Cycle Between High And Low Temperature Without Leaving Your Sauna With Two-Level Seating
In Finland, the rule for a truly deep sauna bath is that your feet should be above the heater. We've designed this sauna so you can do just that. Sit on the top bench and get your whole body into the hottest part of the sauna to take your sweat to the next level! Once you're ready for a break, move the lower benches to cool down. Cycle between the top and bottom bench to natually adjust your temperature without having to adjust your heater, making for an epic sauna session.
Thermowood is created by heat treating Scandinavian softwood to temperatures ranging from 180 – 230° in special chamber kilns for up to 96 hours. Steam is used as a protective gas and helps to prevent the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment.

Thermowood’s Characteristics & Qualities
This process causes chemical and structural changes to occur within the timber, which therefore alters some of its characteristics and qualities. Some of the characteristics and qualities that make Thermowood such a popular specie includes:
Dimensionally Stable – The intensive heat the wood is exposed to during its production dries out deep into the core, causing all moisture and resin to be removed from the timber. Thermowood therefore doesn’t react to changes in humidity as drastically as untreated wood (the risk of swelling, cracking and shrinkage is decreased), allowing it to retain its shape far better. The wood also doesn’t secrete sap or resin even in high temperatures.
Environemntally Friendly – The softwood used to produce Thermowood originates from well-managed, PEFC-certified forests, and as no chemicals or foreign substances are involved during its production, Thermowood is an environmentally friendly material produced by using only natural methods.
Resistance to Rot and Fungi – Due to the heating process breaking down hemicellulose, the wood doesn’t contain the appropriate nutrients to allow rot and fungi to grow and develop.
Increased Longevity – When wood is treated with heat, its average life span is prolonged meaning your sauna will last a lifetime!
Improved Insulation – Wood that has been heat treated is much more porous than untreated wood, vastly improving its insulating properties.
Traditional Scandinavian Design
The Scandinavian cabin sauna has a classic beauty in its elegant simplicity. Our cabin saunas are constructed with interlocking lumber that fit together forming a strong exterior. This interlocking system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract naturally, and to form a tight seal. Not only are our cabin saunas lovely to look at, their design is incredibly energy efficient and helps to distribute the heat evenly throughout the interior.
Harvia Sauna Heater, Made In Finland
Harvia is the world’s leading sauna heater manufacturer and Harvia heaters are considered the industry gold-standard. Harvia is was established in Finland in 1950 and has built an international reputation for exceptional quality. With a Harvia heater, you know you are getting a reliable product that you and your family can trust. All our Harvia sauna heaters are ETL certified and are manufactured in Finland.
Manual Control or Wi-Fi Control Heater Options
Our manual control heaters have two dials: a temperature dial and a timer. The timer can be set for up to an 8-hour delay, meaning you set your heater to come on while you are out and your sauna will be ready when you get home.
Our digital Wi-Fi heaters can be controlled via the digital wall pad mounted nearby your sauna, or from any smartphone or tablet. The big convenience of the Wi-Fi control is the remote start capability which allows you to pre-heat your sauna from anywhere—whether at the office or on the slopes. With few taps on your phone, your sauna will be ready when you get home. Wi-Fi heaters can also be pre-set to come on at a specific time of day, such as early in the morning.
Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade a manual control heater to a digital Wi-Fi system in the future. While the manual and digital heaters look very similar, they are in fact totally different heaters. This means you must select the control system you are going with at the outset.
Easy Self Assembly
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 LOVE our sauna, it's truly been life changing. Having the ability to hop in there at the end of a workday to unwind before bed has noticeably improved our sleep and stress levels. My husband and I look forwards to our sauna time every night after we put the kids to bed. The team at Redwood has been incredible- my husband was able to assemble the entire sauna by himself over two days. Anytime he had a question, the Redwood team was super responsive and quick to point us in the right direction. When we asked a question about pouring a concrete pad to support the sauna, the CX team member even offered to provide pictures and measurements of the one they have at their own home as an additional resource - truly above and beyond customer experience. Now that we've been in the sauna for three weeks we have no complaints- the quality of the wood and product are top notch. Excited to enjoy for many years to come!!
Absolutely love my Sauna. It was simple to put together and the quality craftsmanship of Redwood Outdoors shows. I wanted a Sauna that was made in the PNW and ready for our elements and the Redwood Outdoors has been a delight. I've recommended them to all my friends and they all want one after one session in there. Great work team!
Redwood Outdoors has been amazing to work with! Great customer service and quick turnover for shipping/receiving the sauna. And the quality is top notch! The sauna was easy to install, and I am absolutely loving it! I have already recommended Redwood Outdoors to many people interested in an at-home sauna, and will continue to due so!
Protect your sauna from the elements and keep it looking its best for longer by protecting the wood with a shingled roof. We recommend adding these asphalt shingles to keep water off the sauna and increase the wood’s longevity. The shingles are black in color.

HARVIA KIP ELECTRIC HEATER
The KIP family of electric sauna heaters are traditional Finnish wall-mounted heaters. They heat up fast and reach high temperatures of ~190F within one hour. This design holds up to 40 lbs of rocks, on which you can douse water to create soothing steam. The KIP creates a relatively dry heat and you should expect ~15-25% relative humidity in the sauna. The KIP comes in an attractive stainless steel exterior case that easily mounts on your sauna wall.
Harvia is the world’s leading sauna heater manufacturer and Harvia heaters are considered the industry gold standard. Harvia was established in Finland in 1950 and has built an international reputation for exceptional quality. With a Harvia heater, you know you are getting a reliable product that you and your family can trust. All our Harvia sauna heaters are ETL certified and are manufactured in Finland.
HARVIA CILINDRO ELECTRIC HEATER
The Finnish word “löyly” is the name for the hot steam that rises from your sauna rocks after water has been carefully poured on top of them. The steam turns your sauna into a hot and humid paradise, capable of relaxing even the tensest muscles or stressed minds.
The Cilindro specializes in creating a lot of steam. This is because the heater holds 160 lbs of rocks! All these rocks create a more even heat distribution and an incredible löyly that would make any Finn proud.
The Cilindro has a slightly longer heat-up time than the KIP, due to the number of rocks and is designed to run at a lower absolute temperature. The temperature you should expect from this heater is ~165F, which is the perfect temperature for a steamy sauna (>30% relative humidity) to prevent scalding. Due to the higher humidity in the room, the perceived temperature in the sauna will feel comparable to a drier sauna running at a higher absolute temperature.
HUUM DROP ELECTRIC HEATER
The HUUM DROP is an award-winning sauna heater. Made in Estonia, this eye-catching heater is quickly emerging as a stand-out in modern sauna design. Its shape is inspired by the purest element in nature – a water drop. Its round design softens and livens up the interior of a classic sauna, giving it a touch of elegance.
But DROP isn’t only about the looks. This compact wall-mounted heater can fit up to 120 lbs of sauna rocks. This guarantees both hot temperatures and long-lasting steam. The HUUM is fast to heat up and can reach temperatures of ~195F. The HUUM creates more steam than the KIP heater, but less than the Cilindro heater. It's somewhere in the middle in terms of its “löyly” potential.
Every HUUM DROP heater comes delivered with HUUM sauna stones and a HUUM UKU Wi-Fi controller. This makes it a must-have heater for customers who like a modern look, combined with modern functionality.
