Do you need extra space? The bunkie is a perfect solution. Whether it be at your cottage or home, our bunkies can be assembled in a few days and will provide you with 99 – 199 square feet of extra living space. It’s easier to assemble (than building from scratch) and it comes with all the necessary hardware needed to put it together.
Our bunkies are ideal for a cottage bunkie, backyard bunkie, home office, studio or anything you need extra space for. No building permit is required in many parts of North America (although we always recommend to check with your municipality).
We built our first bunkie in 2015. We loved it so much, we built five more. Now, we manufacture the best bunkies at our factory in Rockwood, Ontario and ship across Canada and USA. We hope you will enjoy them as much as our clients do.

WHY BUILD A BUNKIE
Bunkies are the best way to build extra space on your cottage or home property.
You can have extra space for guests, a home office, studio, or a private getaway to enjoy your favourite area of your property. You could also turn your bunkie into an Airbnb to earn extra money.
A bunkie is a great place for extra space, a getaway for family or friends, a studio, private spot for writing or reading, and grandkids, families and friends love them!
“We built a bunkie because we needed the extra space for visiting family. We also plan to rent it out as it sits on 60 acres of wooded farmland”
“I started looking at my options for extra space. I realized that building an addition would be too expensive and time-consuming. A bunkie seemed like the perfect solution, so I ordered and built it in the fall of 2021.”
The possibilities are endless, and the best part is you can build a bunkie in a few days.
