The unique Japanese bath ofuro is no longer a curiosity: companies such as Caminos (g. Dnepropetrovsk) offer the construction of an ofuro bath on the site and even in one of the rooms of a private house. Ofuro breaks all stereotypes and is radically different from all known baths and saunas. The device of the Japanese bath implies the presence of two containers:
Furako – a round wooden barrel filled with water, heated by a stove, which is located here, in the center of the container. The average volume of the container is 1300-1600 liters of water, with a height of 110-130 cm. and diameter 1500-1600 mm. Its weight will reach 200-300 kilograms. It is preferable to order such a barrel with delivery and turnkey installation than to make it yourself.
Ofuro – a square container filled with sawdust, which is heated by a stove located under the bottom of the box, up to 45-50 0C. Preference is given to cedar or linden sawdust.
You can buy high-quality ofuro or furaco inexpensively, which are manufactured in accordance with all the rules and using special technology, on the Caminos website. The cost of the container will depend on its volume and type of wood. The most popular type of wood for production is oak, cedar, Siberian larch. In the manufacture of containers, only wood is used: metal and plastic elements can harm the skin and health in general.
The Japanese bath has advantages over other baths known to us: there are no age or health restrictions here. And the procedure itself cleanses the skin so much and cleanses the body of toxins that the benefits of such a procedure are practically invaluable.
Designing is the first stage of OFURO construction on the site. Now it is important to take into account such characteristics as a place for the sauna, its size and equipment of the sewer and ventilation system, water supply and electricity. The home sauna should be well ventilated to avoid decay of wood, the formation of a fungus. Heating should be autonomous so that the sauna can work in the summer when the heating of the house is disabled.
At the second stage, it is necessary to equip the foundation. Regardless of the type of soil, the columnar option is most often used. This design is not only cheap, but also reliable.
The Japanese ofuro bath is built from a log cabin of a tree or from other building materials, the shortcomings of which are covered by a wooden inner lining. Caminos uses aspen or linden, less often poplar, the price of which is an order of magnitude lower than other wood.
It is inexpensive to order a turnkey Japanese bath ofuro from the company /, which has a photo of already completed projects.
