How Many People Fit In A Sauna?
Wether you are looking for a personal 1-2 seater unit or a large 8-10 seater, we have models for everyone. Refer to the pricing page for more specific details and information.
Are They Meant For Outdoor Use?
Yes they are. While they are primarily designed for outdoor use in the backyard, they work indoors as-well.
What Heaters Do you Use?
We use only Harvia heaters for all of our Saunas. Harvia makes high quality heaters that are designed and built in Finland. We offer both electric and wood stove options. All electric heaters run on 220/240V connections and vary in amperage and kilowatts. We also sell saunas without heaters should you already have a heater or prefer another heating style.
*We do not offer infrared heating*
What Size Sauna Do You Build?
We build many. Our five main saunas include the barrel 6' , 8' , and 10' as well as our rectangular (7' x 7') models in either 8' or 10' and their respective variations. Refer to the pricing page for detailed descriptions.
Can I Pour Water Over The Stones On The Heater?
Absolutely! All our Saunas are designed to be used both as dry or steam Saunas. To steam the Sauna simply pour water over the rocks. Be sure to follow the heater manufacturers instructions before doing so.
- Tip: To get a great smell in your Sauna besides the natural cedar aroma, try adding eucalyptus, pine, or other essential oils to the water.
How Long Does It Take To Heat Up?
Generally 15-20 minutes. This will vary depending on the heat source, size of Sauna, outdoor temperature, and if the unit has extra windows or not.
- Tip: If you are using a wood stove, burn Douglas fir, cherry, or apple wood for the best burns.
Where Are They Built?
All of our barrel saunas are hand built in the Okanagan Valley. By building our saunas locally, we have greater control over the quality of materials used and the construction process, allowing us to ensure that every sauna we build meets our high standards for quality and durability.
Are They Water Proof?
Saunas with metal roofing are guaranteed waterproof. Saunas without will shed most of the water but leakage may occur if not under cover.
Do You Deliver And Assemble Onsite?
Yes we do! Delivery and assembly is available from Penticton to Armstrong. If you live outside this region check with us to see if delivery to your location is offered. Otherwise pick up and self-assembly is also available.
Is There A warranty?
The heater comes with a 1 year manufactures warranty. If you purchase roofing with the sauna and we assemble it for you, the roof comes with a 1 year warranty. We do not accept returns on any saunas, though we are here to help with any questions and support needed.
Is There Financing?
Yes there is! Get in contact with us to get approved for financing.

How Long Will They Last?
Our cedar barrel Saunas are built to last for many decades due to their high-quality materials and construction. We use Canadian western red cedar, which is naturally resistant to rot and decay.
