Step 1 – Choose a Location

The first step is to plan the location and size of the cabin. Keep in mind that the rule of thumb for occupancy is five square feet per person. Many pre-built kits will already designate where shower cabin items like tubs, benches, steam area and shower nozzles will be placed but when building from scratch, select whatever design that woks physically for the location you choose and the maximum amount of occupants you decide to host for one session.

Step 2 – Foundation

Determine what type of foundation you want, or need, to install. Pouring a concrete slab is always recommended. However, some simply constructed steam shower cabins can accommodate cinder blocks or decorative stone as long as these are waterproofed.

Step 3 – Framing

Always use dimensional lumber when framing the cabin. Use treated wood if the interior is to be constructed with waterproof lumber such as redwood. If the interior is to be tile or fiberglass, then use untreated wood. However, make sure floor plating is treated wood.

Step 4 – Plumbing and Electric

After all framing is complete, install all necessary electric and plumbing making sure to determine the final location for all shower heads, steam tables and drainage. Choose a water system that allows for variable pressure regulation.

Step 5 – The Heat

Providing additional steam will necessitate installation of a heating element. Depending upon your needs – and your budget – you can select from a simple, central heating unit to the more elaborate digitally controlled heating units that also vary shower effects.

Step 6 – The Interior

Complete the interior with some waterproof material such as redwood. This has been a popular choice creating a “spa-like” atmosphere when building at-home steam shower cabins. However, fiberglass is a good wall protection as is easy to maintain and keep clean.

Step 7 – Install the Extras

Install all the amenities you wish like benches and shelving.
