ESRI JavaScript API - Creating Polygons from Lengths and Widths? Supported/Possible?

Hello Everyone!  Looking at the possibility of creating a simple application where a polygon is drawn and then a buffer is produced from the polygon.  I already know there is a sample to do this and can make this work.

Here is the challenge, I need the polygon to be exact...something like 6 feet x 8 feet or 8 feet x 12 feet and etc.

Does the JS API support specifying exact lengths and widths of building a polygon almost like a COGO type tool?  From what I have seen, I am not sure this is supported.

I need the height and width to be exact.  Drawing the polygon is easy, but when needing to specify the exact height and width..this become a challenge.  I am wanting to do an application rather than installing ArcGIS Desktop.

Has anyone made this work?
