    Ukko Larch Barrel back wall
    This is sauna back wall in case you were wondering..
    Larch is much stronger and heavier timber so we had to put extra two planks to support back wall better. The planks on the cradle will go off. They are there just to support cradle until sauna is fully installed. Want to know more? Please call us on:

    Ukko Cedar Barrel Sauna
    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).
    Ukko traditional sauna door
    Traditional sauna door is mounted to the door jamb..
    As always, all our saunas are fitted with two benches along sauna walls:

    1.8m dia at 1.8m length Ukko Cedar barrel sauna
    We just finished refurbishing our 1.8m long Cedar barrel sauna. This sauna was used by us in Sydney before moving to Sussex Inlet. In case you are wondering how we deliver it – simple, we flat pack it on to a made pallet for courier pickup this week:

    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
