Share on social

Are you ready to build your perfect home? Have you ever considered building a steel Quonset Hut home?

People in the process of building a house have countless decisions to make when trying to create a suitable living space. They have to figure out how much land is required, what kind of building materials work best, which location is convenient, and how much the upkeep will cost. The Quonset Hut™ home is a building solution that has been gaining in popularity over the years, and it can be customized to meet any homeowner’s needs.

SteelMaster’s customers have created some of the most sensational architectural masterpieces from our simple, strong arch design. Here are five ways building a Quonset Hut home can make this process much easier for you.

You don’t need to be an expert to build a Quonset Hut™

You don’t have to hire a professional to build a Quonset Hut home. It’s the perfect do-it-yourself project. About 80% of our customers design and construct their own buildings resulting in huge savings in labor costs. You’ll also save money on heavy equipment because it is not required to put together our prefabricated steel arches. Most of the work is done on the ground with only one size nut and bolt. The process is so easy, anyone can do it. Students, construction novices, and even a mother who was also taking care of three small children during the building phase were all able to follow the steps and put together a Quonset Hut with ease.

Quonset HutsTM are some of the strongest buildings in the world

The strength of a SteelMaster Quonset Hut is unmatched. Our buildings are engineered to withstand some of the strongest natural disasters. Our customers have survived some of the most dangerous tornadoes, hurricanes, snowstorms and earthquakes in their quonset hut buildings. Unlike wooden structures, steel cannot be destroyed by termites, cracks, splitting, rotting or fire.

Little maintenance required

Once you build a SteelMaster Quonset Hut home, unless you’re expanding it, you won’t have to break the bank to maintain it. Our buildings are coated with Galvalume Plus which is a clear, organic resin that protects the steel. The building does not require painting or treating, it’s simple to clean with soap and water, and the quality of our steel provides the strength that can withstand common bumps and bangs that occur over time.

Quonset HutTM homes are portable

Planning to move? Don’t waste your time looking for another home. You can simply pack up your SteelMaster and take it with you! Our buildings have the unique ability to be disassembled and reassembled in different locations. This is one of the main reasons why the military preferred Quonset Hut structures. These buildings were safe, affordable, and could be taken to the next mission easily.

Quonset HutsTM are environmentally friendly

If you’re looking for a totally “green” building option, steel is certainly the way to go. Our Quonsets are made from 100% recyclable material. This means that once a building is no longer in use, the steel used to build it can then be recycled again. The coating, Galvalume Plus, makes the buildings even more energy efficient. It helps to keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter and can save you a ton on energy bills. You can even customize each building to maximize energy savings by adding solar panels, skylights, and rainwater collection systems.

We could go on and on about the remarkable benefits of owning a SteelMaster Quonset HutTM home. Its strength and beauty is unmatched. Don’t just take our word for it, experience it for yourself!
