Sauna construction - What is to be observed?
When it gets uncomfortable outside, most people want nothing more than warmth and relaxation within their own four walls. But the heating only warms from the outside and you can't really relax in front of it. For those who long for a deep inner warmth, the home sauna is the successful alternative. But what is necessary to build the sauna yourself?
Building your own sauna - small sauna in a rented apartment?
Nowadays, you no longer need to be the owner of your own home in order to fulfil your desire for a home sauna. After all, a modern sauna is no longer a bulky block of wood that can only be hidden in the cellar, but can be placed in the bathroom to save space. Since the sauna is supposed to be a completely private wellness zone that guarantees total rest and relaxation, a beautiful ambience is tremendously important. Especially if the sauna has not been banished to the basement or the back corner, it can be used as a living element. And space can be found in the smallest hut, be it in the large bathroom, in an empty children's room, in the converted attic, in the conservatory or in the garden under the open sky. Thus, such a sweat room is just as suitable for your own cottage, condominium or for rented apartments.
Self-built sauna - the optimal location of the sauna
It is particularly good if the sauna is given a place from which the bath or shower can be reached quickly and a corresponding rest area can also be set up nearby. Those who accommodate the sauna in the garden cannot really do anything wrong, as with an outside shower and a nice sun lounger, they have everything under control. The sauna can also be wonderfully integrated into the house. Bath and shower are available here anyway and there are also enough resting areas. All you have to do is find a sufficiently large space for the sauna cabin and you can enjoy the advantages of the home sauna.
Installation of a sauna cabin
Most manufacturers have already dealt with the problem of domestic crampedness and with modern designs ensure that the sauna can be easily integrated into the living ambience. In principle, the sauna can be placed in any room. However, there are a few prerequisites that must be taken into account during installation. A home sauna, however small and space-saving it may be, needs connections for water and electricity. Therefore, you should plan exactly where the installation of the sauna is easiest. In addition, the sauna must be placed on a smooth, straight and waterproof surface. Tiles are most suitable here. The ventilation of the home sauna must also be ensured. The steam-tight insulation of the sauna creates condensation water, which makes the room damp if there is not sufficient ventilation. A window or a ventilation system is therefore absolutely necessary. For the power supply, the sauna usually requires 400 volt supply lines, which should be laid by a specialist. This specialist can then also take care of the connection of important accessories such as the sauna oven with its sauna heating rod.
Building your own sauna - relaxing times in your own wellness oasis
In order to enjoy the sauna, you only have to turn on the sauna oven and wait until the temperature in the sauna cabin has reached the right level. And then you can enjoy your first healthy and relaxing sauna session in your own four walls.
