Amazing what a bunch of people can build over two years. In August of 2008, we started building the Sauna Haus with just Todd, my dad and I putting the foundation posts and beams into place by hand. Many weekends later, we have a closed-in building. Yay!
The first weekend of October, with another work crew consisting of Todd, Eric, Paul, Peter and me, we completed the cedar siding. All that is left on the outside is the cedar shake in the gables.
Here's a good photos of the Streicher boys nailing in the cedar siding.
This summer we also got the windows installed, rock wall completed, the well dug, water to the building, insulated inside. With the sauna stove installed and the firewood cut, we can actually work inside this winter, if we so wanted... Not sure about that yet.
Love the look of natural wood. I think we did a good job this summer!
