Product Overview

With the Charleston, there is no such thing as too functional. Measuring 6’x8’, we allotted two feet of space for the exterior benches. This provides more space to cool off after the sauna or store water, towels, clothes, or even plants! The six feet of interior space is heated by a Harvia 6kW electric heater. Properly installed, the heater included in your sauna kit should consistently achieve temperatures of 175-185F in 45-60 minutes, or you can delay the start time up to eight hours. Relaxation is only a few steps away with the Charleston barrel sauna!

 

Please note, due to its size, this unit ships via flatbed. Please review the Flatbed Shipping Policy to ensure you are prepared for your sauna's arrival!

NOTE: This sauna has an expected shipping lead time of 8 weeks.

Care & Maintenance

To best preserve and enhance your investment, be sure to wipe down the interior and vacuum as needed. Maintenance products, such as the heater and sauna cleaners and exterior sauna stains are additional recommendations on how to best preserve your sauna. 

On an annual basis, it is recommended you hand vacuum the heater cavity, clean or replace heater stones as needed, and use a low-pressure wash on the exterior of the sauna. For barrel saunas, check the exterior for loose parts. Find additional information on how to best care for and maintain your sauna here.

FAQs

Why does the canopy bench look bigger for the Charleston than the other models?

The Charleston model offers the longest canopy bench. It is 2 feet deep whereas our other canopy barrels have a 1 foot deep canopy bench.

Customize your Charleston!

Our Canopy Barrel Saunas are available in either Rustic Fir or Rustic Cedar, the optimal lumber of choice because of its natural resistance to the elements, its characteristic aroma, and its softwood properties. Rustic red cedar is also ideal because it will remain comfortable to the touch even when used in the extreme heat of a sauna. If you look closely at our saunas; you’ll also notice that we use thick tempered glass and stainless-steel hardware to support the integrity and durability of the unit as a whole. Lumber is just one of the options you can customize when you directly order through Almost Heaven.

DIY Sauna Kit - The Charleston

The simple grace of a barrel-shaped sauna is found in its ball-and-socket profile, held in place by sturdy stainless-steel bands and minimal fasteners. This arrangement allows the lumber staves to expand and contract to form a tight seal, and the unit sits on polymer support cradles that lift the sauna undercarriage off the ground. The Canopy Barrel Sauna is an expressive take on our classic Barrel Sauna – a design noted for its efficiency, even distribution of heat, and visual appeal. By taking the front round section and setting it back into the sauna, we’ve created a visually appealing and useful outside sitting area – a place to hold towels or drinks or to serve as a relaxing place to cool off between sauna rounds.
