An inexpensive basement sauna

My new virtual friend Jonathon and his dad applied some resourceful upper Midwest ingenuity, building a basement sauna using cheap doors for walls, ceiling.  They were purchased for $1 each at the bargain bin at Menards, our resourceful upper Midwest version of Home Depot.

The creative thing about using doors for walls (despite the obvious) is that being 6’8″ tall, they are a pretty ideal height for sauna walls.

Nice work Jonathon, and thanks for the kind words.  Check out his project here.

  1. This was really a good link to a great post. An excellent how-to, complete with step by step pics. Very engaging. Really made me consider building one myself.
