About Bunkie Life

We built our first bunkie in 2015 so we could have space for our parents to stay overnight and visit their grandchildren.

Our house wasn’t large enough for everyone, and my Mom was tired of sleeping on the couch, so she encouraged us to build something on our property.

I searched on the internet for a solution. I wanted to find something that was relatively easy to build and a reasonable price. Plus I didn’t want the hassle of getting a building permit.

Then I discovered a solution, bunkies you can build from a kit.

We ordered a bunkie and my Dad and I built our bunkie in one weekend. I loved it so much that we built 4 more. I starting renting out the bunkies on Airbnb as a getaway from the city. They were booked almost every night, year-round (currently on pause due to COVID-19).

We know what features are important in a bunkie and we offer bunkie kits for the most reasonable price. View all our bunkie models or a gallery of bunkies.

We love to give helpful advice on how to build your bunkie. We want you to enjoy having the extra space on your property for meaningful connection and quality time, just like us.

Why our clients choose Bunkie Life

Why We Do This

We want to provide an opportunity for families all over Canada to have a place to unite, unwind and unplug. A bunkie gives extra space on your property or at the cottage for meaningful connection with your family or friends.

Our National Partners

We believe in giving back. We donate one night’s stay at Ronald McDonald House Canada every time we build a bunkie. We support Ronald McDonald House because they provide an important place for families to stay together while their seriously ill child is being treated in hospital.

In 2020, we raised $37,000+ for RHMC, from every bunkie built, proceeds from the Bunkie Life book and Connection Cards, and donations from the wonderful Bunkie Life community #bunkielifegives

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for Ronald McDonald House Canada in 2021. When you purchase a bunkie, we will donate one more night for a family to stay at RMHC Canada.

We also work with Make-a-Wish Canada to help families. Make-a-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

In 2020 we assisted in making a wish happen for Ethan, who was diagnosed with a very rare cancer. He wanted a bunkie from Bunkie Life with all the add-ons. His dream was to have his own bunkie to play video games in. Many wonderful people came together to make his dream come true. 

Bunkie Life Reviews

We’re famous for bunkies but what matters most is our bunkie clients. “Great price, great quality, great customer service!” We hope the bunkie helps you create extra space for more meaningful connections for years to come.

Awesome team, great product, exceptional customer service. Both times I called for clarification or advice while building, the owner himself answered and took the time to explain everything as well as follow up with email links to videos and further drawings. Super nice people who really stand behind their product and WANT to hear from you. They also follow up to make sure you are loving your bunkie after the build and ask if you have suggestions for improvement or other preferences. It's also great seeing what other customers have done and get further inspiration for your own build. Wonderful down-to-earth, community vibe! Loving my bunkies!

We purchased the 2019 loft bunkie for additional sleeping space at our cottage on the lake. David was nice enough to spend an hour with us, touring the models he had available on-site. Honestly the delivered product exceeded all my expectations. The wood was straight, clear and and planed absolutely true and smooth. All the milling was perfect and the bunkie went up exactly as the instructions pointed out. Perfect joints, perfect fit, and extremely easy to assemble. I wouldn't change a thing, and would have absolute confidence in recommending this product to the Queen of England! Congratulations David on an exceptional product and company.

It was an excellent build. Easy to put together. It only took us five days to complete our bunkie. From the base to the roof to the stain. Looking forward to sharing photos in your album.

I was very impressed with the Bunkie package! It went together pretty easily, all done in a weekend by three handy guys but non professionals. Looks great completed. The windows and doors are good quality and the extra space of the loft was the best feature. Very happy!

I bought the 2019 Bunkie model a few months ago to put on land that I purchased in St Eugene Ontario. David and Karrie were wonderful to deal with. After looking at many sites and plenty of tiny house videos I came across YouTube videos from Bunkie Life I decided to drive to see the different models... Also, I was apprehensive about buying something Online without seeing it live first. The videos show well but the actual real thing is beautiful! I just finished the exterior and roof last week. I did get help from a friend who teaches carpentry and he was impressed with the quality of the kit! This thing is SOLID and the details are stunning. You will be amazed at how big it feels inside for a no permit sized shed. I’m about to finish the interior next week with the installation of a cubic mini wood stove! David “owner of Bunkie Life” got me a 5% discount with Cubic Mini. Great price, great quality, great customer service!

Ordering: We ordered a bunkie during a promotion, so the Bunkie Life folks were a little overwhelmed, but they honoured the discount and got back to me as soon as they could. The process was very straightforward.

Delivery: Our cottage is nearly 500 km away from Bunkie Life, but they offer a delivery service that was really great, and for much less than it would have cost us to arrange ourselves.

Installation: Lots of videos and the instructions were easy to use, considering how complex the project is. And every time we had a question, David was an email or phone call away. He was very responsive, even outside of regular business hours, so we never got held up in our build, waiting for clarification.

Product: The end result is beautiful and exactly as we had imagined! The details are also great - wood windows, nice openings. Overall, would strongly recommend.

The product is excellent and completely suited our needs. My brother-in-law and I built two bunkies (side-by-side) with a storage shed in between for our shared needs.

This is really a great company. David and Karrie are consistently friendly, competent and helpful. They responded quickly and thoroughly whenever we had a question, and were very accommodating. No issues with delivery. The cabin itself is exactly as advertised, and we are very happy with it. Would definitely recommend them and may order again in the future!

If you are even considering a bunkie GO FOR IT!! From ordering to delivery and through installation support Bunkie Life has been exceptional. How many businesses respond to questions on Canada day within minutes? (It shows their commitment to customer support). David stands behind his products and has been very helpful to this bunkie noob. The quality of the wood and product is top shelf. Our work is almost done... memorable moments with friends and family await.
