Installing DIY sauna

In the pursuit of relaxation and well-being, Noah and I decided to add an outdoor sauna on our property. Getting on a sauna can reap a lot of benefits, however with two little kids we don’t always have the time to go to a gym and use one. So we decided to bring the sauna to us! After doing a lot of research, we decided the best sauna for us would be an Almost Heaven sauna.

Almost Heaven Saunas, known for their craftsmanship and commitment to quality, offer a range of exquisite saunas. We decided to go with their Salem 2-Person Barrel Sauna. The whole process was surprisingly easy. It only took a few hours to install and we were able to use it immediately after. Let me walk you through the process.

First thing first! Choose the perfect spot.

Before diving into the installation process, it’s crucial to select the ideal location for your Almost Heaven Sauna. Whether nestled in a garden or conveniently placed on a deck, the Salem 2-Person Barrel Sauna is designed to complement your space. Consider factors like accessibility, privacy, and proximity to power sources when making this decision.
