Cordwood Sauna

A sauna is a sacred structure.  We built this one using cordwood construction, a traditional natural building technique appreciated for its ecological and efficient use of local available resources, and high thermal mass. We built a concrete perimeter foundation, an oak and cedar post and beam structure, and pine cordwood infill. All the pine cordwood came from the property.

Designed and built with Joshua Lantzy on Klehm property, Freeport, IL.
