Elegant metal arch [quonset] buildings, possible?
It would be fun to have a little place in the country. I'm very interested in alternative buildings.
Is it possible to design and build an elegant quonset shaped building? A shape of 3 offset slices, of garlic bread, with glass ends.
Quonsets have their roots in the longhouses of the natives of the northeast. The quonset shape is VERY easy to heat, because of the arch recirculating the air.
It is very hard to cool. The old ones,of WWII era, were hard to insulate, but now there are modern materials, which would be best? Can cooling cupolas be fit? How hard is it, to fit a side arch to the main loaf?
How can it be made to look presentable???
