How Much Does it Cost to Build a Lindal?

posted by Fine Point Cedar Homes    |   February 15, 2020 13:22

 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 LEEDS Certified documentation outlining multiple energy choices! 

Generally, the costs to build in the Prairie Western provinces can run anywhere from in the $250 - $350 or more / SF range, 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.

Zero Energy Home Design - Green Prefab Homes

posted by Fine Point Cedar Homes    |   February 10, 2020 18:04

Zero energy homes are the future for Canadian homeowners. Recently, the Canadian government announced that they would develop a net-zero energy ready model building code, with the goal of provinces and territories adopting it by 2030. 

With these new standards, buildings will become much more energy efficient, use clean electricity, and even generate their own electricity.

Well-designed, efficient buildings are comfortable and healthy – and they save Canadians money on energy bills.

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.
