Cordwood Sauna on the Iron Range of Minnesota

Tony and Denise built this beautiful cordwood sauna during their summer weekends.  They felt confident after taking a cordwood workshop.  Visiting their property on Minnesota’s Iron Range they patiently put in the foundation, framed the sauna and then added the cordwood infill.  Finished in the Fall of 2014, they are very pleased with the result of their labors.   Here are some dazzling pictures of the result. Tony and Denise finished sauna
