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!

  • Lumber type: Choose between three different types of solid lumber. Rustic fir is light in color, with small knots creating a unique pattern on each piece. Rustic cedar has a slightly red hue amongst the knots and boasts a pleasant cedar aroma. Clear cedar is premium lumber, with knots noticeably absent. All three lumber options are 1 ⅜” thick to insulate the sauna room.


    Vista Rear Window: Open the barrel sauna interior to breathtaking views with the addition of the vista rear window. This 20” x 36” piece of 3/8” glass sits on the back end barrel, above the electric heater. 



    Door style: Outfit your sauna with one of the following four door options: deluxe glass, fading glass, wood with a window, all-wood. 


    Heater: You can upgrade the Charleston from the standard 6kW heater to an 8kW. 

  • Shipping
  • The Charleston will ship via an LTL truck and will arrive curbside on a single pallet. 

  • 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. 

  • Sauna Type
  • 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. 

  • Assembly
  • 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. 

  • 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.
