Cottage Bunkie

This started as a design project. My in-laws cottage bunkie (where we often stay) was in need of some love, so I created a custom style guide. The goal was to improve the functionality, adding sleeping space while also creating an aesthetic that is rustic, cozy and airy.

Once the design was complete, we decided I would take this on as a solo DIY.

  • Creating shiplap out of plywood to save costs

  • Re-framing the ceiling for a symmetrical roof line

  • Adding vinyl flooring

  • Building a custom bunk bed with stairs

  • Finishing the space with lighting, storage & decor solutions that bring the design concept to life.

After one week of work, it was transformed! I'm quite sure this will be a space that our family enjoys for many years to come! Check out the bunkie highlights on my Instagram Page for more

behind the scenes.
