    Solar sauna

    just Google it

    or go up to your attic, that will give you an idea

    unless you are using solar electric panels for a heater, the sauna would only be operable when the sun has been shining

    Solar-sauna - build your own for less than $80

    We have a loft...not an attic and it is so well ventilated that it is nice and cool....so no good there.

    Google is not my friend.

    I believe the members here are far more knowledgeable and informative and more friendly than google..

    buy 5 sheets of corrugated steel (sangasee?) make a frame from wood, nail the steel to the frame, make a door, nail the last piece on to that,paint it all black, put one of those charcoal bucket type things in there with a wooden chair, and a water bucket and ladle, hey presto!!

    That would not create steam or even the dry heat as the charcoal would not be hot enough to steam up...think they use rocks anyway don't they, not charcoal.....might come out smoked.
