Prefabricated & Precut Saunas

Precut saunas now make it easy to install one in your home. If you have yet to discover the wonderful world of saunas you don’t know what you’re missing. Perhaps you’re reluctant to use public saunas at the spa or gym, but didn’t know you had an alternative. Here’s the good news. You do.

Prefabricated saunas make every home handyperson an expert, with all the ordering, measuring and cutting done for you before you start. And before you know it, you and your family will be enjoying the healthful benefits of a sauna right in your own home.

Sauna technology has improved over the years and infrared saunas are one of the newer innovations. They are becoming more popular and may offer the most benefits to your health. They make you sweat more and increase the benefits to the body. Whether you’re looking at precut saunas for the relaxation and body cleansing effects, or you have other issues, such as arthritis, a skin condition, chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, you will be happy with your investment either way.

Infrared light is a safe heat source for precut saunas because it’s something we experience every day naturally from the sun. You can safely be exposed to infrared heat for long periods of time and never have to worry about getting sunburn. Hospitals use infrared heat to keep newborn babies warm.

Prefabricated saunas are available for whatever size space you have. If you have an odd-sized space you want to use for the sauna, manufacturers can custom fit it for you. Standard packages come in sizes as small as 4 x 4 feet and move up to 4 x 6, 5 by 5’5”, 5 x 7, 6 x 6, 6 x 6’5”, 6 x 8, and 7 x 7’5”.

Prices for precut saunas, including heater, range from $3,600 at small end to $6,800 for the seven-foot size. Packages typically come with all the pre-cut wood you need, either western red cedar or spruce, for your walls and ceiling. If you’ve experienced a sauna before you will recognize the wonderful smell of western red cedar.

Packages for prefabricated saunas include the trim on the corners, ceiling and door; already assembled benches; a pre-hung door; a guardrail for the heater; a heater; vapor barrier and all other required items, including a bucket and ladle, thermometer and wall light.

If you don’t feel you have the carpentry skills for the job invite one of your more-skilled buddies over for the weekend and you’ll be enjoying the healthful benefits of a sauna for years to come.
