And the test fit is done. What’s left is to put the stainless steel rings and tighten them up..

Ukko Larch Barrel back wall

This is sauna back wall in case you were wondering..

Larch is much stronger and heavier timber so we had to put extra two planks to support back wall better.

The planks on the cradle will go off. They are there just to support cradle until sauna is fully installed.

Ukko Cedar Barrel Sauna

Ukko Cedar 2.4m long at 1.8m dia barrel sauna is going to Gold Coast, QLD

It is Saturday but we had to work and finish test fit of our popular Canadian Western Red Cedar barrel sauna.

Maxim, our customer, is coming over tomorrow to pick it up and we had to make sure that it’s all fitted properly :).

Sauna is half way done. Base staves are in. Front and back walls are in too..

The same half way through sauna but from another angle..

Customer ordered traditional sauna door. The reason is that his house does not have enough power for 8kW electric sauna heater and maximum he can go for is only 6.0Kw.

Traditional timber door holds heat much better (a bit of cost but way less than upgrading house power supply).

Traditional sauna door is mounted to the door jamb..

As always, all our saunas are fitted with two benches along sauna walls:

Sauna benches are fitted along with floor duck board and heater guard rail..

Still few staves to go and maybe no need for filler stave:

1.8m dia at 1.8m length Ukko Cedar barrel sauna

We just finished refurbishing our 1.8m long Cedar barrel sauna. This sauna was used by us in Sydney before moving to Sussex Inlet.

In case you are wondering how we deliver it – simple, we flat pack it on to a made pallet for courier pickup this week:

All of the barrel sauna is inside this cute box 🙂

While we were test fitting this sauna for customer in Torquay, VIC, we decided to show you how to assemble front and back wall of our barrels.

FRONT WALL ASSEMBLY:

Barrel front wall assembly

Lay all 3 wall parts and connect them together to make a perfect circle

Once all wall parts are together, simply screw them with supplied hex screws.

BACK WALL ASSEMBLY:

It is very similar to front wall except that there’s one more extra detail.

Step 1 - back wall assembly

Step 1- Lay barrel sauna back wall parts

Step 2 - back wall assembly

Step 2 – Connect all parts together. (You can use rubber mallet)

Step3 - back wall assembly

Step 3 – Screw all parts together with supplied hex screws

Note: In this image all parts are separate. This is just to show you where the parts need to be screwed together. Make sure that all wall components are tight together (the same as front wall)

Step 4 - back wall assembly

Step 4 – Attach back wall support panel where marked and screw it down to the back wall

That’s all there’s to it. Any questions, please contact us for more information.
