Around the world, and particularly in Scandinavian countries, saunas have been used for thousands of years for their social and therapeutic benefits.
Every Redwood Outdoors barrel sauna kit comes complete with either an electric heater or wood burning stove, wooden heater guard, water bucket & ladle, sauna rocks, a combination thermometer/hydrometer gauge, and interior seating benches. Our saunas will heat up to 195 F in under an hour, and can be enjoyed either wet or dry, catering to a true Scandinavian sauna experience.
All our cedar barrel saunas use 100% Canadian Red Cedar. We select the highest quality cedar for its proven resistance to weather and the elements. Cedar is the best choice of lumber for maximizing outdoor lifespan. With proper care and maintenance your cedar sauna should last 15-20 years.
The Scandinavian barrel sauna has a classic beauty in its elegant simplicity. Our barrel saunas are constructed with tongue and groove lumber staves that are held tightly together by stainless steel bands and fasteners. This interlocking system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract naturally, and to form a tight seal. The sauna unit sits on support cradles (included) that keep the sauna’s underside above the ground. Not only are our Scandinavian barrel sauna lovely to look at, their design is incredibly energy efficient and helps to distribute the heat evenly throughout the interior.
This version of our barrel sauna features a stylish covered front porch with two seats, cup holders and a towel rack. The front porch is perfect for relaxing and cooling off between sauna rounds.
Our sauna kit includes a wooden head rest, cradle and back rest so you can get comfortable. Sit on benches and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones in a sauna room filled with soft lighting and enjoy the aromatic scents of cedar. Our saunas give bathers a truly authentic and relaxing Scandinavian sauna experience.

WOOD-BURNING STOVE OPTION FOR OFF-GRID CUSTOMERS
Classic wood-burning saunas are very special. The crackling fire, warm steam from the rocks and the ritual of tending the fire all combine to create a timeless and unforgettable experience. The Harvia M3 is a compact wood burning stove which is perfect for our saunas. Installation of the chimney kit requires cutting a circular hole in the roof staves. This could be performed by a carpenter or a more experienced DIY customer. Please note that our chimney kit is sold separately. If you prefer, chimney pipe and stove accessories can be sourced independently. If you are sourcing yourself, you will need 6ft of 6" diameter stove piping, interior protective flashing, a chimney collar and an external rain flange. Also note that the M3 wood stove is larger than the electric heaters and reduces the seating capacity of the sauna.
Putting together the our sauna kits is easy! All our saunas are designed with the DIY customer in mind. All the pieces are pre-cut and grooved, so no sawing or cutting is required.
Anyone with novice woodworking skills could build one in approximately 4 hours. All the assembler will need is a level, Phillips screwdriver, 7/16″ and 9/16″ open end wrenches, 9/16″ deep socket wrench, vise grips, and a mallet.
We ship our saunas to everywhere in the United States to sauna enthusiasts who enjoy the wellness benefits of heat and steam!
Please note that our design team is always working to improve the quality and usability of our saunas. As a result, small details (e.g., type of accessories, bench slat quantity, direction of wall boards, door handle style, etc.) may differ slightly from the unit pictured above.
