A contractor is building a 40' x 24' single story house with a 6/12 straight gable roof and 96" from sole plate to top plate. How many 4' x 8' sheets of wall sheathing are required? Do not deduct openings or add waste.

37
How they figure it:

40+40+24+24=128
128LF / 4LF = 32 Pieces

For Gables:

The 6/12 pitch would give us a gable peak of 72", or 6'
6' x 24' = 144 sq. ft.

144 sq ft / 32 sq. ft. is 4.5 pieces
of course you round up 4.5 to 5 pieces. 32 + 5 = 37
