This little bunk house design is great for the kids or the adults alike. It can be a great playhouse or a hunting camp. The 4’ loft is great for additional storage or for the little ones to have an additional play space or a hideaway for sleepovers. No need to worry about the kids being out in their tents, they will be safe and secure with lots of roof for friends. The 4’ porch out front is great for watching the night sky or planning your next day.
This great little bunk house comes in several sizes: 8×16, 10×16, 12×20, and 12×24. Camp Bunk House plans are available for the 8x, 10x, and the 12×20. Forget all the planning and worrying. Let us take care of the tough stuff. These affordable Bunk House plans include a shopping list for all your lumber and needed materials and tools. No running to the hardware store for last minute things that you forgot, We have thought of it all.
Not sure where to start, Site Preparation info is included. Weather you want a slab, crushed gravel, or even up on piers, these plans will cut down the guesswork. The itemized cut list lets you know how to angle each piece with no guesstimates here!
This Bunk House may be lots of fun, but it is also sturdy with its full dimensional 4×4 post and beam design, it is rated to withstand the howling winds and snowfalls of New England and more. Do you live near the gusting winds of the Atlantic or the Mountain tops of Colorado? Add a little extra with the JCS hurricane kit (purchase on the JCS website).
Each set of plans comes with instructions for one set of bunkbeds. Planning on having more company, double the material list and plenty of room for more. The design comes with instructions for installing three hinged windows. Show off your inner craftsman with the beautiful Bunk House that you created from the JCS plans. Don’t settle for something good, Build yourself something GREAT!
