Aug 28, 2008
If you are one of the people who has decided to leave the gym sauna to others and build a personal sauna of your own you make want to consider an outdoor sauna. Depending on the space in your house as well as your outdoor landscaping an outdoor sauna can be a great addition to your home and landscape design.

Installing an outdoor sauna can serve a variety of purposes. It can be a focal point in a garden, a wonderful meditation spot next to a creek, or even double as a pool house for the family pool. If you are thinking about installing an outdoor sauna you need to think about how it will fit in your landscape and what kind of statement you want your sauna to make. Do you want it to blend into the landscape or be a stand out focal point. These are all things you need to think about before you purchase your sauna, as it will help you make the choice as to which sauna you will choose.
When choosing an outdoor sauna, as with most saunas, you can choose between doing it yourself from scratch and purchasing one of the many available outdoor sauna kit. The sauna kits have come a long way in recent years, and with the increasing popularity of outdoor saunas there are more options than ever. If you can't find a kit that fits your needs, you can generally find a company that will take a special order and create a kit to fit your custom needs.

Outdoor sauna kits are most often built out of cedar. It is a wood that resists the weather, as well as expands and contracts when needed to maintain the structure through the years. Outdoor saunas usually come with a roof, rafter and all it takes to install the structure. You will be provided with a set of step by step instructions, and should easily be able to install your outdoor sauna within the day.

An important point to remember when planning an outdoor sauna is you will need a non porous surface to build on. You will also need access to water and electricity. This is of course if you are considering a conventional sauna.

If you have no access to water you may want to consider a far infrared sauna. These saunas are perfect for using outdoors and use infrared heat instead of the moist heat of regular saunas. These saunas can easily be installed and up and running in just a couple hours. Since there is no plumbing involved the process is much easier.

If you are considering adding an outdoor sauna to your home, or property if you decide to use an outdoor sauna kit you can have it installed and working within an afternoon.
