I would like it to be understood that I love the end result and I am very impressed with the support I have received. Any negative comments are merely suggestions to improve an already good product.
The delivery went well with the delivery driver being very accommodating. However, there was confusion over what we had received. It was good practice to see that the driver took photographs of the delivery. The delivery note contained part numbers, the various boxes did not. It was therefore not clear whether we had received everything. Shortages and breakages were swiftly dealt with by the support team.
I felt that I needed to use the support team to supplement the instruction manual. It only contained pictures. Downloading the online version meant that it was a little clearer in colour but still no words. A few words detailing what was needed from the various flue sections would have been helpful when making up the stove. We received a number of additional superfluous sections that only muddied the waters during assembly. Fitting the shingles to a barrel is not quite like any other structure and a few words of guidance would have prevented at least one of my emails, of what to do with the rectangular pieces of felt that accompanied the shingles.
The delivery included a small tin but there were no instructions of what it was for. It was not clear whether it would be safe to use inside the sauna. Whilst waiting for the wood to swell (without the felt fitted) due to the very hot and dry conditions this Summer, the barrel got quite wet inside. This caused the bench and floor sections to sprout black mould after only 2 weeks. A few words indicating what could be safely painted would have helped there also.
All in all I found the construction very satisfying and the additional wall logs came in handy when I found that I needed to manufacture a larger than standard last piece to fill the 30mm gap at the top (this seemed to be due to the very dry conditions).
The sauna received admiring comments from many friends who have seen it and it is a very robust construction. The small inconveniences did not detract from the enjoyment I received in building it and the pleasure I have in its final appearance and its use.

Ordering the sauna was very easy, I was kept informed about delivery dates and times and the driver was very helpful. Assembly instructions were very good and it went together very well. Installing the Harvia wood burner was easy and we have been enjoying saunas for several weeks. A very well designed sauna.

Delivery was straight forward although the chimney had been missed off. A call to tuin and this was all sorted out. The Sauna only took a day to put and was very straight forward to put together. We have been enjoying sauna in it already.

Just wanted to compliment you on a really great product- the builder said he couldn't fault the design in any way and was very impressed with the solidity and rigidity of the structure. It is already in regular use and being much enjoyed

I ordered my barrel fully assembled, it arrive on a large lorry and with some effort we got it onto position. Come the evening I was enjoying my sauna after chopping my own timber. I was in my element and very pleased. I have had to treat it to make it last and I'm pleased now I'm done.

A lovely Sauna and good people to deal with.
