Banya buildings can be quite large with a number of different bathing areas or simple wooden cabins like the traditional Finnish cottage saunas. Russian banyas usually have three rooms -a steam room, -a washing room and -an entrance room. The entrance room, called a predbannik or pre-bath, has pegs to hang clothing upon and benches to rest on. The washing room has a hot water tap, which uses water heated by the steam room stove and a vessel or tap for cold water to mix water of a comfortable temperature for washing. The heater has three compartments: a fire box that is fed from the entrance room, the rock chamber, which has a small hole to throw the water into and a water tank at the top. The top of the water tank is usually closed to prevent vapour from infiltrating the banya. Water from a bucket by the stove is poured over the heated rocks in the stove. There are wooden benches across the room. People enter the steam room when the stove is hot, but before water is poured on the rocks. Getting a good sweat is thought to protect and condition the skin from the steam.

Construction features of Russian Banya

Banya is being cutting mostly by the method of cutting into bowl. Banya's surrounding walls are always located horisontal. All logs are barkless, treated to a smooth surface and anticepted. In joints logs are having smooth bowls. This method is called as 'Canadian bowl'. There are two main types 'Canadian bowl': -classical bowl with two bowl logging, - 'brilliant bowl' with four bowl logging. Both bowls have advantage of highest tightness for a long period after being produced.

Banya temperatures often will exceed 93 deg C which equivalent is 199 deg F.

The following trees are used as a raw for Banya construction: pine, cedar and larch. Pine is the most traditional one. It has sufficient density and gummosity which facilitate Banya's durable service. Good Banya is where logs with diameter not less then 35 mm is used. 

Banya is initially fabricated and assembled at a production site. Because of rich wood humidity Banya's building (its wooden logs in an assembled position) are drying slowly and steadily within a period of 12-18 months and still in an assembled form. This construction is called in Russian as 'srub', where similar in English world would be 'blockhouse'. 

During drying blockhouse is passing through two stages. First on is logs drying process. When drying bowls start to show backlash. These can be observed in some bowls (sites of logs connections) and might be seen between logs which forms a wall. On the second stage blockhouse is setting down. During this stage small backlashed dissapears, and bowls are going more stronger by a sort of interlacking forces of wooden parts of the bowl. Structure tense and connection is becoming more tight. When blockhouse is finally set down it is disassembled. Usually it happens not earlier then 10 months. Normally 12-14 months. It is goog to use winter cut log as Banya construction wood, as winter cut logs has utmost minimum of humidity.

Before this process all wooden parts are being marked to enable repeated assembling easy and properly. After being disassembled all wooden logs and parts are organized for a voyage along with invoice, packing list, assembling documentation and phytosanitary certificate. At this stage we also supply with additional materials and equipment if needed. This can be windows, doors, furniture, boiler, etc.

When Banya is finally delivered to its Buyer's site, then an assembling process start again. It is normally practised that experienced carpenter is doing this. It is frequently happens that some joints and logs are being lightly hewed during assembling. Insulater is put through to the bowl and log's joints. This makes construction more hermetic. We can provide our woodworkers for assembling purposes, or experienced carpenter to arrange installation supervision executed by local woodworkers. Of course this work is an additional service which is chargeable and involve noticeable overheads for labour transfer and accomodation in the country of byer. In most of cases crane will be needed for log's shifting and manipulation during assembling.

In most of cases we only supply Banya blockhouse iself, which are walls made of logs with bowls, internal partitions made of wooden logs, pediment. It is up to a byer to decide what additional materials and equipment is needed. We can supply it all together. Foundation must be made on the byer's end prior Banya's assembling.

In case Byer's site has soft like soil we can suggest helical metal made screw piles as as an foundation option. At the same time we suggest byers to reach professionals for a professional overview of geodezical characteristic of soil on the byer's site in terms of screw piles application. Helical screw piles are shown below in the bottom of this page. This type of foundation can be fixed mechanically by engine or manually by skilled professionals. We can supply different types of helical metal screw piles. Metal piles are a good option for small and medium sized houses. They are durable and they are quite strong to afford houses as a foundation if soil allows.  

Russian Banya made of natural wood has cool climate at summer time and comfort warm at winter. Wood is ecological material which is good for human both phsihological and physical. Wood can breathe.
