Id go with adjustable brackets. Probably need 8 brackets so you will have two bunks per side of the keel. Something like this maybe but youll want to make sure they are tall enough to work on your application. http://boattrailerpartsplace.com/bunk-b ... 1=1&back=1

Then youll just need lumber for the bunks themselves and bunk carpet.

Make a few patterns and use them to figure out bunk placement.

I know what you mean we have in what the locals call the back yard police they will charge 150.00 if they feel your grass is to long stuff like this is the new red tape I am going through I never would have bought in this city if I had known :roll: :(
Don't be afraid to attempt anything. You might surprise your self in the attempt.
