Ukko 2.7m barrel sauna
2.7m Ukko Barrel sauna with front seat & overhang
It was one of these winter days when the sun was shining, the air was warm and we enjoyed our trip to Woongarrah in Central coast. The sauna that we were bringing to install was 2.7m long barrel with overhang and front seat, wood fired heater and LED lights. Our new design to make it easier to deliver made it possible to put all the parts and long 2.7m staves in our Toyota HiAce without using roof wrecks. This is how to assemble both back and front walls of your Ukko barrel sauna when supplied flat pack:
Two parts of sauna back wall
Barrel sauna back wall in two halves
Take two halves of the supplied back wall and connect them together:

Now all you have to do is to screw two supporting planks in to the back wall:
