pieces of lumber used for framing (c) would be calculated by a takeoff from the framing drawing. (para 5-2,**a**)

number. (para 5-2,**d**) (fig 5-2)

will be assigned an item number. The description 2 x 4 -8ft will appear in the "item" column. The

abbreviation for pieces (PCS) will appear in the "unit" column and the number 10 will be listed under the

"quantities required" column. (para 5-4,**b**) (fig 5-2)

of the tent floor is 8' 10" or 106". Assuming a 15-percent waste factor, the correct calculation is listed as

choice b: 106" divided by 5 1/2" /.85, or 23 pieces of lumber 10 feet long. (para 5-4) (table 2-1) (fig 5-3)

needed for each sleeper; thus six pieces will be required. (para 5-4) (fig 5-3)

Since four braces are required, two pieces of 1 x 6-10 ft would have to be ordered. (para 5-4) (fig 5-3)

the drawing, four skirt boards are specified. (para 5-4) (fig 5-3)

1" long, four more 2 x 4-10 ft are needed. When these four pieces are cut to a proper length of 5' 1", four

pieces of length 4' 11" will remain. Two of these four pieces can be cut to a length of 3' 7" and used as the

center uprights. Therefore, two 2 x 4-10 ft for the top rails and four 2 x 4-10 ft for the uprights adds to a total

of six 2 x 4-10 ft. (para 5-4) (fig 5-3)
