**Estimating Shingles:**

Find the the Square Footage to be Covered

Divide by 100 to find the # of Squares on the Roof

It takes 3 Bundles to cover a Square if you use 3Tab Shingles

Add 10% to account for Waste

**TarPaper UnderLay: **

Use the Square Footage of the Roof

A Roll of #15 Tar Paper covers 4 Squares

**Drip Edge.** Measure the Rakes and Eaves of the Roof

**Nails: **At 3 Nails/Shingle, get 240 Nails per Square

Pick your **Color**

Make the **Paint**

**Paint Estimator:**

Add the Length of Walls and Multiply by the Wall Height

Subtract 20 SF per Door & 15 SF per Window

Expect 1 US Gallon of Paint to cover about 350 SF

[New DryWall needs more]

**Trim Paint:** Multiply Length of Trim by Half, to get SF to Paint.

For Small **Concrete **Projects, Norm has Sacks of Cement Mix

**Concrete Calculator** (to make a Cement Mix)

The Mix is a ratio of 1:3:4, Cement to Sand to Coarse

A Common Approach is Bags of Cement/Cubic Yard of Mix Ratio

6 Bag Mix:

6 Bags of Cement, 15 CF of Sand and 20 CF of Coarse

7 Bag Mix: 15 CF of Sand and 21 CF of Coarse

**Estimate Rough Lumber:** Sketch the Building

Exterior Wall: Needs Plates 3 Times the Total Wall Length

Divide Walls Total Length (inches) by 16 for the Number of Studs

Per Corner: Add 4 Studs

**Headers: **2 Pieces 2 x 4 per Header; 2 Pieces 2 x 12 per Header

**# Trusses:** Length (inches) of Long Sides of Building.

Divide by 16. Add 2.

**# PlyWood Sheets:** Find the Area of the Walls.

Divide by 32 to get Number of Sheets
