The Cedarbrook Sauna and Steam Story ...

Cedarbrook Sauna + Steam is a family-owned and factory-direct business. We manufactures sauna rooms and distribute sauna heaters, steam generators, and accessories. Cedarbrook supplies all the components you'll need to construct your own sauna – the plans, tongue and groove western red cedar, pre-hung door, and benches. You can choose either a pre-fabricated sauna (ready to assemble) that can be erected almost anywhere or a precut sauna kit (ready to install) that can line any framed room.

Sweating the Details Since 1971

John Lysaker Founder and Owner — John Lysaker Founder and Owner — Over 40 years ago a bored bank equipment salesman was tired of calling on bankers (sorry you bankers!) and he was sitting in his own sauna—in a sweat thinking about calling on banks the next day.

A light went on (and not the vapor lock light in his sauna) and John Lysaker (founder and owner) thought "I could sell the saunas I've always liked..." Saunas that were easy to install, so I set my mind to it. I started the DIY prefab modular sauna kits, and then the DIY precut home sauna kits. Built my first sauna for resale in 1971. View this page DIY Sauna Kit Guide page to understand the differences.

John Henry Founder of Cedarbrook Sauna + SteamMy mother growing up in Northern Minnesota said (after us brothers saunaed, rolled in the snow and jumped into a hole in the ice in the lake", and afterwards you always sleep like a baby". Making it even easier to research, my wife Betty was a Pan American flight attendant and I could fly to Finland (the home of saunas) for $10 (employee/spouse discount). John visited several factories brought home some heaters and placed an add in the local Little Nickel classified paper out of a home office and the rest is history.
