Let’s design your custom-made barrel sauna!
As a specialised sauna workshop, the Outdoor Saunas team encourages you to choose the options that would make it your dream come true.
Important things to consider when building your custom-made sauna:
Out of a myriad of options when designing your custom-made barrel sauna, we reduced it to the topmost important questions to consider:
Barrel sauna design is a traditional way of building saunas in Scandinavian and Baltic states, but you can also find such designs all over the world.
It is considered to be more spacious – especially noted when standing up or spending time with a larger group of people.
All our barrel saunas come with a modern touch – a panoramic window. You can choose between 50%, 80% or 100% options to bring even more light and have wider views.
It really depends on with who you are planning to share this experience. For example, a 2-3 meter sauna would be perfect for a couple. For families with kids, your sauna should start at 3 m, as you want to leave some extra space between the heaters and your bundles of joy.
For anyone planning to have parties or more social sauna experience, then a 4-5 meter sauna would be a more suitable option.
To save on space inside, we do not offer changing room allocation in this custom sauna build tool, but you can request it afterwards. Just don’t forget to allocate 1 – 1,5 m from internal space, and be prepared to pay a little more for an extra wall.
You can also skip on the external seating space to get more internal space in your sauna. But it is quite a nice space to cool down and socialise while enjoying the outdoors.
Panoramic view windows are the best invention. It adds so much to the experience that we no longer offer saunas without it.
Go for a 100% panoramic view window to get the most out of it – but it also depends on the view you will have.
In front of the window, you can place a stove, a table, or a bench – up to you.
Finish or steam sauna experience:
It is the ultimate question – are you a Finish or a steam sauna fan? Some people also want to build an off-grid sauna independent of electricity – then wood burning stove with hot steam sessions is for you.
There is a long list of pros and cons for either option – you can read a comprehensive comparison here
Additional seating area outside:
It can be a nice place to cool down and get ready to go back in. But if you skip on it – it will give you more internal space.
What happens after you make an order:
Our price calculator will give you an immediate price. It can be quite fun choosing different things and seeing how the price changes.
After you have chosen and paid, we will be in touch to finalise all your options and allow you to review them once more before we start building your custom-made outdoor sauna.
