first as with any building, there are positives and negatives,A Quonset hut is a lightweight prefabricated structure of corrugated galvanized steel having a semicircular cross section. The design was based on the Nissen hut developed by the British during World War I. The name comes from their site of first manufacture, Quonset Point, at the Davisville Naval Construction Battalion Center in Davisville (a village located within the town of North Kingstown, Rhode Island).
Same at Purdue, they were used for returning vets on the GI Bill after WWII, then the huts were turned into giant chemistry labs. Spent one semester in a quonset hut lab. First use of CCTV. The professor in charge would have a five minute speech over the TV for the lab assignment, then the hoard of grad assistants took over.They were used as married student housing at Iowa State University for many years.I had friends and relatives live in them.No major complaints from anyone.I would live in one.
