    There are several calculator plugins available for wordpress, one of those might work for you - WPcalc looks promising. Otherwise, what language(s) do you program in? I know php best (and it's wordpress friendly), so I would start out googling 'php calculator', and if I didn't find anything I could work with, I would move on to googling 'javascript calculator'.

    Gravity Forms can do various calculations. It could certainly handle room quantity & furniture volume. Not sure about the rest, although it does have a ton of add ons.

    Volume of furniture?

    As for a tool that does this, Jotform is one that comes to mind. It's going to take some work to get it configured just right, but I like what they've done with their form design tool when it comes to adding calculation capabilities to nearly everything. And it has a distance between two places widget too.
