Excellent. sounds like a pretty stout building. Do you understand the squareness measurement of the 6-8-10 formula?

If I didn't have to work, I would come out. Your closer than I thought you were. Mapquest said an hour and 14 inches so I could do it in about 45 minutes.

The diagonal of your 24X36 building will be 43' 3 1/8". It' called the pythagorean theorem. "A" squared + "B" squared = "C" squared.

24X24= 576
36X36= 1296

576+1296= 1872

Square Root of 1872= 43.26ft= 43' 3 1/8"


Hope this helps.
