A floating sauna-shelter in Norway (as a tiny house/cabin concept?)

T-MINUS 5 days until our “Relaxshacks.com Tiny-House Building (Hands-On) Workshop” in Stoughton, MA- I can’t wait, and have been prepping like mad! The weather is supposed to clear by the weekend too! No complaints here!

This project was featured in the pretty-darn-wild book “XS FUTURE: New Ideas, Small Structures” by Phyllis Richardson- I’ve linked it below so you can check out more on it…

THE FLOATING SAUNA

Photographically I just love this, and the overall idea is just fun/unique as well- its a floating sauna cube, where two holes serve as the access to this tiny space, and the means, or exit, to cool off. Yes, there is another entrance too, one you don’t have to swim through….
    This simple. yet artsy n’ slick sweat shelter, was designed by Marco Casagrande, a man with a last name not befitting such a small structure….

I not only like it as a sauna, but because of its potential to be a great tree house- one that would allow in lots of natural light!

You can barely see it in the photo above, but the wood stove IS strapped down to the structure by means of steel cables- this way, if a wave, of wake, were to upset and jostle the structure, the wood stove wouldn’t tip over. Very smart.

CHECK out Phyllis Richardson’s book (and MINE!) below🙂
