      It’s 396 feet (132 yards) of 3″ tape to tape the edges of all 12 boards, including the roof panels cut in half.
      (Note: this does not count edging for doors and windows. Based on the size of your door and number of windows, you will need to add the extra tape necessary for this.)

      It’s 198 feet (66 yards) of the 6″ bi-directional filament tape to be used for assembly on the playa.

      Hat tip to Craig.

      Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

      Just an update on this post. If you are using the tape hinge method made popular by Camp Danger (Video Instructions here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jWrWaTKXr4&list=PL9CE1AE21967A6FD8 )you should use these dimensions:

      Vertical 4’ walls: 48’
      Roof: 108’
      Roof to wall attachment: 48’
      Tape Anchors: 60’
      Total: 264’ or 88 yards not including any waste
      So you need two 60’ rolls.
