: at 1/16"=1'-0", the dallas_density site is a rectangle with (actual) dimensions **26'-6" x 14'-9"**

Within it, a hectare at 1/16"=1'-0" is a square with (actual) dimensions **1'8-1/2" x 1'8-1/2"**
