Roofing Detail Illustrations

I was recently asked by my rep at Carroll Supply about the exact sizes of each roof section that required metal roofing. I had given him approximations before, but with the supplier willing to cut the pieces to size, now I needed them exact.

After some careful measurements and basic math (a²+b²=c²), I came up with the following measurements and illustrations. (note that these also show a few minor changes to the length of the both the middle fold-up roof section and to the deck).

1 - Main Roof
22' 2" x 8' 4 11/16"

2 - Entry Door Overhang
3' x 9' 3"

3 - Top Fold-up Section
22' 2" x 2'

4 - Bottom Fold-up Section
23' x 2'

5 - Storage Shed
3' 6" x 2' 2"

6 - South Wall
8' x 11' 6 1/2"

7 - North Wall
8' x 10' 6 1/2"




I've realized that being able to illustrate my ideas really helps a lot during the quoting, materials gathering and production process. My trailer, for example, would likely not have come out quite right without the sketches and illustrations I sent them along the way. I think the same will be true in getting the exact metal roof sizes to fit my plan (and hopefully the actual framing, once constructed).
