Sue spotted my post on The Shed Option, and commented with a link to her own shed-based bunkhouse. The whole project cost them about $12,000 to complete. Here’s what she said:
“We bought a 10 x 16 cedar sided “shed” type shell building that we finished as a “bunkhouse”. We live in a small 464 sq ft cabin built on site by the same company that built the shed and brought it out. We finished it, doing all the work ourselves except for the electrical rough-in and the plumbing, which included hooking to our septic system. We just added a 5 x 16 deck to the bunkhouse. Total cost for the project was right at $12,000. No permits or inspections were required for our area and we are in a warm climate. The wall AC unit also has heat.” – Sue
Their bunkhouse looks nothing like a pre-built shed to me – very nicely done! The addition of the porch looks great too. Kudos to Sue and her family – and thanks for sharing your project with us!
This little cabin and deck is really nice looking and seems very cozy, but seems VERY expensive considering they had to do the finish work also. I bought my entire 8 x 24′ tiny home for just under 10K in Nov of 2010. It came with a 6×8’covered deck, 2 carpeted sleeping lofts, a bathroom, toilet, bathroom sink, shower, kitchen sink, upper and lower kitchen cabinets, 4 burner stove, apt size frig, a ladder, book shelf, closets, heat and air conditioning. I later decided to add some upgrades which cost me more than the original price. Today one can buy the same tiny house described above with all the amenities included for 16K.
