Went and requested the cordwood sauna book - and every other 'how to' sauna book - that our large library system had.
I forget how I wired the one light I had inside (25 watt stove light), but it was simple and cheap. When I moved to north AL, my wood fired sauna was the only building ever moved by Boring (according to my 30 year experienced move specialist), my gun safe was peanuts compared to the sauna.
