    They have made it super easy though as you can just measure between two points in the model and resize until that piece will fit your measurements. To resize it's the "change Scale" tab in the drope down 2D menu header. Measure function is in the "Edit Mode" same header.

    I have the same problem as you, but in the opposite situation (I know it sounds wrong).
    I'm 5' 8", but stocky/fat. I can't resize most of the files, because they end up too long.
    So I'm going to have to make them 1:1 & add shims to make the pieces wider.
    You may have to do the same, but add your shims to the length (instead of width).
