Bunkie Kits Ontario

Do you need extra space? A bunkie kit is an easier way to build a cottage bunkie, backyard bunkie, home office, studio or anything you can imagine with extra space.

Windows bring in a lot of natural light, there is a large main area, some models have a loft, and your new space takes only 1-2 days to build. No building permit is required in Ontario.

We purchased our first bunkie in 2015. We loved it so much, we now own five. 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.

WIDE RANGE OF USES

Bunkies are the best way to build extra space at your cottage or backyard.

You can have extra sleeping space for family or friends, a home office, a private getaway to enjoy your favourite area on your property or a studio.

Earn money from a bunkie by turning it into an Airbnb. Learn more about starting your own Airbnb bunkie.

A bunkie is a getaway for adults or teens, a playhouse for your grandkids, or a private spot for writing or reading.

The possibilities are endless and the best part is you can build it in 1-2 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Bunkie?

A bunkie is a small cabin that adds extra space to your property. Most of our bunkies are under 108 sq. ft. so they don't require a building permit. All the wood in the bunkie kit is precut and sized so you don't have to worry about measuring and cutting it.

Why Build Bunkie?

Bunkies gives you the extra space you need on your property without requiring a building permit. Clients have purchased bunkies for many reasons.

You could also turn a bunkie into an Airbnb to earn money, or have a man cave or a she shed or that special place you've always wanted.
