Unique Quonset Hut Home Will Give You Design Inspiration
Thinking about purchasing a SteelMaster Quonset Hut home? One look at a unique property in New Tazewell, Tennessee will inspire you to grab your tools and get started on your project!
Despite being nicknamed “The Tin Can House,” the home isn’t actually made of tin—it’s a Q-Model SteelMaster metal Quonset Hut. The steel Quonset home was built in 2015 and sold on April 6, 2018 for $138,000, according to a listing on Zillow.
The home is supported by the iconic silver SteelMaster arches. The building’s custom endwalls compliment the color scheme of the home’s interior, with red shingles on top half and silver cladding on the bottom. Large windows on the endwalls allows for plenty of natural light.
Not only is this Tennessee home stylish on the outside, it’s just as amazing on the inside. Our Quonset Hut™ kits feature a completely open layout, allowing customers the option to use every inch of the interior space. This home used that space to create an open-concept floor plan with no interior columns.
Here’s how the listing describes the interior features of the home:
“As soon as you walk in, you see the living room, dining room and kitchen. With almost 17′ ceilings, your eyes are drawn to a large open loft. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level too. Natural materials used inside create a warm & inviting feeling. Low maintenance concrete floors complement the industrial look, while multi-colored wood panels & birch trim form the interior color palate. Skylights, windows & doors allow lots of natural light. The galley kitchen has a clean, commercial feel with industrial lighting, steel shelving & butcher block & stainless-steel countertops.”
The two acre property has breathtaking long-range mountain views, facing due east with scenes of the Clinch River gap.
There are many additional benefits of owning a SteelMaster Quonset Hut™ home. Our Quonset home kits are a great choice for the do-it-yourselfer. Our buildings only require one nut and one bolt to assemble, making them easy to put together even for a building novice. This means there’s no need for expensive construction crews or contractors, which saves a ton of money during the building process. The buildings are easy to build, cost effective, extremely durable, and can be customized into some of the most spectacular architectural masterpieces.
Our metal buildings are eco-friendly and reduce energy costs. This is because every SteelMaster Quonset Hut™ home comes with a special coating, Galvalume Plus, which makes the entire building more energy efficient. It shields it from the sun during the hot summer months and makes it easier to heat during the winter. It also protects the steel from corrosion over time.
