A traditional wood-burning heater or a modern electric heater - which is the best?
As the decision is very personal, it's impossible to say that one or the other is the best choice for everyone. Here are some details about each that will help you choose the one that best fits your lifestyle.
The wood-burning heater is the most traditional option. If you install your sauna in a location without easy access to electricity and know how to light a fire yourself, the wood-burning heater is an excellent choice that we highly recommend. With this option you have a choice of chimney options, out the top a or out the back, and will have the convenience of an inside feed to feed wood.
The electric heater is preferred by some people because it's convenient and simple to use. It can be turned on and off with just the click of a button. Plus, you don't have to worry about acquiring or storing any firewood.
Both heaters will offer a powerful heat experience that will have you enjoying your sauna for years to come.

Adding a porch and/or a changeroom will make your sauna much more sophisticated, beautiful and practical.
A changeroom is an excellent choice for colder climates or areas where weather can change unexpectedly. This space allows you to transition more easily between the hot sauna and cold exterior. The changeroom adds 4 feet to your sauna.
The porch provides a sheltered space for cooling off post-sauna and keeping rain and snow away from your door. The porch adds 2 feet to your sauna.
Porch & Changeroom
For your barrel sauna we recommend adding a roof with the included water shield for extra protection. Although not required, a roof can eliminate potential seepage from heavy rains. Also adding the wooden cove is a good alternative if you don't select a porch. It keeps the rain and snow away from the sauna door, and provides a unique, finished appearance.

The window in the door comes standard with all saunas. You have the option to add additional windows in two locations: the front and the back wall. The front wall windows on both sides of the door let in a lot of natural light. If you select the changeroom option, you can also add extra windows next to that door. It is nice to sit in the changeroom between sauna sessions, and to be able to see out.
With electric heaters, it's possible to have a window on the back wall as well. You can choose to have a 20 inch by 30 inch window, to let in more natural light.
Although the walls' staves are in knotty red cedar, all benches come in clear cedar wood. Every sauna includes standard benches. You can opt to keep the standard benches however we recommend adding a flat floor. A level surface makes it more comfortable to walk inside the sauna.
You can also choose one of these bench upgrades:
The Signature Upgrade includes curved, park-style benches, giving the sauna a very detailed and finished look. This upgrade includes a flat floor.
The Lounge Upgrade (available with 7'x7' and 7'x8' saunas) gives you the option to turn your flat bench into a personalized lounge chair. The reclining option gives support to your back and legs which offers the ultimate relaxation experience. This upgrade includes a flat floor.
Both Signature and Lounge upgrades come with cedar slats between the bench and the flat floor. It gives the sauna a very sophisticated look. Both upgrades also include the full length backrests inside the sauna (choose this option also changeroom if you'd like the benches to match).
Standard Benches/Flat Floor
