Taking a queue from an 18th century New England saltbox, the 1770 features an 11 to 12 gable roof. It’s distinctive steep pitch was designed to clear snow accumulation from the roof and is the hallmark of several models. Red cedar shingles with a 10′′ exposure for both the walls and roof are similarly linked to it’s 18th century ancestry. Finally we use multi pain windows to complete this exterior vernacular. Unable to make large glass panes but eager to light their homes, colonists would assemble many small panes tocreate the 18th century picture window. Featured on either of the long elevations, this is yet another distinctive feature of the 1770. The lighting is of the lantern variety and includes an oversized pendant for the epicenter of the structure and sconces for the balance of the house. A riff on an 18th century molding is the featured motif for the door levers.

At the core of the SWELTER HOUSE is the sauna. Our’s is particularly powerfule and socially well considered. With an L-shaped seating arrangement the visitors may face one another which is far more convivial than the “staring-at-a-wall” alternative. Equally important is high-low arrangement. As hear rises, the high bench is designed for a more intense experience, while the low allows one to remain amongst their fellows and take a “breather” so to speak.
The proprietary Sauna Heater has been configured to maintain and be adjustable between 150 and 220 degrees and is designed to optimally heat our 400 cubic foot space. By introducing water to the burner element one can increase the humidity and thereby create a more intense experience at any temperature. It’s the basis of the Nordic Cycle and maybe used in any sauna of similar size in a new construction project or any existing sauna.
Infra-red heat may be provided in lieu of the traditional electric heater. We can discuss this option further in thecomponents section
