How to get form to the left of the map

I'm trying to get the form to the left of the map, the way it looks here: http://www.consolidatedutilities.com/contact.

I've attached images of how this looks. Here is my HTML and CSS.

I also need to get rid of the view larger map, I used inspect element and it showed a link inside of some <small> tags but when I removed it from the browser it didn't seem to stick, and I can't find the same tags in my HTML.

The reference page is clumsy in it's implementation. I would borrow from Bootstrap and do this
<div class="row">
   <div class="col-50">
      <!-- FORM HERE -->
   <div class="col-50">
        <iframe .... > <!-- MAP HERE -->

Open in new window

.row {
   margin-left: -15px
   margin-right: -15px;
.row:after {
  display: table;
  content: " ";
  clear: both;
.col-50 {
   width: 50%;
   float: left;
   padding-right: 15px;
   padding-left: 15px;
