We are finally started to put together our Cedar log sauna for display. It’s winter and we are missing our hot rock sauna sessions after hard work.

The sauna we are making now is one of our standard size – 1986 x 1686 x 2005mm using solid one section walls out of our popular 130 x 38mm V-shape Cedar panels.

This time we’ve decided to make a base and a floor for this sauna:

Sauna floor base

Sauna floor base made out of treated construction pine

Sauna floor is in

Cedar floor boards are in and the base sauna frame attached.. ready to install the walls & door frame

We’ve cut all structural timbers to size (corners, wall frames and connecting strips) including wall panels so we can start the actual sauna assembly:

Sauna walls

Most of the walls are done and door frame is in

Our choice is always – traditional sauna door – to keep the heat and get the sauna run 100 plus degrees Celsius!

We hung the door and attached handles:

Last wall is done and the door is hung

Well, the sauna is not quite finished yet as we are busy with few barrel and log saunas that are scheduled to be test fitted now but managed to finish the door by inserting roller catch.

Oh, and almost forgot – we also mounted bench supports (hopefully soon will make the benches):

Main log sauna structure

The main sauna structure is ready

There are still few little things we want to finish like put Cedar lining to cover green timbers on the base and to move it more towards the wall.

Obviously, next step would be to put benches in, assemble ceiling and roof pack on top (it is a display sauna), put together heater guard rail and get sparky to connect everything to our factory mains…

We’ll keep you posted how we are going.

You are welcome to visit now and when it’s done even try it out

(Please don’t forget your swimmers and the towel)
