The Quonset Hut Contractors

The Architect

We met with several architects in 2015 and finally chose one with experience in quonset huts and experience designing homes in the Fairplay/Southpark area, Wayne Anderson in Littleton, CO. Cost $3,195.

The Metal Building Supplier

We shopped long and hard for a metal building manufacturer that offers a steel building in the quonset hut style. After weeding out many (as they do tend to exaggerate their capabilities) we found the only one that could build a hut at that elevations and to the specifications required by Park County, Steelmaster. Cost $53,857

The Structural Engineer

Wayne (the Architect) worked with Paul Irwin of Ripple Design Studios for the Structural Engineering. Cost $1,200

The Surveyor's Site Plan

Wayne recommended... Cost $2,000

The Septic Design Report and Soils and Foundation Report

By CTL Thompson of Breckenridge. Cost $4,400

The Excavation, Driveway and Septic System

In January of 2016 we met with several companies at the property. We both were taken with Ken at Cal's Trucking. Ken's grandfather Cal started the business in Fairplay and it has remained a family operation with Ken, his mom and grandfather. Estimated at $33,000

The Well

We were told there is virtually only one well digger in Fairplay so in January of 2017 we stopped into Allen Drilling & Excavating and talked with Jack and his daughter Kay. They got us all set up with permit applications. Apparently wells in the area are 400 feet deep. So the estimate for well...

The Foundation

We are searching for a company to do the foundation. The building design is more like a commercial or industrial building so the mom and pop foundation company in Fairplay doesn't think they can handle it. This makes a difference on how the excavation work is done so we are a little held up until this is resolved.

The Flatwork

We will need to hire a contractor to do the flatwork (concrete slab floor).

The Rest of The Contractors

I am sure there will be many many more so check back.
