ABOUT SAUNABUILDER

At SaunaBuilder, we design and build the highest-quality, handcrafted saunas, creating a space that slows time, brings presence and fosters meaningful connections with others.

We do this because the ritual of sauna bathing has had a profound impact on our lives and we want to share this gift with you. Come reconnect in the warmth of the sauna.

The inspiration for SaunaBuilder started on the shores of Longbow Lake in northwestern Ontario. The offgrid Robertson family cabin had a wood burning sauna located just steps away from the lake. The sauna was a gathering place for close family and friends and connected everyone in a daily routine of transitioning from the intense heat of the sauna to the cool waters of the lake. Round after round of hot to cold, memories were formed and a sauna enthusiast was born!
SaunaBuilder’s goal is to bring the lakeside hot/cold sauna experience to homes across North America. We now have an incredibly talented team of amazing people that work to design and build the highest quality authentic saunas and cold plunge tubs. Our building operation and showroom is proudly based out of Calgary, Alberta nestled against the rugged rocky mountains.

Near What Our Happy Customers Say

Andrew and his team at sauna builder did an absolute fantastic job with our sauna. From the design to the finished product, the process went very smoothly with saunabuilder.Our family uses the sauna several times a week and it has been such a great addition to our property. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a sauna in Alberta.
John Morris
I had such a positive experience with Andrew and Saunabuilder.ca.I came across their website while researching the idea of building my own sauna and left a message. He personally contacted me and we set up a virtual consultation. Genuine, sincere, and professional. He talked me through my vision, asked excellent questions, and was honest with his recommendations. It was very comfortable without any pressure. Unfortunately with my current budget I decided to put off the custom build I was hoping for but Andrew was encouraging, offered advice and guidance on how I might consider doing the work myself, and even steered me clear of a few critical design mistakes I would have made without his knowledge and expertise.Rare to see this kind of customer relations now a days.If you are even just considering a sauna don’t hesitate to contact this company! You won’t regret it. I would highly recommend.

Paul Wiebe
Andrew and his crew were great to work with. The custom sauna was built on site, and left a clean work space. Thanks Andrew for the amazing workmanship. Our clients are exited to start using it.
Mike Perkovic
My wife and I had Andrew and his team build us a sauna and cold plunge for our backyard. When I first spoke with Andrew, I was impressed with his knowledge and passion for the work he does. As we worked through the process of getting everything completed I was happy to see his crew carries the same passion for what they do.I am obsessed with the final product. Andrew gently pushed us in the direction of a wood burning stove over electric and I am so happy that’s the direction we went. The build quality is top notch and the final product is beautiful.Thank Andrew!
Fred Hamilton
Finding the sweet spot between quality and price in the sauna-building game is like chasing a unicorn. When a wood supplier pointed me to Sauna Builders, I was curious but careful. Did my homework, made some calls.Then I met Andrew and his crew.Communication? Top-notch. They’re real, honest, and keep their promises. You can tell Andrew’s all about saunas and really gets his customers.Quality? Super impressed. Their attention to detail is on point, and they’re open to tweaks to make things perfect.Would I vouch for Sauna Builders? For sure. Unless my kid starts building saunas. But hey, parents will be parents, right?
Tony Nicastro
