Building a sauna - You should think about that

Building a sauna is an exciting process that can provide many years of relaxation and enjoyment. But there is a lot to consider when building your own sauna. In this blog post, we go through everything you need to know.

Building permit for Sauna

In Sweden, a building permit is usually required if you are going to build a sauna, especially if it is intended to be a permanent structure on your property. However, there are exceptions for smaller buildings. It is always best to contact your municipality to get detailed information about the building permit regulations for your particular area.

But here comes the fantastic: Our sauna tents do not require a building permit! This makes them a perfect option for those who want a sauna experience at home without having to go through the process of applying for planning permission.

Selection of Materials for the Sauna

When it comes to choosing materials for your sauna, it is important to think about safety and durability. For example, cedar wood is a popular choice for saunas because it withstands moisture well and does not get as hot as other types of wood. Plywood can be used for some parts of the sauna, but it is not the best choice for areas that will be exposed to high heat and humidity.

Our sauna tents are designed with materials that are safe, durable and adapted to high temperatures and humidity.

Drainage and Ventilation in the Sauna

A drain is not always necessary in a sauna, but it can facilitate cleaning and maintenance. Ventilation, on the other hand, is extremely important to ensure a safe and pleasant climate in the sauna.

Our sauna tents are designed with ventilation in mind, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Notification of Sauna

Often you do not need to report the construction of a sauna to any authority, but it may be necessary if the construction involves a major change to your property. It is always best to contact your municipality to be sure.

But, you don't have to worry about this if you choose one of our sauna tents!

Important aspects to consider when building a sauna

Here are some important things to consider when building your sauna:

  • Location: Where will the sauna be located and how will it fit into your garden or patio?
  • Size: How many people should be able to use the sauna at the same time?
  • Source of heat: Will you be using a traditional wood-burning stove, an electric heater, or some other heat source?
  • Design: How do you want your sauna to look?
