Hopefully, the worst has passed and we are out of the woods. Nevertheless, having a backup plan never hurt anyone. So, to those who are looking forward to temporary, light structures, considering a pre-fabricated getaway would be the perfect backup plan to own a rather adorable Bunkie.

Fold-down Beds and Fold-Out Furniture’s are recommended so that the structure can be easily converted between day and night use. Also include a still-minimal site footprint that creates a decent recreational deck area for comfortable indoor/ outdoor flow and living. This helps to wisely maximize the amount of functionality in the small area.
