The main advantages of them are that they’re incredibly quick to build (even in areas without power) and they’re cheap (since they’re mostly made from recycled steel). Apart from being quick and cheap, Quonset hut buildings are also extremely resistant to the effects of nature and they can withstand even the most turbulent weather conditions. Their shape played a large part in this; since they look like a tin can cut in half (like a giant semi circle) strong winds have little effect on them, and they quite easily stay rooted to the ground. This is particularly impressive when you consider that they require no foundations of any kind (as most regular houses do), and when you compare this with how most tents are affected by the wind.
Another massive advantage of Quonset hut buildings is that they can quite easily withstand fire, and there’s no chance of them burning down like most other buildings would. This is especially useful when you consider that lots of these buildings were built in the middle of a warzone (where fire and explosions were likely).
Today it seems that Quonset buildings have come back into popularity again, and it’s now possible to buy them online. Once you’ve ordered one, the parts will be sent to you and (depending on whether you ordered them as well or not) a set of builders will be there to construct it for you.
