This six-person outdoor sauna offers a relaxing experience no matter the weather.
There’s a reason why a few minutes in a steam sauna can make you feel better. Physically, the heat and humidity help relieve muscle and joint pain. Relaxing also allows puts you in the mind space to mentally unwind. Benefits include clearer skin and a deeper, more relaxing sleep, plus you burn more calories while sitting back and doing nothing at all. There’s also the pure novelty factor of having a personal sauna in your own backyard.
Made of rustic Western redcedar, this Almost Heaven Princeton sauna is delivered right to your doorstep. It arrives partially assembled and with instructions to do the rest yourself. Once built, it weighs a hefty 780 pounds and sits on molded support cradles that keep the barrel securely in place. The sauna sits six, or two laying down, and boasts a tempered glass door with wooden frame, a dimmable LED interior light bar and built-in vents for better airflow.
Inside the unit is an eight-kilowatt stainless steel water-over-rocks steamed heater which can hold 40 lbs of sauna stones. While the sauna is able to reach an impressive 190 degrees in little over an hour, it is also equipped with an eight-hour delay timer so you can set it in the morning to turn on in the evening.
It may seem mad to buy a sauna from the same place you get your avocados in bulk, but you’ll save much more than the value of a Costco membership fee. Just price compare this Princeton barrel model with the original retail value, or even sites like Wayfair.
