Bunkie Kits Ontario

Do you need extra space? A bunkie kit is an easier way to build a cottage bunkie, backyard bunkie, art 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 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.

WIDE RANGE OF USES

Cabin bunkies are the best way to give you extra space at your cottage or in your backyard.

You can have extra sleeping space for family or friends at the cottage, a private getaway to enjoy your favourite area on your property or an art studio.

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

Or use it as a getaway for your 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 do not require a building permit. The main space and loft fit can fit a queen size bed. All the wood is precut and sized in the cabin kit so you don't have to worry about measuring and cutting it.

What Do You Use it For?

Since four people can sleep in the bunkie, clients have purchased our bunkies for many reasons. You can build extra space at the cottage, an escape in the woods, a perfect view of the lake, a place for creating art, a playhouse for younger kids or private space for older kids.

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, art studio or special place you've always wanted.

Why buy a Bunkie kit?

A bunkie kit 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.
