Quonset Hut Home Profiles
The earliest quonsets came in a basic semi-circle shape. These days you can choose a quonset in a variety of different profiles to fit your space and aesthetic preferences. The most common shapes are below:
This style of quonset offers the most traditional home-look with straight vertical walls and an angled roofline which comes to a peak. It's one of the most common housing choices for that reason but is slightly more expensive than some others.
The S Model is quickly becoming the most popular style of choice for quonset hut home builders. It's vertical walls offer much more useable space than with a pure-curve, and you still get the style benefits of an arched quonset style roof.
When it comes to quonset styling, the Q is king (or queen). This profile is the original style for quonset buildings and resembles a semi-circle. It offers the most affordable cost per square foot, but you may find less useable space right by the angled walls.
Sometimes all you need is a roof and that's exactly what the R Model provides. It allows you to build the walls of your house out of traditional brick or wood framing. The arch-style roofing system then sits on top to provide a steel-strong, low maintenance roof with minimal clearance (perfect for skylights).
While not the most popular housing option, X Models are closer to a traditional look than a standard arch. The slight outward slope of the side-walls allows for much more strength in high snowload areas than an A or S Model do.
The T model of quonset is essentially a lean-to since it butts up against a pre-built wall or structure. This can make it a good solution for someone who wants to have an exterior wall with a large number of windows, or if you're looking to add an addition onto your existing home.
