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 :).

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).

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

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.


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.


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. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save

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):
Sauna Cradle
Barrel Sauna Cradle
Barrel Sauna base staves
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:

Use level to ensure front and back walls are properly leveled:

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:
Placing barrel sauna rings
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:

Installing sauna benches
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.
