Home Sauna Design and Installation

There are many ways and reasons to install a home sauna. The sauna is a simple structure, but attention to detail is the key to authenticity, particularly the maintenance of a stable temperature.  The potential is limited only by the skills and ingenuity of the builder. Building it right requires proper design, quality kiln-dried wood materials and components unique to saunas. We can help you plan your traditional steam sauna with detailed sauna plans and designs. You can see some of the saunas we’ve built to get an idea of what we can do for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between wet and dry?
They are the same. When you enter the hot room, and before any water is on the rocks, it is considered dry due to the dry heat. When you generate steam by putting water on the rocks, it is considered wet. Essentially it’s a wet/dry room.
What kind of floor is best for a sauna?
For traditional saunas, the best kind of floor for a sauna is cement, tile or anything that doesn’t absorb water. For infrared saunas, wood or tile is best.
Why are so many different types of wood used for traditional saunas

There are many things to consider when choosing the appropriate wood choice for performance in a given sauna. All the woods used in our saunas have been traditionally used for hundreds of years and have long proven their benefits for sauna use. Wood choice is also largely contingent upon user preference and style. We hand select clear softwoods and complement these choices by matching bench materials which enhance the sauna user’s comfort levels. We determine the most ideal profiles, thickness specifications, framing materials, hardware – and give you a product that is built to perform and to last. Our warranties experience will give you further piece of mind when considering our wood  expertise.

How long does it take for a sauna to heat up?

A traditional sauna generally takes about 30 to 45 minutes to fully heat up. During this time, the rocks will be heated to the right temperature for soft heat and soft steam. With the additional heater, the sauna heat up time is halved. It takes about 10 minutes for an infrared sauna to heat up. After 10 minutes, the air has warmed up a little and it’s running at full power.
