Here's the top 6 facts defining our Western Red Cedar as the perfect wood for building a sauna:
1. Red Cedar is one of the Most Stable Softwoods Known -
ideal for use to build a sauna.
(a) cedar does not become hot to the touch because of millions of tiny air cells in the wood.
(b) cedar does not expand to any degree when the sauna is hot.
(c) cedar does not absorb moisture even though water is often used inside a sauna.
(d) cedar has an enjoyable scent that adds to the sauna experience
2. Red Cedar resists mold and fungus growths -

or the boards will shrink over time

Why it Makes Sense to Buy a Sauna Kit ...
The purpose of a DIY sauna kit is to provide all the specialty parts needed for a sauna builder to construct their own sauna at minimal cost. Consider these points:
1. Eliminate Mistakes -
sauna factory-outlets are best equipped to supply the 35 to 44 different parts needed to build a sauna along with detailed instructions that match the material. Costly mistakes and frustration are eliminated.
2. Prices are Low for a Sauna Kit -
prices for a quality sauna kit remain at affordable levels. It is not an expensive decision to buy a professionally-designed sauna kit from an experienced sauna factory like Home Saunas Since 1974.
3. Instructions are Important -
our instructions have seen constant improvement since 1974 when we started in the sauna business. Today, every customer get our best-seller book, The Art of Sauna Building.
4. Size is Important (the thickness that is) -
there are many suppliers of sauna kits that still use cedar that is too thin. W
hen you considering the heating and cooling cycles that the sauna room goes through -
it is very stressful on the wood. Thicker wood is more stable. It will eliminate warping and shrinkage. Your sauna will outlast our lives - so why not have it look great year after year? When the cedar lining is merely 1/2", or even 7/16" thick - it makes for a mediocre sauna room. We provide T&G cedar in 3 thicknesses: 1/2", 9/16" and our favorite - the 11/16" thickness that we use in "The Best" sauna kits.
This thickness is the thickest in the sauna industry. We use the 1/2" T&G in our Standard Kits for sheer economy - it shows you what a very basic sauna kit is all about.
