We are placing these Instructions on our site to help you in making up your mind as to which type of Sauna you may wish to order. They will help you in understanding the process of framing out your walls before you order or after you oder a Custom-Cut Sauna from us. This basic process would apply for many of our other Saunas that would require some type of framing and finish work on your part. Please remember this is here for your benefit and may or may not be what you would have to do in every case. As always contact our representitves if you have any questions at all, or read the Questions and Answers on our FAQ page.
These instructions were written for contractors and do-it yourselfers who are constructing their own saunas. Much of the installation is performed with basic construction practices. However, these tips should help make the process easier and help to ensure your sauna is proressionally installed for optimum enjoyment.
A. Materials that are NOT furnished include: framing, insulation and exterior finish. (unless specified)
B. All electrical work should be completed by a licensed electrician.
C. All plumbing work when a drain is called for should be done my a licensed Plumbers
D. Study all the instructions prior to installation.
NOTE: Each lumber bundle is marked as to the order of installation. Minor trimming may be needed to Jit job conditions.
Your sauna can be placed on concrete, tile, linoleum, or any surface that does not absorb water. Do not install the sauna on carpeting, we repent, never install a Sauna over Carpeting. Ask us about installing over a wood flooding.
Hammer or pin nailer
Handsaw and mitre box (for molding installation)
Drill or cordless screwdriver
3/8" wood bit (if sauna room has an L-bench)
Note: Torx bit is provided
HINT: We recommend the use of a pneumatic pin nailer for installing the tongue and groove (T&G) boards. This will save more than 50% of labor time and will allow for easier blind nailing. Use 1-1/4 " to 1-1/2 " galvanized pin nails.
