Sauna Room

Sauna Room Construction

Sauna room construction used to be considered as very complicated in the past and only experienced workers were known to be able to build them successfully. Nowadays however, things are somewhat different. It used to be that sauna rooms were considered to be just for the rich population due to the installation costs and the initial cost of the saunas. Today, there are numerous different ways of enjoying a sauna room in your home. There are mini or portable sauna rooms, which are very affordable and do not require any extra space in the house for instance. Besides these, there are two more ways in which people can enjoy the benefits of a sauna room without having to invest a lot of money into building a sauna room.

Sauna Room Construction – Prefabricated Kits

Sauna room construction has never been easier and quicker than in recent times as people can now find prefabricated sauna kits that cost a lot less money than building a sauna room by hiring a contractor. Instead of doing this, even people with little or no experience in DIY can build a sauna room in their home without any help from professionals. Modern prefabricated sauna room building kits contain literally everything people need to build a sauna room, including detailed instructions on how and when to do what. Using these simple to follow instructions, people can build their own sauna room quickly and easily, and at an affordable price. More and more people all around the world and in the UK are deciding on buying these prefabricated sauna room building kits because of their obvious advantages over the traditional way of hiring a contractor to build a sauna room for them.

Sauna Room Construction – DIY Sauna Room Construction

The second type of sauna room construction is by doing it yourself and building a sauna room from scratch. Although many people think that this is almost impossible to do, the truth is that it is not at all difficult. Naturally, it does take more experience and more skill than building a sauna room from a prefabricated kit, but a DIY project will always be more cost efficient and more fun. Also, it is a fact that people tend to enjoy the things they make more than the things someone else builds for them, and sauna rooms are no exception. Here are the simple steps to follow in order for the DIY sauna room project to be successful:

  • Planning and building the base – depending on whether you want to sit or lie in the sauna and on whether the sauna will be in an existing or a new space, you will need to plan its size and build a frame made out of wood, preferably cedar, aspen or redwood. The frame should be sound and not taller than 2 metres.
  • Insulation – insulation is the most important thing in building a sauna, so it has to be insulated both from the inside and outside.
  • Heat panels – install heat panels and a thermostat inside of the sauna.
  • The door – lastly, the door to the sauna should never be airtight, because there should always be some space for ventilation.
