  • I downvoted your question because you are asking people to do arithmetic for you without explaining why you cannot do the arithmetic yourself – jsotola May 24 at 4:27

Two 80' walls and two 16' walls. The perimeter is 80+80+16+16. 192?

It looks to be about 8' tall, so 192 x 8 = your square footage of siding.

If you think about 4-foot sections of wall, in 192' there are 48 four-foot sections.

Studs are either 24" (2 per 4' section = 96) or 16" (3 per 4' section or 144). Sometimes 12" (192 obviously).

  • Joists? I think you mean studs. Would there be headers & footers too? (Not sure how mobile home framing is done) – manassehkatz May 23 at 16:56
