Nissen hut search

A reader of Shedworking has written in anonymously to ask the following:
I would like to buy an old Nissen hut to dismantle and re-erect as a storage building. Anyone know where I can get one? I'd prefer the fibre concrete sheets rather than steel. I live in Kent but would of course be prepared to travel, dismantle, collect etc. Any ideas?

  1. Nissen and Quonset Huts.
    I am starting on the renovation of a Nissen and a Quonst hut.
    I need some plans to compare mine with so I keep the building in line with thier original specificatio. Bothare in remarkable condition, the Nissen Hut is going to make an excellent cinema and the Quonset I am spec'ing for my father in law as a country retreat.
    Any advice help will be gratefully received. At the end of the project I will be having a party ofr all helpers, we are in Lincolnshire, close to Sturgate Airfield.

    Did you locate the Nissen Hut you were after? I have one that i would consider parting with. It is a genuine completely authentic hut in need of tlc

    Buyer would obviously have to collect.

    GT Evans in Wales will supply (& erect, @ extra cost!) the modern version of these wonderful WW I inventions. They do have a website & can advise on various aspects, prior to delivery of such. Such as concrete foundation pouring, et cetera.

    Sometimes they DO come up as part of the catalogue listing of farms being auctioned off.
