Isabelle and I couldn’t have asked for more. It absolutely beautiful and unique. You did a great job… Thank you so much! – wrote Gerald in his sms text 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: Next mount pre-assembled back and front walls… 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!
This traditional hot rock barrel sauna was installed yesterday in Southern Sydney by Ukko Saunas production team. It is 2.1m long to allow its owners, Gerald and Isabelle, to fully lay down and relax during the sauna session. It features 2 full length benches on the sides of the barrel and a big window at the back for a pleasant viewing: This particular model comes with 6.0kW electric stainless steel hot rock sauna heater and rocks. Controls of the stove are mounted in front to make it easier for owners to setup time and temperature:
