Some precut saunas also include an accessory kit (thermometer, water bucket, ladle, aromatherapy oils, etc.). The materials not typically included are 2 x 4 framing for walls, insulation, air grills for ventilation, wiring, and exterior paneling or wall covering.
Precut saunas come with all the pieces you’ll need to assemble and enjoy your own sauna.
With vertical boards, moisture has an easier time running down to the floor. Horizontal boards, in contrast, can trap moisture in the grooves, which can lead to wood stains.
Vertical board construction can be more expensive because all the boards need to be the full height of the sauna, whereas horizontal construction allows the use of shorter boards on narrower walls.
With horizontal construction, every row must be cut to length; with vertical construction, you can purchase 7-foot (2.1 m) lengths to cover the floor-to-ceiling distance and avoid cutting. Only the last board on each wall would need to be ripped to fit width.
