I’ve attached a photo of a two-room sauna we built last year. Took 12 days start to finish; raw logs to fire-up. Had a sawmill on site, one logsmith who knew what he was doing and 4 men who know how to move logs and pound nails. Took about 8000 board feet of logs and lumber. This is fired with a good-sized steel wood burning stove, buried in several hundred pounds of rock. It takes about 3 hours to get to somewhere around 200 F.
Is the plan to have a chimney sauna or are you going for more stones and a smoke saun? Several of my friends go on about the benefits of smoke saun and I've been thinking that the rocket stove would lend itself well to that style.
