    Size is 25 wide by 30 deep. Kinda small, but that's all that would fit behind my house.Price was $5480 delivered. The damn slab cost more than the building!!!! Peak is 14', so lots of room for engine hoist.

    Nice!...

    I built a similar Quonset in 1992---20x40 ft"Steelmaster" ,built by "Future" steel buildings in Ontario ..but mine is a "round top" one,I got mine cheaper than usual, because the person who bought it saw the "new" style gable arched roof design that just came about then(like yours!) ,right after he'd put a down payment on the building I ended up buying--he thought the gable design would look less "industrial" and fit in better in his crowded residential area,so he forfited his down payment,and bought the gable style building instead....I paid 4,050 dollars for it,it normally would have sold for 6,500 bucks..

    My building has stood up very well over the years--has been thru a few hurricane force wind storms and a dozen or more blizzards of 2+ feet of heavy wet snow..only the bolts are starting to rust,the galvalume arch panels still look new,just a bit dirty from tree sap and soot from my wood stoves..I'm very satisfied with my Quonset,wish I'd built it at least 10 years earlier...I'd not hesitate to buy another--I'm suprised the prices aren't much higher,steel has tripled in price the past few years.:crazy:

    Nice. I need a covered shop that I can get a truck into. Working out in the driveway sucks.

    Dumb question: Why are they called "Quonset"?
