Hip Roof Framing Calculator

You guys ROCK, let me just tell you.

Hurricane Maria blew both of our roofs off on our farm in Puerto Rico.

Found your calculator and fiddled around with it until the numbers came out convenient in terms of rafter length and so on, and plunged on in.

I literally *could not have done this* without your calculator, but we finished the roof in December.

Now I'm using your calculator for two more roof jobs for neighbors.

Hip Roof Framing

Hi, your Hip Roof Framing Calculator helped a DIY guy like myself make something I am quite proud of! I do consider myself handy but by no means close to any tradesman. We saw a wooden gazebo package at Home Depot this spring and though, "I want to make this from scratch".
Drawings for the base had been pretty straightforward but when it came to the roof I attempted to remember the Soh-Cah-Toa triangle stuff from high school geometry and knew I was over my head.
After a bit of Googling I found your glorious site, pumped in the measurements and printed it out!
A few practice cuts with the mitre saw and templates I was ready to go!
I am finishing the ridge cap tonight, then will enjoy a beer or two under the roof.


Segmented Turning Your site is amazing-wish it was available when I was younger and tackling construction projects. However, it’s my go to site for making segmented bowls. This one has maple, wenge, bocote, elm, and western red cedar. It’s 3” x 11” →
← 5” x 16”, walnut, aromatic cedar (western red), Spalted maple (southern), blood wood (Satine)

DON'T BREATH THE DUST If you're cutting blocks, concrete, stone or ANYTHING and there's DUST - DON'T TAKE THE RISK
Don't cut it, or cut it wet so there's NO DUST - Silicosis Sucks
And if you're cutting wet, wear a mask - theres dust in the spray too!

How should we spell it?
