Steel Buildings have been part of the Military Environment for at least 50 years now.
In my time as an old Seabee I had my encounters with the Butler Building style of assembly after the legendary Quonset hut retired.
But the first I learned of the Butler Building’s successor—the modern Steel Building–was this Quonset style hut built from a completely different design.
This 30×60 open span building is assembled from pieces-Erector Set Style- all of which fit on a pallet small enough to be transported on a flat bed truck.
Each arch in the video was assembled in five sections with nothing more than ordinary bolts and a wrench.
My primary task on this job was to ensure the base plates were laid out perfectly square so the precision pieces would fit as designed.
On that score I am pleased to say the building fit together well.
If you need an inexpensive farm building that assembles with minimum skill and can be erected fairly quickly, the Erector Set Style building may be for you.
