Building a Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Home in Calgary

Building A Custom Home in Calgary

 

There are so many reasons to build a custom home in Calgary. Calgary has beautiful neighborhoods, the mountains are less than 2 hours away, and of course, there is Stampede! Another reason is that interest rates are the lowest they have been in decades.

 


Imagine Series - Lindal Homes

 

Another great reason to build or start planning your custom home in Calgary is that you can build a Lindal Imagine home. Lindal Cedar Homes has partnered with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to launch this fantastic new series of homes. These houses are inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian homes and have been updated for modern living. These Usonian homes were built to be affordable and customizable to the middle class, many of these houses are single level, which means less to heat in the cold Calgary winters! They emphasize functional floor plans, low-pitched roofs, and deep overhangs.

 

 

When building your Frank Lloyd Wright Inspire home, you will be able to choose from seven different designs, all premium materials pre-engineered, and coming with a lifetime warranty to give you peace of mind. These homes are also pre-fab, meaning all you have to do is choose and finalize your design with Doug or Barb and buy your plot of land. Your home will be shipped there and assembled on your property!

 

 

For the new series, Lindal wanted the home designs to meet the needs and lifestyles of today's families, deeply rooted in Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Organic Architecture' principles of harmony, sustainability, and integration with nature. These homes are designed with spaces for quiet reflection and exuberant celebration.

How Much Does it Cost to Build a Lindal?

 Thanks again for your interest in Lindal.  I fully understand how you love our Lindal designs, as we have been designing and selling and building these beautiful quality homes for 20 years now!  We look forward to working with you to create your beautiful new Lindal Home to meet your wishlist, but starting first with your budget expectations, and knowing what you want.  Kind of like asking us to buy your groceries for you.....Does that make sense? 

If you would like to start building in the next 2 – 3 years, it would be a good idea to start designing and planning at least 12 months prior to construction start, which gives you ample time to make decisions.  No rush decisions! 

If you are looking to place your home on a basement or crawl space, or on a slab, all these choices makes a difference in costs.  The energy codes for Canada are ever changing, and we design to meet and exceed these codes if you prefer to be prepared for Net Zero 2030 in Canada.  So we can give you the options, and you can decide!  Offering our LEED Certified documentation outlining multiple energy choices! 

Generally, the costs to build in the Prairie Western provinces can run anywhere from in the $250,000 - $350,000 or more / SF range, move-in ready; whether stick frame or our patented exclusive Structurally Engineered Post and Beam building system.  The LINDAL DIFFERENCE is that we offer triple grade materials, kiln dried, a cut above; backed by our exclusive warranty -  the industry’s only Lifetime Structural Warranty!   We also use our Architecturally designs with 3D Modeling and Design process, so you know what your home looks like and give you guaranteed costs before a shovel hits the ground!  We like to start with a target budget for our clients, and design the Lindal package around those expectations, as there are many options to choose from within our Lindal store – windows (30+ difference options); interior and exterior doors – hundreds of choices.  A French door  compared to a lift and slide can be a difference of $25,000. + .  We have Construction Home Warranty as well, and source competent and quality trades, for best pricing, vetting their references and qualifications.  You choose your interior finishing, for example, whether cabinets from IKEA or Rona or custom craftsman…all up to you!  We offer you the best way to build - making your choices for your lifestyle and your wallet.

 When considering your budget target, consideration for utility availability and hook up costs for septic, well, excavation, power sources, and basement choices that you may want.  Geotechnical Engineering study and survey reports, local engineering and so forth.  Permitting costs, Taxes and contingency costs, as well as security considerations while during construction; refuse control and access to the site.  Landscaping and exterior decks, or pergolas for outdoor living!

We can design any roof line on any floor plan, our copyright plans can be recreated for your unique wishes, smaller or larger; adding or removing living space.  Do you want an additional living suite for elderly family or Additional Living Unit (ADU), this is a great option to have for rental accommodations.  But if not needed, we can create this into another bedroom or office or remove altogether.  We will work with your budget expectations, step by step, fully transparent, with guaranteed contracts!

Why Choose Lindal Architects? Design-Supply-Build

Aesthetically beautiful, spacious and light filled homes.  Our designs are thoughtfully designed to integrate seamlessly with all surroundings, whether urban or rural.

There are advantages in using our Lindal structural system, as opposed to local lumber and building a "stick frame build" ......

  • The ability to have larger open spaces, using our Post and Beam building system, natural structurally engineered laminated FIR, with that backing of our Lifetime Warranty as mentioned above.  The alternative to cold steel, our Post and Beams can be visually exposed, or embedded into the structure.
  • All framing materials, are SPF KILN dried, and of triple grade quality ensuring laser straight walls
  • The opportunity to have your designs worked through our 3D designing process, all included in the Lindal materials package. 
  • The full design once approved by you, our client, moves to full Preliminary Permit plans, to full engineering, and then to our LEEDS Certified Energy professional, to prepare the documentation required for the building Permits.  Once Building Permit is approved, we continue with Full Construction with our specialized local Trades and Contractors, and prepare for your delivery date that you propose.
Backed by 75 years of Lindal’s world wide experience, Lindal is the worlds largest manufacturer of Custom homes, shipping around the world.   Lindal is a leader in home design, engineering, quality materials, and customer service, and all Lindal Homes are backed by an industry-exclusive Lifetime Structural Warranty.

WHAT - NO Cedar you Say?

David Vandervort 2270     

No longer building Solid Cedar - for over 40 years now.....YES ITS TRUE.  Lindal is a leader in home design, engineering, quality materials, traditionally carried out through independent Business Owners - like us, Barb and Doug Pocha.....Lindal has been around for 75 years.....as always, nothing stays the same! 

Our building system is FIR Glulaminate KILN Dried Engineered post and beams structure - allowing you wide open spaces, warmer and beautiful, an option to cold STEEL!  The industry's ONLY Lifetime Structural Warranty.  You have so many options and choices to work in any budget range!  But you may want some Cedar!  You may want to choose our beautiful clear kiln dried CEDAR for under a patio, or perhaps for your soffits, or ceiling liner to create a warm cozy room in a loft ceiling.  Our CEDAR trim for your windows and baseboards is an option, or perhaps you would prefer FIR or HEMLOCK?  Your siding options could be an aluminum, or concrete composite siding (50 year warranties!). or perhaps placement of our beautiful 4" or 6" Clear Cedar around your grand entry to give it that WOW factor!

From Design to Plans to FULL Construction, Barb and Doug will guide you step by step, in this amazing experience and personal path to living your life in the home you will love!  Check out some of our references here:  click here
