Ukko Standard Barrel Sauna
1.8m length Ukko Barrel Sauna with traditional sauna door
Despite heavy rain and strong wind, our installation team managed to put together another round sauna in Southern Sydney. This sauna was supplied with traditional Cedar door for better sauna experience.
Just a quick note to thank you and your team, the lads did a magnificent job in very trying adverse weather conditions.  They should be complemented, for not only their work but also for their professionalism, it was outstanding…
“The unit looks fantastic, such a wonderfully unique shape makes the sauna an artistic sculpture that will be the centre piece of our garden as well as providing practical health benefits for the family. Many thanks to you and your team.” – wrote Tanya and Gary E. in their follow up email after sauna installation.

Many people have asked how difficult it is to install so we decided to put few pictures from the actual barrel sauna installation… First step is to mount the sauna base on the floor and lay few staves to cover the curve:
Sauna base with bottom staves

Next mount pre-assembled back and front walls…

Ideally this should look something like this…
Once both walls are in position, simply continue with the rest of the staves so the end result will be similar to this:

Once all this is done, put stainless steel bands and tighten them up to finish barrel installation:

Then mount bench supports to your liking height and put benches inside the sauna:

Don’t forget to get “sparky” to wire your sauna heater and lights. That’s it to it. Enjoy your sauna!
