All About Indoor Saunas w. Expert Alan Jalasjaa

Welcome to the second half of the two-part ‘everything you need to know’ when building, buying, or installing a residential sauna episode! Previously, we focused on the outdoor sauna, and now we turn our sights indoors.

In this episode of Kivia: The Spirit of Sauna, our expert Alan Jalasjaa is at your service.  With an abundance of experience, he knows what to consider, what to avoid, and what to do when it comes to the addition of a residential sauna or infrared cabinet.

Before you take a hammer to that nook under the stairs, or you run out and buy a unit, spend this time with Alan and Elissa and arm yourself with some invaluable intel. Elissa is going to lob a slew of questions at Alan, and we are certain that by the end of this episode, you’ll feel confident about adding an indoor sauna to your home. You’ll learn how to choose between infrared units and electric, what options there are when it comes to DIY kits, pre-fabricated units, custom design, and so much more!

If you choose to DIY, Alan is at the ready with the insight you’ll need! For example, which construction materials require some sourcing, and which you can pick up at your local hardware store.

Alan has been in this business long enough to know that there is a lot of truth in the old adage: measure twice, cut once.  Of course, if you still have questions or want to run something by the expert, email Alan at
