Where to Find Canadian Sleeping Barrels

The maximum size for an auxiliary building is 10 sm or about 100 sf without requiring a permit and inspection. It can be any length and width that does not exceed that floor area. If those are outside dimensions (not interior) then yes no permit required.

We now offer a combination barrel sauna / sleeping barrel thanks to our newest client.

It is a barrel sauna with electric heater and benches on both sides, however when company arrives, the center insert is taken from storage and placed in the center making the sauna into a sleeping platform. If the guest gets cold, they simply turn the electric sauna heater on low.
