Take off eh??
What fun, you have your lumber yard do one to back yours up on the material list too? Ahh the ol day's.
Are you using any software plans, or just old fashioned.

Lumber yard, lord no. Contemporary house with shingles, flat roofs and radius curved standing seam metal panels. Even the shingle houses can't do a take off. When we have a slate bid they'll send it off to Greenstone in VT or Ludiwici in Oh for tile. We are usually pretty close on dimensions.

We are old school with a architect scale and a full set of plans, pot of coffee and the dining room table. Makes for some good alone time.

Default ahhhyes

Old fashioned, that's my only way also..if it works ,don't break it.

I just gave my neighbor a price to replace his old 24x24 garage, hip roof. It has a 4 foot ridge, wood shingle , with slats and 3 layers of asphalt 3 tabs and interlocks. Not to mention the rafters are 26 inches on center.

I told him 6400, he got pissy and has a guy to do it for 3200.
I can't wait to hear about the 4 ply goin down with no clips, and the shingles broke and could I look at it....should be about a 6 months till the knock on my door. Then the price doubles.

Is it true that Americans have tails and eat their young?
