Quonset Garage Styles
Originally quonsets came exclusively in a semi-circular arch style (Q Model below). Over time they shifted from a bare-bones military focus to be used for residential purposes like garages, workshops, etc. That shift resulted in a wide variety of profiles which are available today. Aside from aesthetics, these profiles all have their own popular uses and benefits. The most popular styles are listed below along with a few details.
A Model (P Model)This is the most popular quonset model of building for residential garages. Its straight walls and peaked roof most closely resemble traditional buildings so it blends seamlessly with existing buildings, like your home.
S ModelS Model quonset garages are the second most popular (after A models). Straight walls provide tons of side storage space and a traditional look. The arched roofline provides a high ceiling which is easier to make than the A model’s so it’s normally less expensive.
Q ModelWhile it’s no longer the only model of quonset available, the Q Model is still a very popular option. This style of quonset is the easiest to manufacture so it’s the least expensive for your garage. The sloping sides make it more suitable to larger commercial garages.
R ModelWant a simple carport, or do you want to build your own walls from bricks or another material to blend in with existing buildings? Then the R Model roofing system is your best option. Here the arch panels act as a roof to keep your cars safe and your costs down.
X ModelThe sloping walls of the X model quonset offers additional strength over a straight wall design. This makes it a popular option for two car garages, commercial garages, or garage workshop combos in higher snow-load areas.
T ModelIf you’re looking to add an attached garage onto an existing building, then the T Model is likely perfect for you. Arch panels form the one side while the other can butt up against an existing building like your home.
Why Quonsets Make Great DIY Garage Kits
The Quonset Hut is a structure that has been around for some time. The George A. Fuller Company invented the hut during World War II by the United States Navy. At Quonset Point in Rhode Island, is where it was first produced, and this is how it got its name. The design has been modified since then, and they now have more stability and have larger arch overlaps to stop leaking. There are also more profiles available now, so you have more options. They are great for garages, and you can get many different kits.
When you want to create a garage, barn, or other small storage building, the Quonset is an excellent option. These are a great investment. They are affordable, durable, and are easy to put up. They are hardy and will resist harsh weather conditions. They are perfect for garages and many other uses. They come in many different sizes
