    30 '/36' about 13'8"tall in the center. quonset style metal building. I think I paid about 9 grand for the building. A lot more for rock fill, foundation and slab.

    24x36 metal siding on 2x6 framing and 10' side walls. Uninsulated, completely wired for 110 and 220 plus a woodburner. Concrete floor and a drain in then center bay. 3 bays with 7' tall overhead doors which I wish were taller.

    Paid $52,000 for it but I got a house and a HUGE property with it. It's gonna be up for sale whenever my divorce finalizes so I can downsize to a smaller property and cheaper house. Hopefully the new property won't have a shop as I want to build a 30x50 this time.

    round top!

    Mine's a 20'x40' Quonset ,about 13' high..built in 1992,cost 4,050 bucks!..foundation and floor cost another 3500 installed..not hard wired yet--I get by with heavy duty extension cords--house is only 30' away..blacktop driveway "extension" to reach existing driveway cost another 500 bucks ..

    If I ever had to do it again,I'd get one twice as big,and partition it off into separate "bays",and high enough for an "upstairs" platform for an apartment or storage,and put radiant heat tubing in the slab--IF I built it where its cold enough to need heat(doubtfull!)..

    Only other type of building I'd use for a garage would be cinder block or a pole building with metal siding..

    I like the quonset,no maintenence and its pretty darn sturdy--mine has seen 100+ mph winds more than once,and 3+ feet of snow at least 4 times since I built it..way less expensive than wood,and it cant burn down..:crazy:
