What is a Bunkie?

If you are wondering what a bunkie is, it's actually a separate outbuilding on your property, without a kitchen, where your cottage guests can stay when there isn't enough room in your main cottage. A Custom built bunkie has many great advantages. These include:

No Sacrifices: When you choose to have a bunkie custom built, there's no sacrificing on wants. You get to choose exactly what you want for design, size, and style.

Low Cost: Bunkies are inexpensive to build because they are relatively small and don't include a kitchen, which is one of the most expensive rooms to construct.

Energy Efficient: Bunkies usually have large glass windows that help make them energy efficient as they take advantage of the sun's natural heating powers.
