Small Treasures Home Design

If a smaller home is what suites your lifestyle, then Lindal's Small Treasure home designs are the perfect inspiration for your dream home. Because our homeowners interpret "small" in two ways, our home designs do, too. You'll find the floor plans to these home designs to be small in square footage, and homes with a small footprint—whose dimensions are designed especially to make the most of a small urban lot. Thanks to the cedar home designs made possible by Lindal's post and beam construction, even our smallest cedar homes and cabins have the light-filled interiors and open floor plans for which Lindal is famous.

The Lindal Small Treasures house designs are defined by:

  • Intimate living environment that is big on style,
  • High ceilings and open floor plans,
  • Lower maintenance and energy costs.

This small home plan has much to offer in a compact size. The Banff offers the same amenities as a larger home, with the coziness and warmth of a classic Chalet.

Small Treasures Home Photos by Series

Shingled exterior Chalet home picture Chalet: A little alpine, a little contemporary, a lot of livability—that's the influence behind Lindal's Chalet homes. This timber a-frame style evokes the spacious feel of a larger home while staying true to a small footprint. On the main floor, soaring ceiling heights and a wall of windows create open, light-filled living spaces. Some Chalet post and beam homes have a full second floor with dormers: others have a loft that looks out to a two-story living room and the view beyond. See photos of Chalet homes...

Prow home nestled in wooded landscape Prow: From snow-flocked ski towns to sun-drenched beach communities, Lindal's Prow homes have become coveted landmarks of the good life. With their steeply pitched roofs and prow fronts of glass, you get a front row seat to panoramic views and an interior with the ever-changing magic of natural light. These small Prow home plans often include a dormer on the second floor, and you can always add another one, and it's easy to add a wing or even two. See photos of Prow homes...

Warmly lit great room seen through prow windows Summit: Summit homes make a dramatic statement inside and out. Their signature: a distinctive roof that rises from gently sloping sides to a soaring peak. The prow of glass with post and beam architecture opens the living and dining spaces to floor-to-ceiling views. Interior space is designed for an easygoing flow that combines both warm, cozy places with open, airy spaces. If and when you want to expand your timber frame home, it's easy to add a wing.
