Barrel Sauna Tiny Abode

I’ve always been a big fan of wine barrels and their alternative uses. In college I had some barrel furniture and living in wine country you see many unusual uses of wine barrels.

The barrel sauna is a enlarged wine barrel made into a sauna. They are popular because of the rounded edges that let the moisture roll off the walls. I have done some research and discovered that a couple of the barrel sauna builders also offer a bunkie option.

This option would make a great spare bedroom for a tiny house or a small office. Also the barrel sauna can be easily transported by trailer and some are even offered as mobile saunas for rent.

Here are three of my favorite barrel sauna builders:

No need for the trailer, just roll it down the road!

Lick the walls to frequently, and you might catch a buzz….

Great looking- very simple idea- I’d imagine it’d be hard to come by barrels like that though…

Which companies build bunkie versions?

    Hot Stuff Canada offers the option and I would think the others might also if you requested it. I thought I saw it on more than one but will need to do some research.

Very cool!

Although not a house, I would love to see one of these as a stand for selling alcohol (wine, whiskey, and so on).

My mom has a neighbor with one of these. I’ve never seen the inside, but the outside looks really cool. I’m glad to get a peek of what the inside might look like!

I think it is from they show identical coopered sauna models, not the simple cylinder one, but a real barrel sauna.

Always amazed by the design of the tiny houses. I still keep dreaming to have this tiny house one day, plus this barrel tiny sauna on the side.
