A self sufficient sauna in the desert
for passers by

Self sufficient sauna constructed in the desert to be used by chance passers by is an impractical construction placed in a non functional, not populated environment, an empty space - the desert. However, it is nice to think that in the middle of nowhere, there is a small luxury waiting to be used, a place for relaxing, a kind of upgraded shelter from harsh weather.
Sauna should depend completely on alternative energy sources (solar energy system and a water recycling system). Solar batteries will produce power for the heater in the sauna, electrical lightning in the sauna and the shower room and a distillation processing of used water from the shower. Distillated water will then be mixed with the rain water collected in the main water tank.
