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).
