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:
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.
FRONT WALL ASSEMBLY:
Once all wall parts are together, simply screw them with supplied hex screws.
BACK WALL ASSEMBLY:
It is very similar to front wall except that there’s one more extra detail.
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)
That’s all there’s to it. Any questions, please contact us for more information.
This standard Ukko Cedar log sauna was picked up from our factory in Sussex Inlet for delivery to regional NSW.
As a standard it comes with clear glass door in Cedar frame incl. Cedar handles, stainless steel hinges and roller catch.
We’ve put there 3.5kW Harvia heater with built-in controls and rocks:
Inside sauna has one wider (490mm) upper bench and one narrower (390mm) lower bench:
And of course, the sauna has all standard accessories:

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.
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:
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 front and back walls in to the staves grooves:
Use level to ensure front and back walls are properly leveled:
Continue with staves until sauna is fully done:
Screw every second stave on to the walls to fix them during installation. (Before placing rings, you remove screws):
Place stainless steel rings and tighten them with supplied rods and couplings:
Mount sauna door to the door jamb:
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.

Here are step by step instructions on how log sauna is assembled:
Put together sauna base frame by screwing supplied angle brackets in to the frame set boards:
Assemble walls with supplied wall structural timbers and screws:
Repeat the process for all sauna walls.
Now it is time to put all the walls together:
Once all the walls and door jamb frame attached you should have your main sauna structure look like this:
Mount top frame set (similar to sauna base frame set from step 1 except there’s no angle brackets) on top of the sauna and screw them with supplied screws to the walls:
Hang the door. In this case traditional door was ordered (standard door is glass door in Cedar frame):
Attach T&G ceiling panels to the top frame set with supplied hex screws:
Now that the main structure is done, install bench supports and place sauna benches on top:
Attach sauna top trims or roof package to finish installation. In this case customer ordered flat under slight angle roof frame to put fiber glass roofing sheets on site:
Hang heater & light fitting, mount heater guard rail and place floor duckboard and your sauna is done:
