Log Cabin Bunkie

Do you need extra space? A Log Cabin Bunkie Kit gives you a quick way to set up a backyard Guest House, Cottage Bunkie, Office, Studio or anything you can imagine with extra space.

Six windows bring in a lot of natural light, there is a large main area and loft, and your new space takes only 1-2 days to build. No building permit or power tools required.

We purchased our first Bunkie in 2015. We loved it so much; we now own four. Next, we researched the market and found the best Log Cabin Bunkie for the most reasonable price. We want you to enjoy them as much as we do.
