Sometimes squeezing a foam ball just isn't an effective way to deal with stress. So if you're the head of a giant corporation, or even the president of a large country, consider having this self-contained portable sauna at your disposal.

At $41,000 the Sauna Box isn't cheap, but odds are if your stress-busting needs are this extreme, you're probably taking home a fairly decent paycheck for your troubles. Made from recycled shipping containers and a western red cedar interior, the sauna's heated by a traditional wood-fired stove, while lighting, an iPod-compatible stereo, and other amenities are powered by a rooftop solar panel. And here's to hoping they deliver.

That is a ton of money, and I will never be able to buy one, but it does look really appealing.

I'm just trying to figure—is the $41,000 cost roughly equivalent to the cost of the materials and construction? I think it may be. If you could possibly assemble this using your own shop, I think that between the framing materials, the hardware, the finishes, the insulation, the electrical gear, the windows and doors, and the plumbing and ventilation, you'd be well into five figures.

So, fair price?
