How to assemble Ukko Cedar Barrel Sauna

Barrel Sauna Assembly

We’ve just finished test fit of our 2.1m long Cedar barrel sauna. While we were test fitting this sauna, we thought to make few pictures and show you how you can assemble it yourself.

2.1m long at 1.82m diameter Ukko Cedar Barrel sauna
This sauna features traditional sauna door with square window, bitumen shingles for outdoor installation (if there’s no pergola to cover the sauna) and sauna air humidifier with Eucalyptus oil. We did not put rings (you can see them near the shingles) but they need to be installed and tightened when putting this sauna on site.

Here’s how to assemble Ukko Cedar barrel sauna:

Step 1

Place sauna base staves on to the supplied cradle. Fix one stave only at this stage to the cradle with supplied hex screws (we pre-drill holes. You can’t miss it):

Place base staves (marked from B1…) on to the cradle and screw one stave down

Step 2

Place front and back walls in to the staves grooves:

Step 3

Continue with staves until sauna is fully done:
Continue placing staves 1
Go one half of the barrel on one side first
 
Continue placing staves 2
Then go to the other half of the sauna
Screw every second stave on to the walls to fix them during installation. (Before placing rings, you remove screws):
Continue with placing staves 3
Putting screws in to the staves to secure them until rings are in place
 
Staves are in place
All staves are in place (use rubber mallet to ensure tight fit)

Step 4

Place stainless steel rings and tighten them with supplied rods and couplings:

Use ring protective strip (or tape measure) to get 50mm from the edge of the staves on both sides

Step 5

Mount sauna door to the door jamb:

Screw sauna door hinges to the door jamb

Step 6

Install bench supports and place benches on top of them (you can choose the best possible height for you). We normally put one bench lower for sitting and one upper for laying down (it will be hotter there). Mount sauna heater with guard rail, put sauna light fitting (under one of the benches) and place floor duckboard:

Well, that’s pretty much it. All you need now is a licensed electrician to hook the heater to your mains and connect sauna light fitting with an on/off switch (on/off switch must be somewhere outside of the sauna). Once all is connected you can start enjoying your sauna.
