The sauna is made from locally cut eastern white cedar, cleft slate flooring, and granite rocks from my backyard.

This is quite impressive. What did you use as a heat/steam source. I love the wood and the say is is incorporated intoa window. Nice job!

I think that would be a nice way to unwind after an evening of bowling with a few oat sodas. Careful man, there’s a beverage here…

Nice job! I also like that you have big window there and real wooden bucket…electric stove is ok when it´s not regulated too hot but real stove is heated with wood

I like the window. Ours is in the basement so we couldn’t have one. We also have the same heating unit I think. Works great and quick heat up too. You did a nice job, enjoy the winter.

So long as the window glass is single pane there shouldn’t be any condensation issues. Only with the gas-filled double panes would you get condensation. There is minimal heat loss through the window too, the big task is insulating the ceiling, which I’ve got over R100, at over 28 inches thick of insulation. Even at 200 degrees, the slate floor is still even too cold to touch with bare feet, which is something I wouldn’t have guessed.
