Bizline: Saunas and more

Summit Daily/Mark Fox

Q: What type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?A: Colorado Custom Saunas provides Scandinavian wet/dry saunas, heat therapy rooms, professional custom carpentry, maintenance and property management services.Q: Where are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?A: I am originally from Michigan where I served as a teacher, coach, athletic director, middle school and high school principal. At the same time, I was a licensed builder doing remodeling and traditional sauna construction. My wife and I moved to Summit County in 2002 taking on principal positions at Summit Middle School and Summit High School. I retired in 2008 believing that the natural sauna bath has many more health benefits than the hot tub experience. Saunas are used for recreational and therapeutic purposes, and for physical and emotional well-being.Q: What experience do you have in this field?A: Ten years as a licensed builder in Michigan doing renovations, home additions, repair and maintenance. We specialize in custom design and construction of dry/wet saunas and have models in both Michigan and Colorado. Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?A: We are located in Summit County, have direct sauna building experience, provide quality construction, and prompt service. We have served Summit County as educators and now hope to provide a new option for improved health and relaxation.Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County?A: We hope to reach customers who want to regularly experience the sauna benefits at home in their personal sauna. When used appropriately, sauna users report pain relief, weight loss, cardiovascular conditioning, detoxification, improved immune system, greater skin care, and a way to relax. Summit County residents are ecologically aware, athletic, and extreme competitors. Europeans in urban and alpine communities have been enjoying sauna benefits for centuries. Summit County residents can now have their own personal sauna for as little as $3,000 (infrared) or $6,000 (traditional).Q: Why did you choose to open where you did?A: I am a local and have worked and lived in the community. Summit County is the best place we have ever lived. We left Detroit and plan on staying in Frisco. Q: What are your plans for your company’s future?A: Complete an upcoming job scheduled as part of a remodel later this fall. Work with builders and homeowners designing traditional or infrared sauna applications in new or existing construction. Promote access and frequent use of the home sauna for improved health and relaxation.
