This online book details materials and steps needed to build a simple, inexpensive quonset hut shelter for goats and other critters. Protect them from wind, rain, and other elements.)

Total assembly time: under 1.5 hours.

Parts and supplies needed:

  • Two 16' x 52" cattle panels (will provide an 8' by 10' shelter)
  • One heavy-duty tarp (Costco has a nice one for sale.) (dimensions forthcoming)
  • Three 6' t-posts, cut in half
  • Black heavy-duty UV resistant cable ties - 8" and 10" lengths

The pages that follow will detail the process of assembling the Quonset hut. We'll include detailed photos, as well.

Please note that the design presented herein is not intended for use in areas having any snow accumulation - if you expect any amount of snow, you will need to add some kind of bracing, or, choose a narrower layout which will create a higher, sharper peak that will allow the snow to slide off the roof.
