Ukko Cedar Barrel Sauna

Ukko Cedar Barrel Sauna

Last week our team traveled to Koonwarra in Victoria to install Cedar custom made barrel sauna. This sauna was custom designed with overall length of 3m and 2.1m in diameter.

Sauna Support

Solid cradle system made from treated pine provides strong support for the sauna.

Extra exterior sitting area (little porch) with seats was designed upon customer request so that bathers can relax after sauna session. For the best sauna experience, we’ve made traditional sauna door with the small window and roller catch.

Ukko 6 person tub with all extras

Ukko 6 person tub with all extras

This 6 person Cedar hot tub was installed with custom made stairs, shelves, skirting and equipment enclosure. It took us two evenings to put it together on site with beautiful bay and marina views. Rain showers forced us to put a tarp above so we could do the job without nature interference.

The tub came with 3.5kW heater, 6 jets, 2HP pump, filtration, electronic sanitazation, cover and chemical stater pack.

This is a great example of Ukko tub stand alone installation. If you are thinking to install one of these Cedar tubs in your home, please give us a call or send an email and we will help you to chose best possible design, size and model.
