/* The Ark */
=== Interior design and dimensions ===
There were three stories which were divided into multiple rooms. There is only a single window and door recorded for the whole ark, but possibly because these were the most important ones. The dimensions were three hundred [[cubit]]s long by fifty cubits wide by thirty cubits high (Genesis 6:15). which equates to approximately 450 feet long, by 75 feet wide, by 45 feet high.
=== Construction time ===
The Bible does not really tell us an exact number of years for the amount of time it took to construct this monstrous vessel. However, the first mention of Noah in Genesis 5:32 says, "Noah was five hundred years old," and then in 7:6 it says, "Now Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of water came upon the earth."
So it can really only be said that it took a maximum of 100 years to construct the ark, from the time God had given him the command to when he actually finished and was in the ship.
