In reply to GABLE VRS HIP ROOF ON OSB TAKE-OFF by john wiley on March 31st, 2002 08:43 AM [Go to top of thread]

I come up with about the same as DH,for both gable and hip. At 40 foot wide and 6/12 pitch common rafters are 22'4-3/8",thats with no overhang,still have to factor that in.The rest is simple geometry.Have to add for hip&ridge on the roofing for hip roofbut, the square footage is about the same.I don't know about the waste you are talking about on a hip roof,what you cut off one piece you use to start the next row. Not much waste if you layed it out right.
