When thinking about building your own home, it’s likely that you may get overwhelmed with all of the information required. You’ll need to know the land space needed, the upkeep cost, and the best choice of material. While the first things to come to mind may be wood or bricks, be sure to also consider the benefits of steel.
The simple yet sturdy design of a Quonset hut makes it an ideal choice when looking to build a home. It is easily customized for all of your needs, durable and strong. We’ve put together a list of some of the many benefits of building a Quonset hut.
Strong – When compared to wood and other materials, steel is much more durable. It is able to withstand extreme weather conditions such as heavy snow, strong winds, earthquakes and rain. They are also able to resist pests such as termites, cracks, rot and fires.
Low-Maintenance – Unless you plan to expand your Quonset hut, there is very little required to maintain it in excellent condition. All of the steel buildings from Future Buildings are made from Galvalume PlusÔ steel, which is an alloy that bonds to the steel and helps to protect the metal and prevent rust. They are easy to clean with soap and water and offer strength to withstand any bangs or bumps your home may encounter.
Portable – Originally used in the military, these structures needed to be able to move to the next mission location easily. This means you don’t have to worry if you may be moving in the future because your Quonset hut home is portable. Disassemble the structure when required and bring the pieces to the new location for reassembly.
Easy Construction – A majority of people choose to build their Quonset hut on their own without the help of professionals, which helps to save on labour costs. For smaller, simple design homes there is also no heavy equipment required, as most work is done on the ground. All of the nuts and bolts are the same size, meaning there is no sorting that needs to be done, and construction is straightforward.
Eco-Friendly – Many steel buildings are made from recyclable material. This means that once you no longer need the building, the pieces can be recycled and used for other structures. In addition to this, the coating on the steel helps to make it more energy efficient, keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. It is also possible to add accessories such as solar panels and skylights to your home to make it more efficient.
