Assembly of your kit will require some handyman skills.
The good news is that the material has already been pre-cut, so it's a matter of following the instructions and fitting the pieces together correctly.
Instructions make assembling the pieces pretty straightforward. If you have some tool skills, you might be able to handle the job without much difficulty.
You do not have to be a professional carpenter to get the job done, however...
If you have average carpentry skills, be prepared to hire a contractor to set up your sauna.
Because most of the assembly work is done, modular kits are usually more expensive than pre-cut sauna kits.
Something else to consider...
In addition to being easier to assemble, portability is an added benefit of modular sauna rooms - a feature not included with pre-cut kits.
Questions You Will Need to Answer
Home sauna kits are usually permanent once they're built, so choose your preferred location carefully.
Most kits require you to provide the necessary wiring and framework.
If you’re converting a small room into a sauna, you could begin by stripping the existing wallboards off the frames.
Once that's done, you’ll need to insulate the framework and install a plastic vapor barrier over the insulation. Consult with your sauna salesperson before you do anything!
You will probably need an electrician to provide wiring for the sauna heater. Once this prep work has been done, your sauna kit can simply be attached to the existing framework and the heater is hooked up to the power supply.
