A Home that Fits Your Family

Regardless of whether you're looking for a one person house, or a family home for 6 children. Quonsets are custom sized for whatever your needs may be. Choose a width from 16' to 50' plus, and essentially any length.

Easy Construction

These buildings have one of the simplest forms of construction. Arch panels are factory cut and drilled. Once your foundation is poured, the main tool to assemble them is a basic wrench and no special skills are needed. Then the interior can be framed and finished.

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:

A/P Model

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.

S Model

S Model

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.

Q Model

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.

R Model

R Model

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).

X Model

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.

T Model

T Model

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.
