Makeshift sauna?


I recently purchased a home which happens to have a large cedar closet/room (covered entirely in the wood) for fur coats. As it is of no use for me, is there any way I could transform this into a sauna?

I'd get a professional consult on that one. There could be fire safety concerns.

Just because they both have cedar walls, doesn't mean they can do double duty.
The answer is no.
Do a little research on sauna construction and you will see what's required.
