The sauna steam room is 8' 4" x 6' 8" and changing room is 3' 10" x 6' 8". Made with 6" x 8" kiln-dried, planed, 3/4" bevelled edge White Pine or Cedar timbers. Square notched corners make for easy assembly, drilled for 1/2" threaded rod to run vertically, securing timbers together at corners. Sits on your prepared concrete slab or leveled site with blocks. Floor joists are part of timber shell, discount available if wood floor is not needed (for example, using concrete slab as floor). Complete sauna building is 21' 8" x 9' 8" with the roof finished.
Pine, Basswood and Aspen will not turn black like cedar and are much better woods for saunas (the white woods are traditional for hundreds of years in Scandinavia and Europe), also they are the most popular woods now. To keep sauna looking like new, simply wipe down and use brush and water frequently. For more info, see "sauna care instructions" and "How to enjoy the sauna".
