Wide Range of Uses

Or extra space for a home office, photography, art or music studio, She Shed, Man Cave, or a place to escape to enjoy your favourite area on your property.

Earn money from one by turning it into an Airbnb. Check out our Airbnb in Erin, Ontario.

Also, for fun you could have a playhouse for your grandkids, private spot for yoga or meditation or a private writing or reading area.

Ontario Cabin Bunkie Kits

Do you need extra space? A Bunkie Kit is a quick way to build a backyard bunkie, cottage bunkie, office, studio or anything you can imagine with extra space.

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 are 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 Bunkie Kits for the most reasonable price. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

What is a Bunkie?

A Bunkie is a small cabin for extra space and a beautiful addition to any property. The 2018 Log Cabin Bunkie has 82 sq ft of interior space plus a 33 sq ft loft big enough for a Queen size bed.
No building permit is required, and you do not need power tools to set it up.

What Do You Use it For?

Since four people can sleep in the bunkie, clients have purchased our Bunkies to use as a backyard guest house for family or friends, cottage bunkie, home office, art studio or a place for personal space.

You could also earn money from one by turning it into an Airbnb. We have a successful Airbnb in Erin, Ontario.

For fun you could have a man cave or a she shed, a playhouse for the grandkids, private spot for yoga or meditation, a micro-bar, private reading area, or that special place you've always wanted.

Why buy a Bunkie kit?

It will save you time, energy and money. Purchasing all the components of a Bunkie in a kit means you do not have to measure and cut each piece individually, or worry if everything is going to line up. You can build the Bunkie in one weekend and start enjoying it right away.
