The high-quality Almost Heaven Barrel Sauna was developed over thirty years ago, and was the first of the Almost Heaven line. The pleasing barrel shape is both stylish and functional, providing maximum usable space while minimizing excess cubic feet. The less cubic feet of air, the faster your room will heat. In addition, our Almost Heaven Barrel Sauna maximizes seating space by utilizing opposing benches that run the full length of the room. Also, as an outdoor sauna, the Barrel Sauna is ideal for the backyard or garden environment.
The Almost Heaven Barrel Sauna is a barrel kit that comes to you partially assembled. Assembly can be accomplished in just a few hours and is very easy to do. The unit is mounted on two molded polymer cradles, which are impervious to breakdown by the elements, allowing you to place your Barrel Sauna right on the ground if you choose. There are also mounting holes molded into the cradles allowing you to anchor the sauna to a deck or patio if you prefer a secure installation.
The craftsmanship of the Barrel is exquisite and incorporates traditional cooperage, or barrel-making construction, in its design. It is important that a sauna have high-quality lumber in its construction. Rough lumber can cause slivers and discomfort, and large knots can get hot and actually burn you in the hot environment. The wood of choice is Western Canadian Red Cedar because it is a soft-wood that provides minimal knots and beautiful coloring. Additionally, red cedar has a very sweet aroma which is enhanced with the heat and hot steam.
Craftsman hand select each piece of cedar for optimal use in the construction of the sauna and reject those boards which do not meet our high standards. You will appreciate the craftsmanship and quality materials each and every time you enjoy your sauna. Your investment in a healthy lifestyle is backed by the best sauna warranty available, and Almost Heaven Saunas has a nearly 40-year reputation for exceptional quality cooperage style saunas.
