Unfortunately, stress has become the affliction of the century, affecting all of us, starting with the small children that are in schools, to the adults that work all day, and even the elders who feel great amounts of stress because they seem to have worked all their lives for nothing. We can’t change the fact that we live stressing lives while we are at our jobs, or at school, but we can relax and calm ourselves as much as we can in our free time. Going to the sauna is an activity that helps unwind and detach from all the problems that surround us. But why go to a gym or a spa to enjoy a sauna, when you can have one in your own home?
Buying a home sauna
For the people who don’t have much time on their hands, or aren’t good at manual labor, there is a solution to owning a home sauna, but it’s very pricey – buying a pre-built sauna. Depending on how much you want to spend, the price can vary from $1500 to $20000. The price is explainable, because the effort you put into making the sauna is almost null. You simply assemble it in a very short time, and you can start enjoying your sauna the same day it arrives in your house.
A great sauna, that comes at a reasonable price is the Cedro Prebuilt Sauna 3’x4’x7′. It might cost $4000, but compared to other pre-built models, this isn’t a big price. You just order it, and it will come at your house with the walls already panelled and freestanding, allowing you to install the sauna wherever you like in a couple of hours, without much effort being put in it. The great advantage of the pre-built sauna is that it can be disassembled, and you can move it whenever you want in another place.
Building a home sauna
If you like DIY projects and you want to save money by building your own sauna, be aware of the fact that it will take a lot of time to finish it, especially if you can only work on it on week-ends. But don’t expect it to be free, you will still need to buy the necessary materials.
The best option to build it yourself without making a mistake along the road is to buy a pre-cut sauna kit that comes in the size you desire, and start off from there with building it. This type of kit comes with a door, benches, tongue and groove boards, trim, duckboard flooring, a thermometer, and a sauna heater that is the appropriate size for the kit you choose. By buying a pre-cut sauna kit and building the desired item yourself, you pay strictly for the materials needed for its construction. When you buy a sauna you don’t have this advantage, because you pay for delivery costs, and there are extra charges from the producer that come along with the perk of not putting any effort into making it.
