Classic Cabin Saunas
Classic Cabin Saunas: Disguise Your Health Hideaway
When is a sauna not a sauna? When it’s a Classic Cabin Sauna from Northern Leisure designed to distract yet built to attract. Almost like a decoy to the naked eye, at first glance, these saunas appear to be an appealing cabin in your backyard wooded area or a well-built shed hiding your treasures. While you could store your holiday decorations inside, we suggest you save that valuable space for yourself. You’ll keep your neighbours guessing what your new red cedar structure is, and it will be up to you to decide who to share the secret with – that it’s actually a sauna built using the classic design and finishing touches found in authentic Finland saunas. If you have troublesome Homeowners’ Association rules in your neighbourhood but still yearn for the benefits of a sauna, then a cabin sauna look is for you. Call it a shed made out of wood. More specifically, Canadian cedar. We will still call it a Classic Sauna. This means you get all the classic benefits of a sauna, except we added a waterproof zinc-coated steel cover on the roof to protect your investment from the weather. When it's harsh outside the cabin. It’s warm and welcoming inside your Classic Cabin Sauna. Enjoy your healthy hideaway - incognito.
Which Sauna Stove Should You Choose? Electric or Wood-Burning
Heating your Classic Cedar Sauna is one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make, and it comes down to a choice between practicality and functionality. After determining the size and style of your sauna and the outdoor location where you want to put it, you have to figure out how to create the dry heat experience you’re after for all those wonderful health benefits. While Northern Leisure saunas can accommodate either option, we build our Canadian saunas standard with an electric stove for a few reasons. Electric heating inside saunas is quite simply faster and easier. Think about it. Your kitchen stove reaches optimum heat faster than a fire you would build on a camping trip, right? It’s also hassle-free and convenient. We recommend the electric stove for those who frequently use your sauna. Depending on the size, a 40 Amp, 9 KW high-performing electric stove is included in our saunas. They are affixed to the floor and rapidly create the high temperatures and low humidity you seek. The other option is a wood-burning stove for those sauna owners who want the authentic experience that began centuries ago throughout Finland. Wood-burning stoves are usually found in remote cottages or places with a lot of land between the nearest electrical hookup. For wood-burning sauna options, you must install an upgraded chimney to ensure proper ventilation and locate your Northern Leisure sauna at least 10 feet away from structures and trees. Whichever heating option you use, both allow you to throw water on the fire with a ladle to create more steam.
