Old to New – Custom Sauna Remodel

A Minneapolis, Minnesota family recently purchased a fixer-upper home. In the basement, there was a sauna. However, the non-brand sauna was horribly designed and rundown.


The couple knew the potential of this 5’x’7’ space and contacted Finnleo to make their traditional sauna dream a reality. The video below shows how the homeowners gutted out the old sauna and converted it to become the prized feature of their home.


With their Finnleo cedar custom sauna completed, including the Himalaya rock tower heater operated by the SaunaLogic2 control with mobile app, the couple says the sauna has enhanced their lives immensely. It is their favorite end-of-day retreat from their busy lives. “We feel lucky to have a relaxing “home spa” that we can retreat to every single day, sometimes even twice a day. And to top it off, we love the ease of starting and controlling our sauna from anywhere, using our cell phones and the SL2 mobile app,” states the couple.

Sauna Details:

  • Sauna Model: Permanently installed custom sauna with Western Red Cedar
  • Heater: Himalaya rock tower heater with BioWater Technique
  • Control: SaunaLogic2 Control with the mobile app
