Backyard Saunas

We’re looking for a small (1-3 person) traditional (not infrared) sauna for our Berkeley backyard. Does anyone have any recommendations for products or installers?

RE: Backyard Saunas ()

I recently installed a 5x7 Finnleo sauna in my backyard and am loving it.  Ordered through Berkeley Heat (ships from Minnesota).  Not the cheapest but definitely excellent quality and Finnleo has very responsive and knowledgeable customer service.  I think Berkeley Heat focuses a bit more on hot tubs so I sometimes talked with Finnleo directly to answer more technical questions.

I have seen a few Finnleo saunas available on Craigslist over the last few years but they were always sold by the time I messaged.  

We didn't do plumbing, just electric.  With pouring a pad, building and installation, it was all done in 4-5 days I think.  

We used Brotherly Love to install the unit and they did a wonderful job (and have done other work for us as well).

We got a barrel steam sauna from Costco last year in our backyard in Berkeley and have been very happy with it. It requires assembly, but it’s pretty straightforward to put together and is great quality. You can check it out here
