Panel Buildings for Sauna Housesby Neil Peterson May 24, 2016
Using Panel Log Cabins as a Base for our Outdoor Saunas
In order to provide another high quality exterior option for our outdoor sauna houses, we have decided to team up with modular log cabin manufacturer Panel Concepts (www.PanelConcepts.com). They have been in business since 1996, primarily focused on selling their units as hunting/fishing cabins, or pool houses. Their cabins can be built with almost unlimited configurations due to their panel construction, which makes them a great fit to pair with our custom saunas. Another great advantage of this panel concept is that they can be built easily in only one day, with only 2-3 people needed to assemble them. The easy turnaround on these installations is a great time and money saving advantage for our customers!
These cabins, much like our own previous work on outdoor sauna houses, can be built on a poured concrete foundation, or mounted on treated lumber posts and footings. Many of their models come equipped with porch areas which also pair well with sauna bathing by giving you a great place to rest and cool off between sessions!
We are currently prepping for a job in Northern California, which will be our first opportunity to incorporate one of these cabins into our designs. This particular customer was looking to add a sauna house as a little getaway in the woods of their large property which would also serve as a social center for their family – very much in the mold of the Finnish sauna tradition. We are very excited to visit this part of the country and get to work on this awesome project, and will let you all know how it goes!
