DIY Sauna Kit: Build your own Sauna with Almost Heaven

Almost Heaven Saunas is committed to offering you the ultimate sauna experience. This experience starts with the building process of your sauna. Saunas are shipped as kits, DIY projects that are easily assembled and can be completed in just a few hours by 2-3 individuals. Our West Virginia factory makes it as easy and enjoyable as possible by providing pre-built wall sections and assembled benches using the highest quality materials. All of the lumber is pre-cut and pre-notched for a precise fit and finish for both indoor and outdoor sauna rooms, which makes the DIY assembly of your sauna kit a breeze.

Our craftsmen use only the finest softwoods for the highest quality of insulation and endurance. Our Indoor Respite Series and Barrel Saunas can be built with Western Red Cedar, Rustic Fir, or Clear Rustic Cedar. And our Element Series and Cabin Saunas are available in Nordic Spruce. We also carry a variety of luxury saunas and sleek Infrared saunas.

The health benefits of sauna use are well known and documented by the North American Sauna Society. These include cardiovascular conditioning, weight loss, detoxification, improved circulation, respiratory relief, and more. Many of these benefits are derived from the high temperature of a sauna and the steam that is generated by pouring water on the hot rocks. The high heat and rejuvenating steam are what makes the traditional steam sauna stand out from the infrared room saunas. With an Almost Heaven traditional steam sauna you can DIY and build your very own personal spa in the comfort of your own home.

Below, you will see three icons. Green, yellow, and red. These icons indicate the level of skill it might take to DIY, build and complete each sauna room. You will find skill level icons next to each sauna series on our website (Indoor, Barrel, Cabin). These are a great indicator as to what each kit’s level of “difficulty” is to build. We want to set your project up for success!

You will also find a link to our sauna installation videos which take you step by step through the process of building your very own DIY sauna kit.


We want to make it as easy as possible for you to build the sauna of your dreams.

Some basic handyman skills are helpful when assembling the sauna. The only additional equipment needed is a cordless drill. Two people can generally do the assembly in 6 hours or less. It is recommended that you review the assembly manual in advance to familiarize yourself with the process.



Mid-level handyman and assembly skills are recommended for this sauna. Minimal sawing or modifying certain components may be necessary during the assembly process. Two people can generally do the assembly in 6-8 hours. It is recommended that you review the installation manual in advance to familiarize yourself with the process.


Definite handyman or contracting skills are required. The instructions are basic and written for a global market with the assumption that the assembler has construction experience. Do not attempt to build on your own if you are not familiar with construction practices nor able to work with general instructions. It is recommended that you read the assembly manual in advance if you are unsure of your ability. Two people can generally assemble the unit in 2-3 days.
