IIRC, hard to project stuff on the walls back in the early '60s
In the 1960s my mother painted trompe l'oeil on the living room wall. IIRC a branch of a Birch tree.

standard cookie cutter house with end gable roof had many standard sizes and if built properly, not much waste materials as the falls were used somewhere else
In the 1980s they built a 3v geodesic dome that was 39ft in diameter. That's the optimal size for 4x8 sheets. When they sheet-rocked the interior, the scraps fit in a five gallon bucket.
