Or Just an Acceptable Solution
Metal Quonset Hut Price Ranges

Are You in the Market for a Building Kit?
If you’re in the market for a new metal building kit, though, it’s important to understand that the US government didn’t choose the Quonset hut for its structural integrity. Rather, as the Alaska Dispatch News article reports:
“Tents did not provide sufficient protection in Alaska against wind, snow, ice and cold; standard building materials, wood-frame structures on cement foundations, were cost prohibitive and difficult to transport. More than 30,000 Quonset huts were sent to and utilized in Alaska because they were an appropriate solution to a critical need.”
Essentially, the Quonset hut isn’t necessarily popular because thousands of individuals have decided it was the best solution for their project – it could be due more to convenience, comfort and price. That’s not to say that the Quonset hut doesn’t have it’s advantages, but it’s important to have comparisons of value, durability, versatility, and price before evaluating if a Quonset hut or a rigid-frame steel building is the right choice for your project.
