Exterior Materials

Thermally Modified Spruce

Thermal Modification of wood is a natural process using heat and steam in a vacuum to alter wood at a cellular level. When done right, it makes the wood significantly more durable, stable, and longer lasting. Thermo-Spruce is darker than raw spruce wood, closer in color and performance to Western Red Cedar.
Insulation

Single Layer of Wood

While the R-Value is much lower than an insulated wall, saunas made with a single layer of wood have good thermal mass and can easily dry to the interior and exterior.

SaunaLife EE8G Upper Bench Barrel Sauna

(2 customer reviews)

Experience truly elevated heat and steam with the extra large SaunaLife EE8G barrel sauna kit.  Its remarkable 91″ in diameter and included flat floor creates an inspiring space for stretching out or enjoying the views without bumping knees with the person across from you.

Upper benches mean your feet will rise above the cool floor and take comfort in ergonomic clear aspen benches, approximately 20 inches in depth to invite laying down.

Like all SaunaLife barrel saunas, the thermowood is sourced and milled in Northern Europe with thermally modified Nordic spruce, resulting in a beautiful warm tone that lasts longer than cedar without expanding and contracting.

The EE8G comes standard with a full glass front wall, extra thick 1.65″ staves, asphalt shingles, flat floor kit, and an LED light kit.  The SaunaLife EE8G may be the best performing, longest lasting barrel sauna ever.

SaunaLife EE8G

The Ultimate in Durability, Comfort, and Performance

ee8g barrel sauna with upper bench and thermowood

The experts at SaunaLife thought long and hard about what the perfect barrel sauna would look like.  A dream checklist was made.  No one thought it was possible.  The SaunaLife EE8G Delivers.

Everything is Elevated, Starting With Your Feet

The biggest criticism about barrel saunas is they don't get your feet high enough.  Ideally, you want the entire body elevated on an upper bench where sauna conditions are improved by physics.  

Other barrel sauna companies have tried to achieve this by putting an upper bench on the back wall.  The problem, then, is the heater has to go off to the side along the front wall and necessarily rises along with the benches, negating the effect.

The SaunaLife EE8G is the first barrel sauna available in North America that keeps the heater in the optimal low position while providing an upper bench on both sides.

The result will blow you away.

    Gents, I wanted to reach out to thank you for your excellent customer service through out this process. Although there were complications out of your control your constant communication and rapid action made up for these minor inconveniences.

    I have an electrician coming Friday and am looking forward to getting this beauty fired up!

    I can’t help but share a picture. I did some minor assembly and staging Friday after unloading. I had everything but the roof and trim on by 5 pm. These kits are amazing!
