Why it Makes Sense to Buy a Sauna Kit ...

The purpose of a DIY sauna kit is to provide all the specialty parts needed for a sauna builder to construct their own sauna at minimal cost. Consider these points:

1. Eliminate Mistakes - manufacturers are best equipped to supply the 30 to 44 different parts that are needed along with detailed instructions that match the parts, eliminating costly mistakes and frustration.

2. Prices are Low for a Sauna Kit - It is not an expensive decision to buy a professionally-designed sauna kit from an experienced supplier like
Home Saunas Since 1974. We strive as a factory to always have low factory prices - our sauna kit customers report that our kit prices saved them $800 to $1,800 on their project.

3. Instructions are Important - our instructions have seen constant improvement since 1974 when we started making saunas. In addition, our customers get our best-seller book, "The Art of Sauna Building" and we share our "Tips to Avoid Mistakes Made by Others" with you.

4. Size is Important (the thickness that is) - there are many suppliers of sauna kits that still use cedar that is too thin. It is very stressful on the sauna wood when you considering the heating and cooling cycles that the sauna room goes through. Thicker wood is more stable. It eliminates warping and shrinkage. Your sauna will outlast our lives - so why not have it look great every year? When the cedar lining is merely 1/2" or 7/16" or 9/16" thick - they are not strong enough to resist warping in a sauna environment. The 11/16" thickness that we use in "The Best" sauna kits is the thickest in the industry, easier to install and meant to look beautiful for 50 years or more.
