Here is how I did mine.   A steam generator wired to 220 VAC you can
see the circuit beaker.  The steam outlet, under the shower head.  The
On / off button and  the wet temp control.  Wiring power, control cables
plug and go ( I'm particularly proud of my inset button ).  Plumbing is  just
water in and a drain for cool-down boiler under floor to garden out..  .   A

That is something different of what I had in mind (Finnish Sauna)...The Shower enclosure is getting too steamy..but it seems to be clean and fast solution.
Thanks

Then you must know about

The-Fin-Who-Would-Not-Sauna

"But there was one, a shy young man, and although he was Finnish,

the joys of winter had, for him, long started to diminish.

HE WAS A FINN, THE ONLY FINN,

WHO WOULD NOT TAKE A SAUNA "

It isn't that I can't," he said, "I simply do not wanna.

To jump into a frozen lake is not my fondest wish,

for just because I am a Finn don't mean that I'm a fish."

by Garrison Keillor

The link Steve provided seems to be quite good (I've saved it myself for future reference) but if you are going for a quick and dirty sauna all you need is a shed and some hot rocks. It wont be pretty nor energy efficient nor will it last very long but it will work at least once.
To operate sit in the shed and pour some water over the rocks (rocks can be heated in a fire or oven, just dont do it inside the sauna).

Yes indeed, Steve's link is good.
In the past I did pour water over the rocks, and getting some of gases depending of the rocks used...

Have a good day,

Whilst these guys are trying to sell you their materials (and they're in England anyway) the principles are all sound, and the PDF file in the link is helpful.
