CHOICES! Almost Heaven Saunas Has 4 Types of Lumber for Sauna-Making
And now for Almost Heaven Saunas latest development: Offering 4 different types
of lumber to choose from when ordering your sauna!
For Almost Heaven Saunas outdoor Barrel Saunas, Western red cedar has always served us well. It is a lumber
that is naturally resistant to the elements, and it has often been remarked that the cedar smell is a special bonus.
Our most traditional cedar of choice has been clear with no or minimal knots.
Almost Heaven Saunas also made rustic Western red cedar Barrel Saunas available for anyone who wants a more
organic, woodsy feel to their oasis of relaxation. Rustic cedar has a collection of beautiful, tight knots.
In recent years, we’ve worked a lot with Coastal hemlock and fir – or hem-fir as it is typically called. Hem-fir is a
lighter colored lumber, and we’ve made wide use of it for our indoor saunas.
And then there’s Almost Heaven Saunas most recent addition to our lumber selections: Nordic spruce.
(The Nordic spruce we use comes from Sweden!) This lumber tends to be knottier and has a very
light, very lovely coloration. Like red cedar, it is a great lumber for outdoor applications.
All of our U.S.-made saunas are now available in all four lumber types, giving you the freedom to select
what complements your personal style preferences best!
