10 Reasons Why Lindal Stands Above the Rest - Part 2

posted by Fine Point Cedar Homes    |   June 18, 2019 14:48

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.

Building Green is Who We Are!

posted by Prairie Cedar Homes    |   January 4, 2019 15:38

For nearly 70 years, Lindal Homes has been creating, designing and delivering custom homes for many types of environments. Our commitment to the environment is through the use of a renewable resource; younger timber stands. For over 20 years, Lindal has been replacing the trees they use in their homes! We have planted well over 100,000 trees in the names of our clients in partnership with the American Forests Global ReLeaf Program!

As your dedicated Lindal Dealers, we take the time to visit your land site. We help you with ideas to create an environmentally intelligent site plan that considers the lay of the land, the existing vegetation, and your regional climate, while also taking into consideration the path of the sun, wind velocity in your area, snow load, and seismic activity.  We understand what it takes to design and build energy efficient homes.

Some things that we offer our clients to ensure they build an environmentally friendly home are:

  • Solar gain, controlled by overhangs or natural vegetation, reduces energy consumption and creates happy sunbathed homes;
  • Natural ventilation maintains air quality and reduces cooling costs;
  • Our Lindal building system is a refined assembly of components designed to be used together, enhancing structural integrity and reducing infiltration;
  • Our Lindal Homes are created with engineered building products which are stronger and consume less material;
  • Our Lindal Green package specifications include advanced framing, Energy Star™ rated cedar-framed windows with energy efficient glazing, and other resource efficient upgrades. Well-considered options enable you to tailor the components to the climatic conditions of your site and to your own desire to build green, such as geo-thermal heating, and solar panels.

At Lindal, we believe that your home, including the nature surrounding it, is a piece of art that must be maintained. Let us build your dream home and see the Lindal 'green' difference.  

The Imagine Series - Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Homes

posted by Prairie Cedar Homes    |   December 12, 2018 10:00

We are so excited with the announcement of Lindal's new partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to bring our clients Lindal's new Imagine Series.

The Lindal Imagine Series is a reflection of Frank Lloyd Wright's principles - they are considerate to Usonian design, while still being able to meet the demands of everyday contemporary living. The Imagine Series is able to unify Wright's design principles of his Usonian homes with the current developments in construction and design theory. The end result is beautiful, functional homes that express the way people live today.

Every home in the Imagine Series homes is aesthetically beautiful, modest in size, and filled with light. They have been designed to seamlessly integrate with their surroundings. They become part of the beautiful landscape that surrounds them. These homes use natural materials and contain open floor plans with walls of glass to achieve maximum spaciousness. 

The design principles of the Lindal Imagine Series homes are open floor plans to ensure you can entertain and enjoy your surroundings, they are built low to the ground with sloped roofs, they boast floor-to-ceiling windows and natural building materials, these homes are filled with natural light due to the amount of windows, they are also strategically orientated on your lot to take advantage of the sun and wind allowing them to be extremely energy efficient, and lastly, these homes are flexible and can be customized to meet your needs. 

These are truly one of a kind homes that are able to become one with nature. What are you waiting for?
