carving out sofa real estate Anyway. It was early July and hot the day I reported in; the sort of hot you carry in your lungs. I knocked on the glass door and as I did so, caught a glimpse of my own tired reflection. Let me just say that carving out sofa real estate with a flatulent dog does nothing for one's complexion. I would like to know what does " carving out sofa real estate" in this paragraph mean. Thanks in advance for your kind help.

"Carving out sofa real estate" means claiming a spot on the sofa for himself. He's sharing the sofa with the dog, so he has to shove the dog over to make space for himself.
