The Appalachia will impress anyone who steps foot inside the sauna. It has a full front porch, an attached changing room, and a spacious sauna room. The changing room can be outfitted with a variety of furniture or hooks, and is the perfect spot to get ready for a sauna even in the middle of winter. The sauna room has two bench levels, which can be split between six people for a sauna party or allow just a few people to stretch out and relax. The cabin design includes a sloping roof, interlocking timber pieces, a railing, and solid lumber. The sauna room can be outfitted with a Harvia 8kW electric heater or a wood-burning stove. If you favor convenience, the electric heater can delay the start time up to eight hours before it heats the room up to temperatures of 195ºF. Upgrade any backyard, retreat, or lodge with the Appalachia cabin sauna!

Care & Maintenance
Traditional saunas require very little upkeep. Simply wipe down the interior after each use and check for any dust or debris that you may have tracked in. Read more about long-term care and maintenance here.
Heater and stones are essential to a traditional sauna experience. With the room at least heated to 160ºF, the traditional sauna can be enjoyed two ways. The first is called a dry sauna, which lacks any added moisture. The second is called a wet sauna, where you sprinkle water onto the heated stones to create a refreshing burst of steam and added humidity.
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.
