Internet sites such as Quonset-hut.org, Houzz.com, Steelmasterusa.com, Buildingsguide.com and Quonsethouse.com provide plans for Quonset hut homes, as of 2015. Online resources are convenient ways to find photographs, cost estimates, and architectural designs for modern Quonsets.
Quonset hut homes are prefabricated structures made from lightweight corrugated steel or galvanized iron. The arch-shaped building can serve as durable and fashionable living space, according to SteelMaster. During the World War I, Quonset structures were the preferred accommodation for British and American soldiers, says BuildingsGuide. In place of the rugged steel structures of World War I, building companies can now provide aesthetically-appealing Quonsets.
The modern Quonset home can include straight custom-built walls, and the inside is finished with brick or stucco, says Quonset-Hut. To make the house attractive, building firms can install windows, mezzanine floors, skylight panels and all the internal accessories, including electricity, heating equipment or plumbing, reports SteelMaster.
