Sauna into booth?

Could this sauna be used as a vocal booth? Preferably not a permanent or construction-intensive change, but maybe just acoustic treatments? Any advice from some experienced folks would be great. Here are the dimensions:
Ceiling height- 7'
door to back wall- 7'7"
back wall- 6'10.5"
toe of the "L" shape is 3'x3'

The walls and ceiling are solid pine tongue-in-groove boards. The floors are pine strips raised above concrete slab. Any hope for it? Too small?

I don't know why my pics got rotated horizontally. Sorry about that...
The first picture is from outside of the doorway looking in to the back wall. The second with all of the junk piled up is from inside looking into the nook of the "L". The third is from inside, looking back out at the door. Thanks!

how does it sound as is? I've heard of singing in the shower, but have never tried singing in a sauna...

It sounds like a very small space with lots of early reflections. It sounds very sauna-y? haha. The sauna's heating element also produces a springy resonance. I think I'll mic the heater to mix in some some spring reverb. heh.
Just singin' in the sauna,
just singin in the sauna,
what a beautiful feeling
I'm... what rhymes with sauna?

You have a lot to work with here... make sure to send the final "-na" syllable into the spring reverb of the heating element!
