There are four typical styles of sauna room: Panel Built, Standard Cut, Custom Cut, and Barrel Saunas.
A panel-built sauna room comes with the walls and ceiling pre-constructed and ready for installation. This type of sauna goes together like a jigsaw puzzle with each section connecting to the next. This is the easiest sauna to build and comes with the added benefit of mobility as it can be taken apart and moved if needed.
A standard-cut sauna room is a package that includes everything needed to create a sauna room using your home's framework. These packages come in standard sizes which will require some custom modification to fit into your room. These packages typically include everything needed to complete your sauna room project.
A custom-cut sauna room is a custom-created package that is "pre-cut" to fit the exact size of your desired sauna room. This type of sauna is a nice way of saving time and energy by not having to measure and cut each board for your sauna room.
A barrel sauna is a popular way to enjoy the benefits of an outdoor sauna on your own property. A barrel sauna is a round barrel shape that houses the sauna benches and sauna heater. A barrel sauna can be installed anywhere on your property with a level surface and good drainage. This is a project that can be accomplished by most homeowners in a day or two.
Each type of sauna has unique benefits which can ease the construction of your perfect sauna room. There are also cost benefits between the different types of sauna rooms. A good understanding of where you will construct your sauna room and how you will be using your sauna room will help determine the best type of sauna room for your needs.
