1. How do I know if I can build a Funky Bunky on my property?
That’s EASY- invite me over for a visit! Scheduling our FREE consultation kicks off the process for your project and covers discussion about the purpose of your space, design, and logistics/ zoning.
Simply get in touch with Jess at firstname.lastname@example.org and the process from your end is simple! We will discuss the function and approximate size of Bunky you are looking for and then have you agree to allow Jessica to act as an agent on your behalf as she works with your local Municipality to see what guidelines we must follow to build your Bunky. Although each Municipality is unique, we can almost always come up with a design to satisfy both parties.
Once we have approval from your local municipality, you're ready to move forward with the build!
2. Are mobile Bunky designs available?
Contrary to what we see trending on our favourite home and garden shows and pinterest boards, current Municipal Zoning By-Laws in Ontario prohibit the building of structures on trailer beds, or the use of tiny homes on trailers as dwellings.
3. How much will my Funky Bunky consultation cost?
Funky Bunkies offers custom and detailed tiny space design and project planning. Each project cost is different, but the fee includes detailed 3D design, Architectural drawings and permit costs. Jessica can also be hired at an hourly rate to project manage your build, working alongside your builder.
*Note: When working with your builder, Bunkies typically run between $200-$300/square foot (where you fall in this range depends on seasonality, plumbing needs, and choice of finishes)
4. Are there incentive programs for rental units?
