Two Saunas for Sale in Minneapolis St. Paul

Sauna #1:

Here we have an 8’x12′ backyard sauna. I put in several hours of my own time to help build this sauna. This is a collaboration with several smart thinkers and doers in the world of sauna. Collaborators include my friend Darin, creator of the patented Urban Wing Sauna Vent, UP Finn Joel, and my buddy Daniel helped too. I designed this sauna using my tried and true 8×12 backyard sauna model that dates back to 2009, and I encourage you to read more about this design by clicking here. I have built about 10 of these same 8’x12′ saunas, and I have helped several hundreds build their own. I am a big fan of this layout, where the hot room and the changing room are pretty close to the same dimension. In this case:

  • Height: 7′
  • Hot room: 7’4″ x 5’9″
  • Cool down room: 7’4″ x 5’9″

This sauna comes complete, and ready for a match to get the Kuuma going. This sauna has been fired up about 10 times (4 or 5 by me), and is now just barely broken in. (The entire sauna will be professionally cleaned and restored to new condition).

  1. Great stuff Glenn, keep them coming. What are the best practices for ensuring the foundation is level?

    I’ve had a tent sauna in my backyard in the past but didn’t do a great job to level it. I also have a 20 x 20 gravel space adjacent to my driveway that could be suitable if leveled or rigged in a way to make it level.

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Matt:

    Leveling a foundation for sauna depends upon a few variables. Eg. how much elevation are we dealing with, what’s the current drainage situation, permanent build or temporary, etc. All this is detailed in my e-book, where I mention class 5 as a good base as well as simple blocking in corners to support the framework, allowing for airflow underneath. A blocking system allows us to re-level at anytime. And a good base for blocks is to dig down with a #2 shovel, and back fill with Class 5.

    Hope this helps you get into a “level the vibes” spirit. We only get to prepare the base for our saunas one time, so it’s good that you’re applying consciousness to it.

  3. I’m late to this particular sauna acquisition party but not to emotional investment in sauna as a whole. Please email me if the little guy (6’X8′) or one like it is still available. Must fit one 6’5 man (my husband) as well as me and our two little girls who will of course grow to be full sized eventually.
