The wings are flying

The roof of the sauna room and the so called top wing, the upper wall element of the sauna skin structure, were lifted into place with a crane yesterday.

The core roof had to be installed before the wings to complete the sauna heat room. The sauna room will be ready for “löyly” when we’ve build a floor, installed a door and a stove, “kiuas”.

Placing the top wing into its right place was a tricky process. The wall element weighs about half a tonne.

After locking in the top wing into position with a tongue and groove system, it was attached along the long joint with metal straps to strengthen the corner.
