As you can see below, both the P-Model & S-Model kit buildings have straight side walls allowing for additional storage; due to the fact that equipment, inventory etc. can be placed directly against the wall resulting in virtually zero wasted space.
Whilst the S-Model retains its traditional curved roof design the P-Model has a more traditional gable-style roof pitch (most commonly used for garages and residential shops).
The benefits of owning a Quonset are obvious, but there’s one BIG benefit to weigh after crunching the numbers.
Unlike other pre-fabricated storage that requires a contractor to erect, Quonset building kits snap together. All you need is a length of rope, a friend to hold panels in place and a socket wrench. That’s it.
Over 75% of customers who purchase Quonset hut kits, assemble their buildings themselves.
Why? Because they can. You don’t need any special tools, you don’t need any special skills. All you need is some time to bolt together robust storage or living space, saving your tens of thousands of dollars on contractor costs.
This drops total cost of ownership even further, but maybe you’re not the do-it-yourself kind of person. No problem, just speak to a local general contractor about quoting for the erection of your new building.

Pre-Delivery: You will need to level the ground the kit will be built on. Then you will need to pour a foundation. If your building will be storing heavy vehicles or machinery then a 4″ floating foundation will be required. Alternatively, if you do not require a solid floor then a simple pier foundation will suffice.
Delivery: Each building-kit arrives on site ready for assembly – even if you never built anything in your life. Arch building kits are made up of light-weight, 40-pound panels, a bag of bolts, customized fasteners and a set of complete, step-by-step instructions with pictures.
Construction: If you can turn a wrench, you can assemble a Quonset hut kit. They really are that simple.
You don’t need any heavy equipment so construction is easy, even in tight spaces. As per the image below, you will need two people, a piece of rope & ladders to lift the arched panels into place and a socket wrench to bolt everything together. Also, you will only need one size socket, as all the bolts are the same size, further simplifying the construction process!
Once the slab (or pier) has set, simply bolt together one panel at a time. Lift each into place, position and tighten a few bolts from the bag, then, move on to the next two-foot panel.
Because the arches for Quonsets are solid steel, they support their own weight as you move along each panel.
Finishing: Once the arches have been raised and bolted firmly it is time to add the end walls. The end walls give your new building a custom look. Choose from standard metal or add brick, hardy board or even shingles.
Accessories: Want a door large enough to handle heavy farm equipment or even a jet plane? Chose from a range of options – overhead doors, bi-fold doors, hangar doors, man doors.
Add energy-efficient windows, entryways, balconies, split-level mezzanines, skylights and all of the other goodies that make workspace more productive and living space more lavish.
So, even if you aren’t a DIY kind of guy or gal, this is one project you can take on with confidence. Just follow the easy-to-read, illustrated directions, give yourself a couple of days and you’ve got the space you need or want at a cost that will surprise you.
