We're building in the Caribbean...the roof is 6000 sq. feet, but the builder/carpenter needs to have this converted to BF (board feet?) to get the correct pieces of wood?

How would I convert square feet to board feet?

Things seems totally strange here on a few different fronts. But anyways, the answer to your question is multiply the length in inches by the width in inches by the depth in inches and divide that by 144.

(LxWxD)in inces/144. In your case assuming

1 inch thickness the board feet will be 6000.
