 BoulderSauna  Free-Standing or Refit?

Your free-standing oasis. An outdoor sauna has the distinct advantage of making it easy for you to roll around in the snow naked during your breaks.

Your sauna can be its own freestanding structure, an addition to your house, or a converted room or corner of a room inside your house. If you're building a structure or an addition, there are no special construction requirements until you get to the insulation and vapor barrier—framing, siding, and roofing are the same no matter what you're building. Of course, converting a room inside an existing structure is the easiest. And no matter what your constuction, you can always use a do-it-yourself sauna kit.

This small addition will become a rather luxurious 7x6-foot sauna. The framing is no different than for any other type of addition.

The easiest option is to refit a corner or small room inside your house. You'll probably want to upgrade any existing insulation and you'll likely need to make some modifications or additions to the existing frame.
