As the temperatures start to drop and the snow eventually accumulates, staying warm by the fire seems like a given. But what if you take it up a notch and get toasty in the tundra? Yes, as in outside.
Here to upgrade your hygge game is an igloo-shaped sauna from the fine folks at BZB Cabins and Outdoors.
With two full rooms and space to fit up to eight people, this spruce structure is practically a tiny home—you know, except for the whole no-kitchen, no-bathroom situation. But what it lacks in typical tiny house elements it makes up for in its ~fancy~ features like two extensive benches, each long enough to comfortably fit all eight sauna-enjoying adults and for "the tallest member of the family to stretch out," per the company's website. Plus, this backyard bad boy boasts windows flanking either of side of the heater that create a truly relaxing indoor-outdoor-sauna situation.
Once you make the mad dash in the chilly temps across your backyard, you'll first arrive on the igloo's covered terrace—an underrated feature that becomes especially key when you need a second to cool down but don't want to stand directly under the falling slow. From there, you'll pass through the first of two glass doors to ditch any extra layers in the "changing room" before gravitating toward the back of the structure where things start to get steamy. As for the type of heat filling the igloo? Well, the choice—between electric or wood burning— is yours.
Before you can sit back and relax in your new garden getaway, however, you need to put in a little work since, after all, the sauna is sold in pieces or as a "kit."
But the DIY shouldn't be too tough—that is, of course, if you're a veritable Bob the Builder—because the $8,950 purchase includes instructions and all of hardware needed to set up your sauna.
You know what they say: Winter is coming. And thank goodness for that, am I right?
