Father and Son Build Heated Tiny Bunk House Cabin for $160!

This is the story of a father/son duo who built their own heated tiny bunk house cabin for only $160 in materials!

The reason they were able to do it for so little money is that they have their own portable sawmill on the property so they are able to harvest their own wood. On top of that, they used reclaimed materials for their windows, door, furniture, furnace, and other items.


They built this little bunk cabin to house their tools (and themselves) while they build a larger log cabin on the property. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!

    Was great to watch the build. Your a good narrator to listen to. It’s good to have a Dad to help you along the way. Dads do have some extra wisdom for us. Did you have any problems with sparks on your plastic roof? Thanks for sharing this video with us 🙂

    How clever to seal the exterior with plastic before putting up the wood. It’s also cool that you have all that light through the roof without having the rain. Lol! Looks sufficient and comfortable. Enjoy!

    You are sooo right on that! I deal with homeless animals everyday, they would probably love it too!
