I don't know what it is supposed to look like either. What grid? If your figures can be of any shape, then you can simply draw a rectangle with a width of, say, 1.5 units and a length of 5 units. Or some other variation.

Are you sure that this is the entire problem?
Code:

      *       |  *     3 |    *       |  y    *       *-----------*             5         1       *---*       |    *       |      *     3 |        *       |    z    *       |            *       *---------------*               4
