Bunkie: Prefab Cabins Using Joinery


SUMMER OF SCI-FI: 2019! – www.MILANO411.com

Discover the CANADIAN design of “joinery.” This is the house of the future. Buy some land. Then buy 2 of these units and connect. Put the kitchen in the 1st unit and then a wall. You have your own compound. Perfect for people who want their own world or even are into “nude sunbathing.” Get a bigger plot and put an outside gym and workout naked! We dream big at MILANO411.com.


Furniture designer Evan Bare wanted to create a cabin that could be built like a piece of furniture. Architectural designer Nathan Buhler had a design for a “bunkie” (the name for a small sleeping cabin in part of Ontario, Canada) that was radical in its use of all glass for two of the walls.

Bare came up with a plan to use joinery techniques he’d developed for furniture design to create a flat-pack, prefab cabin whose CNC-cut plywood pieces can be assembled with simple tools and practical step-by-step instructions. The Bunkie Company cabins can be put together by anyone with some construction experience, though Bare says most clients prefer the turn-key option.
