posted by Prairie Cedar Homes    |   November 28, 2019 18:34

Lindal Polaris

In partnership with many world renowned architects, including our partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the School of Architecture at Taliesin, we have created various series of designs, 

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

As your Local Business owners, we offer full construction with our Building Teams.  Because we have been Lindal Dealers for 20 years, we have built up our construction teams right across the West, offering competitive pricing with trades and contractors in your area.  We are your advocates also - removing and adding trades if needed to give you the results you need!  Backed by Lindal's Lifetime Structural Warranty, and our Progressive Home Warranty, we've got you covered!

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.

If you enjoyed Part One of our top TEN REASONS on how Lindal delivers the Preeminent Custom "Pre-Fab" Home better than anyone else, then you're going to love Part Two!

6) Collaboration! We pride ourselves on being able to design our clients' homes to fit their lifestyle while also being architecturally sound and beautiful. Throughout Lindal's history, they have partnered with renowned architects. Today, our partnership with Turkel Design, the leading firm of the Lindal Architects Collaborative and the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Taliesin, coupled with our design team, ensures our clients receive signature designs without compromise, designs that are personalized and efficiently delivered, allowing us to reduce your cost and the time required to go from vision to move-in. 

7) Quality! We are so confident in the quality of our building components, that we offer our clients a Lifetime Structural Warranty, the industry's only such warranty! Our legendary prefab homes are made with refined wooden components and specialty items curated to complement their style. Our wood is crafted from Pacific Northwest lumber, which is valued worldwide for its unequaled quality. Our quality shines through the houses we've built, the audible approval from local contractors who take delivery of your Lindal package, and most importantly, through the smiles we see when our clients walk through their front door. 

8) Modernity! Our proven ability to create homes that celebrate their natural environments is one of the essential elements of modernity. Through the flexibility of the system's parts and a broad menu of material options allow our homes to be flexible, efficient, and have environmental responsiveness. The integration of design, materials and price allow us to create a custom design, while also predicting turnkey cost in a fraction of the time and cost that would be required by other prefab and traditional builders.

9) Relaxed Warmth! The beauty of a Lindal Home comes from our patented post and beam system; our clients can essentially create a house with ZERO walls. Lindal interiors are recognized for their stunning transparency. The natural environment surrounding you becomes an important part of everyday home life. Through the use of beautiful Douglas fir beams, golden cedar to line the underside of sweeping roofs, soaring windows and modern trim styles, our homes have been described as "relaxed, restful, soothing, and radiant". 

10) Caring Personalized Service! When you're planning and building a new home, you need a coordinated team of skilled professionals - architectural designers, structural and civil engineers, estimators, specification writers, on-site construction experts, and project management teams to name a few. As your Lindal dealer, we work with you through numerous site visits and face-to-face meetings to ensure that your vision comes to life. No other prefab producer provides our level of local expertise and project coordination. Our ability to provide truly personalized solutions to clients' needs and the demands of their building sites is the strength behind our worldwide success.

10 Reasons Why Lindal Stands Above the Rest - Part 1

posted by Western Cedar Homes    |   June 6, 2019 15:45

Are you ready to build your home? Are you wondering how our homes and service differ from the rest? 

We have our top TEN REASONS on how Lindal delivers the Preeminent Custom "Pre-Fab" Home better than anyone else! 

1) Experience! Barb and Doug Pocha have been planning, designing and building Lindal Homes for over 19 years and have been recognized as one of Lindals' Top Dealers since 2006! They have built homes in every climate Western Canada has thrown at them, on every type of terrain and in all jurisdictions! Barb and Doug are also backed by Lindal Homes' experience! Lindal Homes has designed and produced over 50,000 homes and has been the modern systems-built home of choice for more consumers than all other prefab homes combined! That is good to know when you're making one of life's biggest investments! 

2) Flexibility! Our team is able to respond to the natural features of your building site; we are able to make the most out of your views and sunlight, we work with your building site, not against it. We provide you with our Red-Carpet Service, bringing in our LEED certified specialists to ensure that your home is designed efficiently, saving you on energy costs in the future. Our homes are designed for every climatic condition, with a range of architectural styles, from modern to arts and crafts. We vow to design your home with your lifestyle needs, large or small, within mind, and do so within your budget!

  3) Efficiency! One of the most important resources you          have is time. We recognize that being efficient with our        time reduces costs. In just a few weeks, we can guide          our clients from their initial site visits through to their              sketching and pricing in just a few weeks! We have also      enhanced framing efficiency through our patented post        and beam system. The Lindal system emphasizes the          efficient use of all resources - time, material, energy and      human resources - reducing your costs. 

   4) Predictability! We understand that a great design and concept will only become your dream home reality if we can build it on budget. At every phase of your  design, we inform our clients of the evolving cost of their home, enabling you to make adjustments that still suit your needs and wants, within your budget. 

5) Environmentally Responsive! We pride ourselves on being environmentally responsible and building green! We take the time to visit your building site, and help you with ideas to create an environmentally intelligent site plan that allows us to minimize the disturbance on the building site while also sculpting your house to your site. The careful placement of windows and overhangs, and the use of existing vegetation help us to maximize solar performance. By harmonizing the design, the topography, and the prevailing winds, we will be able to provide you with natural summer cooling effects and buffers from the brutal winter winds. Lindals' building system s flexible enough to allow you to create an architecturally stunning home in full harmony with the land surrounding it.
