One of the things that they're very likely to ask you in some way, is to have a floor plan, and that big floor plan has a section going through it, and there's going to be some ductwork making its way around, doing whatever it's going to do, and the part where you happen to cross it in the section, let's say that piece of duct work is 18 by 18, and so you're going to say, oh I have to make sure that I can fit an 18 by 18 in here. But what if turns out that this portion right here is actually 24 by 24, or 24 by 36, something like that. So it's bigger than the portion that happens to be in our section cut.
