Premium Materials. Efficient Design. Personal Service.

We take pride in the 72-year Lindal heritage. With over 50,000 homes built by Lindal on almost every continent and in every climate and site location imaginable, there are few if any issues we haven’t dealt with when it comes to home design and construction. Our hallmarks are careful home planning, premium and sustainable building materials, and an efficient, predictable system for design and delivery of your home package. In our office and in the field, we work together as a team. Our goal is to ensure your successful experience through the entire process.

Design Build Services

If you are looking for a new home in Michigan or Indiana, consider a custom house. Lindal homes can be built on urban infill lots in the city and modified to meet size requirements and other restrictions. Before or after you buy land, we can walk the site with you and discuss the best location for your home, one that takes advantage of the natural flow of air and light. You can choose any of our new home designs from our plan books. Our professional drafters and home designers will work with you to tailor existing home plans to your needs.

Home Styles & Floor Plans

Home styles include:

  • Small homes and accessory dwelling units (ADUs and DADUs) starting under 500 square feet.
  • Urban, contemporary homes for city lots
  • Classic homes with prow fronts and high-pitched roofs
  • Modern glass houses and mid-century modern styles
  • A line of mid-century-modern inspired homes by OM Studio.
  • House plans can be modified to add a basement, additional bedrooms, garage, decks or sunrooms.

All Lindal homes feature open floor plans, made possible by our post-and-beam building system. View our plan books free online to see the full range of home styles and floor plans available to you. And remember, any home style or plan can be custom-tailored to your specifications.

The Lindal Architects Collaborative

Rather than hunting for a residential architect to design your new home, we invite you to preview the work of the Lindal Architects Collaborative (LAC). The LAC offers architect-designed homes at a price far below what an architect would charge for a custom home design. The top-tier residential architects with whom we partner include Turkel, Bates Masi, Marmol Radziner, and the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Our architect-designed houses have been featured in Dwell magazine.
