We have recently completed our Lindal home on Whidbey Island and are so completely satisfied we felt the need to write you about our experience.

Prior to our decision to buy a Lindal, we went back and forth for about 5 years trying to decide if the product was truly that much better than other forms of building products. We were fortunate to get in touch with John Fitzpatrick and he very clearly and patiently spent time with us so that we were able to make our decision. For the next several months John worked with us on our design, on which products would best suit our dreams and our budget, and listened very carefully so that he was able to translate much of what we were saying into actual building plans.

We are so happy with the results, the process, the support and the entire experience of building a home which we attribute to John Fitzpatrick and the product Lindal Cedar Homes delivers.

We special designed the layout as none of the models did everything we wanted. The prow model did not provide a good passage from the kitchen to the bedrooms without walking through the living room so we modified the 12/4 pitch house by pushing the center forward. The house was built on a radiant slab and has been really wonderful. We ski and visit daughter Jill several times a year who lives in the house with husband Chet and 2 children. Actually, Son Tad was 19 at the building time and acted as the general.  He with 2 sisters and Carol’s boyfriend did a major part of the construction. Some electric and plumbing were farmed out, but they did most of the construction. It is a fabulous house on a 40-acre plot looking over Snowmass and a 20-mile mountain vista. We call Glenwood Springs CO the home address but it is 12 miles out of town at 8000 ft.

Plenty of Space

Owning a home is far different from owning a townhouse!  Building our home has been a lot of work for the 2 of us, especially when we both work full time with very little time off.  The end result has been very rewarding and our hard work has surely paid off!!

When we decided we were going to build a custom home, Joe already knew he wanted a Lindal.  For years he had always talked about wanting a Lindal Cedar Home.  We both have the same likes and dislikes, so we knew exactly what we wanted.

We wanted to build a “one of a kind home” that would be very unique.  By modifying the Lindal Designer plan we were able to meet our needs and Lindal gives you the flexibility to create your very own dream home.  We now have our home with plenty of living space and everyone who comes to visit always compliments on the warmth of our Lindal home and how different it is from anything else they have seen.  Our home is airtight to drafts and very well insulated which has provided us with a snug, warm home with energy costs at a minimum.

We love everything about our home!  The beauty and warmth of the cedar, the open beamed ceiling, open concept and quality of our Lindal home.  We enjoy those precious moments of relaxation in our sunroom enjoying the beauty of nature outside.

We are most pleased we chose Lindal! It is all we hoped it would be! It’s a dream come true and we are pleased to recommend Lindal Cedar Homes to anyone who asks, and many people have!

Sincerely yours,

Joe Kovi & Barbiche, New Jersey

Fast Design and Delivery

Highest of accolades to the entire team! Just five weeks after deciding to build our dream home, our site was ready and the structure was immediately delivered. Four days later, our home was completely closed in ready for interior finishing.

Long Term Love

We searched and searched for the right package, but when came to Lindal we knew nothing else could compare. After 3 children and 6 grandchildren and 20 years later we think we made the right choice. Thanks Lindal.

This home is really the expression of our lifelong dream. Anyone who visits is truly in awe – and so are we.

Flexible Design

When we came to Harpers Ferry to check out real estate prices we had no intention of building anything.  The Lindal office happened to be above the Tourist information office, so out of curiosity we checked it out.  Bingo!

What I like is the setting, and the fact that all our ideas were incorporated.  It is truly a manifestation of the feelings we had about the design, decoration, and ambience.  I love the feel of solid cedar, the quality of light from having so many windows and skylights, and the harmonious feeling that comes from the quadrant, or symmetry of design, which I feel offers simplicity and orderliness that blends well with our environment.  We wanted our home to fit as unobtrusively as possible into the landscape.

It was a fascinating, challenging, and educational process to be involved in.  We learned so much, not just about building a home, but a lot about ourselves in the course of making so many decisions.  It was a profound and memorable experience.

Sincerely,

Bronwen

After living in a traditional log home and dealing with cracking, leaking, and bug infestation (not to mention the lengthy, costly building process), we were anxious to find an alternate way of log home living. Thank you Whisper Creek for giving us the look and feel of a hand crafted home but without the inherent problems of a traditional log structure!

Living Space

We started looking at plans of log homes prior to Lindal.  We were trying to find a rustic but simple and comfortable home.  The first plans we did were a modified version of one of your stock plans.  Being a contractor, we usually modify most of our spec homes so this was a natural for us.  I think I can honestly say we use 100% of this house as opposed to most that several areas are unused.

The best part of our home is that we enjoy views out of every window and every portion of the deck.  Building materials that we purchased from you were excellent and a pleasure to work with.  On the whole, our dealer was also very helpful.  Their help was much appreciated.  We have when the opportunity presents itself suggested Lindal to several people – I’ve even tried to obtain custom build jobs by showing our home.  Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Frank Hurlbutt

 

Lindal Dealer was Perfect

Building my Lindal home was a great experience. Roger Johnson and I worked well together – he coordinated the building process perfectly.  Roger works well under pressure and is a pleasure to work with.  My home is energy efficient and a great place to live.

What Would We Change?

We love our Lindal home. What would we change? Not one thing.

Long Distance Project

As we live far away in Germany it was very important to us that we had reliable people at the building site and I must say that Andy and Michelle did an excellent job. I can certainly recommend Andy Harrington and the Lindal company to everybody who plans to build an exceptional home on a tropical island.

Reliable and Accurate

We are very pleased with our Lindal Cedar Home.  We did not go through a dealer, but worked with the national sales office to purchase our home, they were always prompt in returning my calls and in supplying any information I needed.  I soon learned that I could count on them for reliable and accurate information.

Sincerely,

Wayne Ristine

Superior Work and Materials

Based on my more than 40 years experience as the senior executive in charge of design and construction for Georgia Tech and Appalachian State University I am confident that the Lindal Cedar Home I purchased is superior in terms of both workmanship and materials to all other products of a similar nature.
