For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Bunkhouse.
Bunkhouses are space saving shelters for the Tropicans on their way up the social ladder.
- Normal Maintenance: Maintains respectable living conditions.
- Roach Patrol: The housing quality is lowered by 30%, making it less attractive to live in.
Upon completion, these come with a few décor items; a tire stack and boxes. As time passes, they may accumulate clothes-lines, trash and/or a trash-can(rear side). Visually, they are akin to cheap motels with ~120 sq. ft. of living space for each household. Not something one wants to raise a family in but sufficient for temporary shelter.
- "This building has the looks and the living conditions of a barn. Cheap, quick to build and superior to the shacks, these Bunkhouses are still no alternative to decent housing."
