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 bought a piece of land in the Kawartha Highlands and had originally planned to build a cabin. Realizing how difficult and expensive that would be, we got a bunkie instead. With the help of two friends, we built it over the Canada day long weekend. The biggest effort was getting 12 cinder blocks level. After that, it was plain sailing.
We’ve since built an outhouse, installed a sink and shelves. Now we have the bunkie I really don’t feel any need for a larger cabin. We love it. We put it under the trees to keep it cool from the sun. It’s the best thing I ever did. We’re planning to buy one more and rent it out on Airbnb so other people can enjoy the beauty of this area too.

“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.”

“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!”

Bunkies give you a place to escape and the extra space you need on your property to do whatever you wantwithout the hassle of getting a building permit.
