About Bunkie Life
We purchased our first bunkie in 2015 so we could have a 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 my Mom encouraged us to find something to build on our property.
I searched 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 kit and my Dad and I built our bunkie in one weekend. I love it so much that I now own four. I starting renting out the bunkies on Airbnb as a getaway from the city. They are now booked almost every night, year-round.
We know what features are important in a bunkie and we offer cabin bunkie kits for the most reasonable price. View all the bunkie models that don’t require a building permit. We are now offering custom bunkies.
We also give you a lot of advice to help you build your bunkie. We want you to enjoy having the extra space on your property just like we do.

“We built ours in May, and we couldn’t be happier. My daughter finally has her own bedroom and writing space. We even recently added a solar panel and battery to allow for some ridgeline LED lighting for her. she sleeps upstairs and has an extra bed for friends on the main level.”
Mark Jeremiah, Carleton Place, ON
“The family and I use our bunkie for our little get away back on our “island”. It is surrounded by marsh land and lots of deer. We have been sleeping there almost every night since I finished it. I have also used it for extra sleeping space for the boys weekend and when the in laws were up. We absolutely love it!”
