There are a lot of reasons you may want to build a small domicile on your property.

Maybe you need a space in your backyard for quiet reflection. 

Maybe you want a remote retreat in the woods or on the edge of a precipice where no one can find you.

Either way, bonus points if your hideout is warm, promotes health and is teeming with minimalist Scandinavian design.

The System S Sauna is a free-standing sauna from The Backcountry Hut Company that takes its inspiration from Nordic culture. Use it as your personal après ski warming hut, make it part of your wellness routine, or just throw one in your backyard for a little well-deserved tranquility.

The Backcountry Hut Company has made a few other outdoor dwellings, including an A-frame shelter and a modular cabin that can be assembled in one week. But neither opens up your pores like this 8x10 sauna. It's lined with cedar and sports a two-level bench inside that comfortably seats six adults, and fortunately for anyone without an engineering degree, it arrives on site fully constructed and ready to connect to your existing electrical systems.

The structure is built to withstand extreme weather conditions, and the internal heating system will keep you toasty in even the harshest winters. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view outside the large, double-glazed window while the dry heat envelops you.

Of course, this isn't an interrogation room. So the outside world (deer, squirrels, nosy neighbors) can also see inside that window.

You've been warned.
