Sauna is an integral part of the Finnish culture, we have wanted one for a long time. In the U.S., not many are in the habit of using a sauna, but it is wonderful for cleansing. I've had a couple of requests for a tour of the sauna we just finished building...hope you enjoy it!
I found this wooden Paula Deen soup ladle at Wal-Mart! Works great to throw water...
We took out a door and made a dressing area--I love all the hooks and open shelving, so functional with kids and teenagers!
We put in a prefab shower stall to minimize cleaning. My husband used leftover cedar to make trim.
Our whole family is really enjoying the sauna, and we took an unusable part of the basement and gave it a purpose.
