What Tools Do I Need to Build a Bunkie?

This is a common question. In this video I describe the tools you need to build a bunkie from a Bunkie Life Bunkie Kit.

0.08  Measuring Tape: This is helpful when you’re getting started. The logs in the Bunkie Kit are pre-measured and pre-cut, but the measuring tape will help you confirm the size.

0.28  Hammer: To knock the tongue and groove logs into place.

0.39  Sledgehammer: A heavier tool is nice to have on hand to also hammer logs down.

0.49  Level: The longer the better if possible to help get your foundation level and ready for the build. It is also helpful during the build.

1:15  Cordless Drill: Useful for floorboards and roof boards.

1:40  For More Advanced Users: Small Compressor and Nail Gun: To install floorboards and roof boards.

**You can use a hammer for the floorboards and roof boards too! It just might take you a little longer.

2:10  Other People: We recommend asking people to help you build your bunkie. It’s fun and the more hands, the easier it is.

2:20  Ladders: Get one for sure, and four if you are able to. Consider asking your neighbours to borrow a ladder.

3:00  Saw: You may need one for the trim, just to finish it off.

In summary, there are only a small handful of tools required to build a bunkie from most of the Bunkie Life Bunkie Kits. For the tallest Loft model at 15.5′ (186″) some people rent scaffolding if they are putting the roof on themselves.
