sustainable Green Homebuilding

Lindal homes are widely recognized for their relationship to the natural environment, but our commitment goes far beyond capturing breathtaking panoramic views. For us, the goal is to do everything possible to preserve the world that our homes celebrate. Sustainability and environmental stewardship is reflected in everything we do—from design to materials, site selection, building techniques, and beyond. If it’s green prefab homes you’re seeking, Lindal is your ideal partner.

For over twenty years, Lindal Cedar Homes has planted trees to replace those harvested for our homes. Lindal has led green home building efforts in the use of energy efficient windows and detailing, in the use of engineered wood and other sustainable materials. The company has been recognized by local and national news outlets, was the first to be Green Approved by the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center and the only single family home selected for TIME Magazine’s Green Design 100. Lindal’s dealers have received special training to become Certified Green Professionals, and today many Lindal owners choose to build off the grid or seek green certification for their homes.

green from the ground up Corporate Culture

  • Our company has more than 70 years experience designing and delivering green prefab homes for many types of environments.
  • We are committed to using a plentiful, renewable resource from younger timber stands.
  • In nearly 20 years, we have planted over 100,000 trees in the names of our customers in partnership with the American Forests Global ReLeaf program.
  • Our manufacturing process optimizes the use of material in the factory and greatly reduces on-site waste.
  • Lindal has a history of innovation in material planning, we are the recipient of 18 building technology patents, and we maintain an ongoing research and development process.

eco-conscious Planning & Design

  • We will help you create an environmentally-intelligent site plan that considers everything from the lay of the land to existing vegetation and even the microclimate, including the sun and wind.
  • Solar gain, controlled by overhangs or natural vegetation, reduces energy consumption and creates happy, sunbathed homes.
  • Natural ventilation maintains indoor air quality and helps reduce cooling costs.
  • Our team understands what it takes to design and build energy-efficient homes.
  • Lindal professionals and local independent Lindal dealers are familiar with local regulations. Many are  National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) Certified Green Professionals, thoroughly trained in the NAHB’s green home building standards.

energy efficient Fabrication & Construction

  • The Lindal building system is a continually-refined assembly of components that are designed to be used together, enhancing structural integrity and reducing infiltration.
  • Engineered building products are stronger and consume less material.
  • Lindal green prefab homes package specifications include advanced framing, EnergyStar™-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 the site and to your own desire to build green.
  • Prestained siding and other components can use low-VOC stains, if desired.
  • Preassembled interior and exterior rails reduce waste and on-site labor.
  • We provide help with planning for energy-efficient products, both in your Lindal package and beyond the building phase.
  • Your Lindal building package can be delivered in one load, saving time, money, and gas—a major advantage over the many necessary trips to the local lumber yard when you’re not building a Lindal home.
