After the deck renovations and pergola were completed, we were ready to build the sauna that had been ordered the previous winter and sat in its box in the driveway all year.  The location of the sauna had been chosen prior to building the pergola, and it was to have a nice view of Tahquitz Peak from underneath the pergola.  The sauna was built by two workawayers (see if you’re unfamiliar) named Brenden and Julianna.  They were the first workaway guests that P&P had hosted and they had such a wonderful independent work ethic and sense of quality.  They were able to complete the entire construction except the electrical work for the 240v sauna heater which Colin took care of.

Here’s the sauna towards the beginning of construction:

Here it is after adding the door wall:

More progress (benches and heater wall installed):

Here’s my favorite pic of the construction:
