3. Sauna Design - Specifications ...
5. Sauna Plans - Heater Location & Specs ...
The sauna heater is usually installed in a corner of the sauna room so it uses only a small area of the corner. If the heater is mounted across the corner, the construction of the heater guard becomes complicated as the heater guard will need to be built 3-sided to match the perimeter and outside shape of the heater. The easiest way to install the heater and the heater guard is to mount the heater on only one of the sauna walls so the heater guard can be a simple 2-sided rectangular design.

More sauna stove specs will be added to this section shortly. Just email us your sauna planning questions in the meantime. Read More >> ... Sauna Stove Specifications & More Info.
6. Sauna Design Plans - Bench Specifications ...
Sauna benches should be 20" wide for the top bench so it is not only comfortable to sit on but to be wide enough so you can lay down comfortably. The bottom bench is normally a little narrower, about 16-17" wide. More specs will be added to this section shortly. In the meantime, the section on "How to Build a Sauna" provides excellent detail on sauna bench designs, plans and building.
The Sauna Book, The Art of Sauna Building, has complete drawings on sauna bench construction.

7. Sauna Plans - Frequency of Sauna Use ...
A residential or home made sauna is generally used two or three times weekly by the entire family and is switched on and off as required. With a typical warmup time of 20 to 30 minutes, the family sauna is ready quickly. If time is available to use it every day, feel free to do so. Many sauna enthusiasts average 5 saunas per week. It is up to each individual whether you prefer to start the day with a cleansing sauna or use the family sauna in the evening to relax and clean up after the day is done.
A commercial sauna often found in fitness clubs may be switched on in the morning and off again at night, usually by an automatic sauna timer. Once a sauna is up to temperature, it takes little power to maintain the temperature during the day.
8. Sauna Plans - Use of Water in the Sauna ...
With today's trend toward the Finnish type of high heat dry sauna, a separate water tap inside the sauna is NOT REQUIRED. Furthermore, the electrical code now prohibits a water tap directly above the heater. A bucket and ladle are ideal to apply the small amounts of water onto the hot rocks to create a comfortable level of humidity.
These sauna plans and layouts can also be used as "banya plans" to build a Russian sauna or Russian banya. The "banya" or "bania" is normally used at a very high temperature with high humidity. The Russian banya design and construction is quite similar to the Finnish sauna.

Planning Ideas for Unique Situations...
Lack the room for a sauna shower? One idea that works fine is to locate the sauna shower inside the 6'x7' or 6'x8' sauna room. Use the shower after the sauna is finished. You will also need to apply a coat of our famed anti-stain preserver to your wood parts in order to protect the wood from water marks.
We welcome your ideas and questions so we can post them here. More to come...
