Our wood-fired Tubs emulate the features of a Japanese Ofuro. They were designed primarily for rural settings and have become welcome additions at many remote cabins, lakeside retreats, and country homes. These Tubs allow their owners to enjoy a relaxing soak without pumps, plumbing, or electricity; access to water, a little dry firewood, and the time to enjoy the experience are all that’s required. These Tubs are heated by a unique submersible wood stove; a concept that was developed at the University of Alaska in the 1970’s and improved by our engineers over the past several years. Our stoves have been designed to deliver maximum heating efficiency while occupying a minimum amount of space in the tub. The process of building our stoves emphasizes the same attention to detail inherent in our Tubs; stove parts are cut from marine grade aluminum on computer controlled machinery, each stove is formed and finish welded on precision assembly jigs and finally each stove is pressure tested before being placed in service. Stove and Tub combinations are available to accommodate from two to ten people. Some options and features are available but most owners choose and enjoy the simplicity of the basic models.
