Question about Home Fencing

Ad

I am assuming you are talking about fencing in 3 sides of an area with each side being 25 feet long. Linear feet refers to only the running length of the fence. It doesn't care about height. For example, you fence will be 75 linear feet long...three sides each 25 feet. The price per linear foot already takes into account the fence height. For example, you say that the fence you want is about $15.00 per linear foot. For the sake of argument, say your fence is 4 feet high. If you were to change to a 3 foot high fence, the cost per linear foot would be less since there is less fencing material. If you wanted to up the height to 6 feet, the price would rise accordingly.

Broadly speaking, a linear foot is one dimensional, with the buyer getting a type of wood that is so many feet long. I want 6' of 2x4.

Broadly speaking, a board feet is a three dimensional measure. "A board foot is any dimensional equivalent of 1" x 12" x 12", such as 1" x 6" x 24", or 2" x 6" x 12"."

The link has a good discussion of this. The problem is wood is trimmed and referred to as the gross dimensions. For example, 6' of 2" x 4" is really 6' of 1 1/2 x 3 1/2. This complicates matters because if it close to 1" thick, it is considered 1"

Good luck,

Paul

that is one huge bathroom you must have the footage wrong. Divide the $762.50 by the cost of the carpet per square foot to get the cost .

linear feet is a length measurement as to how long it is --example : a piece of timber 20 feet long is 20 linear feet

the measurements you have provided will give a cubic feet measurements which is a volume measurement. so convert all the dimensions to feet , multiply all together and that will be your volume

You would need the dimensions of the item that you are trying to calculate the distance on. For example, a 12 inch by 12 inch tile is one square foot. 18 of them would be 18 square feet. If you place them end-to-end you would have 18 linear feet. However, if you had a 6 inch by 12 inch tile, it would take 36 of them to get 18 square feet. If you lined the tiles up in a row on the 6 inch side, you would have 18 linear feet. If you lined them up on the 12 inch side, you would have 36 linear feet. Linear feet does not take into account width, only length. So trying to translate a 2-dimensional value into a 1-dimensional value is difficult if not impossible without more details.

A total of 63 linear inches is 5 ft 3 in, or 5.25 linear ft.

Good morning Lisa!

There are likely two or three answers here.

Multiplying out directly, you get 9.3 x 11.7 = 108.81 sq feet.

But, the only floor covering that goes down like that is paint.

If you are putting down 12x12" tile, then you'll need to go 10 wide in the 9.3 foot direction (with cut tiles for the last .3 foot), and 12 long in the 11.7 direction, so you'll need 120 x one square foot tiles.

If it's tile of another dimension, divide the dimension into the 9.3 and into the 11.7, then round the answer up to the next whole number for each, and multiply together. 2x2 foot tiles would go 4->5 times for 9.3, and 5->6 times for 11.7, to give you 5x6=30 tiles x 4sq ft/tile = 120 sq feet.

If you're doing wooden flooring, you'll do a similar calculation based on the width of the wood laths, divided into one dimension and rounded up, times the linear feet needed in the other direction. If the boards are 4 inches wide, running parallel to the long wall, 4" goes into 9.3 feet 27 times, so round to 28. 28 x 4" = 9.333 feet You need 11.7 linear feet the other way. 11.7 x 9.333 = 109.2 sq feet. Though you won't likely be cutting 11.7 foot long pieces off of some piece as long as a full tree, so divide the board length into 11.7 and round up. If it comes in 3 foot sections, then 3 goes into 11.7 three times, round up to 4, so you'll have 28 widths x 1/3 foot per width x 12 feet length per strip = 112 sq feet.

Hoping this is helpful. good luck!

Linear feet is the total length of the board. Since your board is 34 inches long, almost 3 ft, it would be rounded up to 3 linear foot. (2.83 linear feet tobe exact)

if you wanted board foot, the Board ft is 5.67

Linear feet are a measure of length (no different from feet); square feet measure area. You cannot simply convert between measures of different kinds of quantities;the connection between them will be specific to a particular problem.A practical example in which this question can arise is in buying countertops for a kitchen. Some materials are sold by the square foot; others (basically those that are extruded, so they come in standard widths) are sold by the linear foot. In order to compare the two, you need to compute the area and wall length for the countertop you want.You can't convert between the two. All you have to do is to make the appropriate measurements so you can calculate the price of each item.The terms used in the lumber industry are a bit confusing.There are two terms that I think you might be mixing up.A LINEAR FOOT is simply the length of a board. If you want to know the area or volume of the board,you need additional information. For instance, 6 linear feet of 1-by-12 has an area of 6 square feet (12 inches = 1 foot, times 6 feet), and it's 1 inch thick, so the volume is 1/2 cubic foot (6 square feet times 1/12 foot). But 6 linear feet of a 1-by-6 board would have half the area and half the volume.A BOARD FOOT is equivalent to one square foot of a 1-inch-thick board. In other words, it is a square-foot-inch (ft^2-in), or 1/12 cubic foot.Linear feet are used for the pricing of a single size such as two-by-fours. Board feet are used for larger lumber that you are more likely to want to compare directly with different size boards .To sum up, neither a linear foot nor a board foot can be converted directly to square feet. A linear foot is a linear (length) measure, and a board foot is a volume measure. You need to know your particular board to do anything more, such as find the area.an example with an" L" shaped countertop will betwo rectangles are 24 by 80 inches and 24 by 36 inches. Thus the area is: 24 * 80 + 24 * 36 = 24 * (80 + 36) = 24 * 116= 2784 sq. in.To get it in square feet, divide by 144:

2784 / 144 = 19.33 sq. ft.The linear measure of this countertop would be 60 + 80 = 140 inches = 140/12 feet = 11.67 feet

2784 / 144 = 19.33 sq. ft.The linear measure of this countertop would be 60 + 80 = 140 inches = 140/12 feet = 11.67 feet
