You know rj628, you haven't brought one positive thing into the mix. There's no need for the comments.

Owner of a contracting firm doesn't know you can't convert square footage to cubic yardage? I'm assuming that owner relies on strong estimators.

Yeah, like when I waste hours converting metric to standard on all my DOT bids. Very handy indeed.

What can't? I'm not understanding what you're trying to say.

Sometimes the metric system seems to come in a little bit more handy. :)

There is a deeper problem here. It is important to know that:

Linear measurement is one-dimensional; we are measuring length only. (inch, foot, yard)
Point A to Point B (distance) = Length
Square measurement is two-dimensional; we are measuring length AND width. (square inch, square foot, square yard) Length X Width = Area
Cubic measurement is three-dimensional; we are measuring length, width AND height. (cubic inch, cubic foot, cubic yard) Length X Width X Height (OR Thickness OR Depth) = Volume

You cant convert SQUARE feet into cubic yards no. You can convert CUBIC feet into cubic yards or square feet into square yards.

9 square feet = 1 square yard

27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard

These are not the EXACT conversions, but they are close enough for estimating purposes.
