Why a Quonset Building is Ideal for Remote Locations
It doesn’t matter if you choose Modular, Manufactured, or Panelized construction, each part is made up of ready-made components, on an assembly line, in a factory, out of harm’s way from weather and thieves. After each of the pieces are built they are set up for transport to your site. Tractor trailers are used for transport and cranes are used for assembly.
Once at the site the modules sections or panels are assembled very quickly by just about anyone with construction skills.
The installation process begins with floor that was manufactured off-site. The floor panels are set on the permanent foundation, which can be a slab, crawl space or basement then. If your home choice is of the modular variety fully integrated mechanical rooms, bathroom modules, bedrooms and more are lifted into planned positions. Panelized construction would have the walls lifted and fitted into place. Quonset homes come in complete sections that are lifted into their proper place. Wall panels contain insulation, structure, windows, interior finishes, exterior siding and pipes and hoses for electrical and plumbing. The modules and panels go together like a well ordered puzzle. If you have basic building skills you can assemble most Modular, Panelized or Manufactured homes, no need for specialized contractors.
A quonset once delivered to your home site can be assembled and secure from the weather, critters and nare-do-wells within a few short weeks. Some homes have been erected in a week, you should check with your manufacturer and contractor for realistic time schedules. But in the end it will be up far more quickly than an onsite stick built model. The speed that prefab houses go up significantly reduces loss from materials theft. a Quonset building is generally assembled in less than six weeks.
Quonset are easily customized. When you sit down with your manufacturer they will have an architect that guides you through designing the dream home that complements your building site. It will then be built safely out of the elements and out of thieves reach. Your house will be personalized to your ideal and delivered to your homestead quickly. In a matter of several weeks you could be moving into your secluded home, rather than waiting endless months suffering countless set-backs from weather and sticky fingers that plague the traditionally built market.
