SteelMaster customer and Louisiana resident, Brad B., embarked on a journey to build his ultimate workshop sanctuary. With a passion for classic cars and a keen eye for quality craftsmanship, Brad’s quest for the perfect workspace led him to SteelMaster.

Brad’s building serves as a workshop, or as he affectionately calls it, a “glorified man cave.” Complete with an automobile lift for car maintenance, it’s a haven for his hobbies and passion for classic cars. Brad’s workshop isn’t just a place for mechanical work; it’s a space for relaxation too. With a leather chair, a cozy rug, and music playing in the background, Brad enjoys every moment spent in his workshop.

Choosing a Quonset Hut

Brad was drawn to Quonset huts due to their durability, ease of assembly, and unique design. Additionally, SteelMaster buildings are custom engineered to meet local wind and snow load requirements which was a huge appeal to Brad.

Brad states, “I knew that I liked the design of [Quonset huts], that they were strong, and could handle the environment here in Louisiana.”

Ease of Assembly

Putting up the Quonset hut was a collaborative effort for Brad and his friends. Over two weeks, they assembled the structure, following the thorough instructions provided. Brad emphasizes the importance of patience and following directions, ensuring a smooth construction process.A-Model garage with steel endwall
