## Lean-To Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of a lean-to.

LTC = A * CPSF

- Where LTC is the total lean-to cost ($)
- A is the total area of the lean-to (ft^2)
- CPSF is the cost per square foot of material used for the lean-to ($/ft^2)
- The average cost of material for a lean-to is $16.00 per square foot

To calculate the lean-to cost, multiply the area of the lean-to by the cost per square foot of the material used to make it.

## What is a lean-to?

Definition:

A lean-to is a structure that is built by sharing one wall with a larger structure and having a roof that leans against the wall.

## How to calculate lean-to cost?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines how to calculate the cost of a lean-to.

First, determine the total area of the lean-to including the roof and wall. For this example, the total area is 50 square feet.

Next, determine the cost per square foot of the material. In this case, the CPSF is $16.00.

Finally, calculate the lean-to cost using the formula above:

LTC = A * CPSF

LTC = 50 * 16

LTC = $800.00
