"We are very grateful that we met you, as we started, in 2016, the process of building a house on the Sunshine Coast, in Sechelt, BC. Not only that building in a different province is difficult enough, we had to deal with the constrains imposed on us by the site developer. You helped us from the planning stage, through the completion of the project, preventing us from making costly mistakes. We appreciate the care that you show Barb and Doug, standing by the Lindal product, as it was demonstrated during our project, from the reliable structure, to the quality of the finishes. As well, we are grateful for the kindness you showed us, as we struggled with some technical decisions. We are looking forward to the next project with you."   

 Mirela & Dan B - Calgary, AB



We built our house long-distance in 2006/07 in Invermere/BC while living in Saskatoon. The support from Lindal's Saskatoon dealerDoug Pocha was phenomenal considering the great distance of around 1000 km to our building site. We are now approaching 12 years of living in our Lindal home and still love it like on the first day."

5 Types of Ranch Homes

The ranch's simplicity, open floor plan, soaring walls of glass, and open floor plan are timeless designs that keep the homes popular. You are sure to find the right ranch-style home for you and your family!  Highly energy efficient, exceeding local energy codes, a balance of comfort, style and budget!


5 Different Types of Ranch Homes

Though different styles of ranch homes do share common characteristics, there are also key features that can set them apart. Here are some distinct styles of ranch homes that are tailored to different homeowner needs.

California Ranch

Also known as a rambling ranch, the California ranch is characterized by an L- or U-shaped structure built low to the ground. This sprawling, single-story style is designed to blend with nature. A patio and front lawn are key features of the California ranch.

Suburban Ranch

Though the suburban ranch is similar to the California ranch in its L or U shape and open-concept interior, it is more compact and asymmetrical in structure. Its other main features include an attached garage and backyard

Split-Level Ranch

The split-level ranch has a similar exterior to the suburban ranch but with three stories of staggered living space. Its unique layout features a front door leading into the living, dining and kitchen areas, with two half-flights of stairs leading to bedrooms and additional living space.

Raised Ranch

Like the split-level ranch, the raised ranch features multiple stories of living space, though with a distinctly different layout. The front door of the raised ranch opens directly to a staircase leading both upstairs and downstairs, with the kitchen and bedrooms usually on the upper level.

Storybook Ranch

Also known as the fairytale ranch, the storybook ranch stands out from other ranch styles because of its ornamental details. This design features diamond-shape window panes, a decorative chimney made of brick or stone, and a steep, gabled roof.

Build Green with Lindal

             

At Lindal Western Canada, we believe that our commitment to our clients goes far beyond capturing breathtaking panoramic views. We believe in the importance of preserving the world that our homes celebrate. Therefore, we are proud to offer our clients the opportunity to design and build with Certified Green Professionals for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Homes Green Rating. This is also included for our clients in their Red-Carpet Service at no extra cost.

There are many ways to incorporate green building within your home. Some examples that our clients have incorporated into their home efficiency systems are the use of solar panels and geo-thermal heating. Large overhangs are also included within a lot of our home designs as they block the heat from the summer sun from entering your home. In our design and planning process, our clients are able to fully customize how they would like to build green.

So why should building green matter to you? Not only does this help protect our environment and future generations, but it also creates a more energy-efficient home which saves you more in the long-run.

So, if building a custom prefab eco-conscious home is what you're looking for, then Lindal Western Canada is your ideal partner!

At the heart of the Lindal Experience lives progress and tradition, inspiration and predictability - the cutting-edge architecture is delivered through the time-honored building systems of Lindal Cedar homes and backed by a lifetime structural warranty.

Lindal Cedar Homes has designed and produced over 50,000 homes, built throughout the world in every climate, on every type of terrain, and in every regulatory environment. Since the introduction of its modern design program in 2008, Lindal has been the modern systems-built 'prefab' home of choice for our clients.

How Secure is a Lindal Home?

Most of us hope we’ll never have to experience a hurricane as they can wreak havoc on houses, breaking windows, tearing off roofs, and sometimes, it can even pull an entire house off its foundation. Lindal homes have been built in hurricane-prone areas all over the world — from the Carribean to Florida, and have experienced their share of hurricanes. Over the years, we’ve collected stories from Lindal homeowners who tell us how their Lindal home survived the storm of the decade — or in some cases, the century.

Through direct experience, our homeowners are discovering how well their Lindal homes are built to withstand the strongest storms. Often, a Lindal home is the only home left standing intact in a devastated neighborhood. Below is a before photo of the home of Mike and Elaine McDonnell, as well as an 'after hurricane' photo. As you can tell, the home has not entirely changed at all, except for the fallen deck and debris surrounding the home.

 

Unfortunately, the homes of their neighbors in the aftermath of Category 5 Hurricane Irma did not fare as well.

This is truly the Lindal Difference. We are proud to stand behind our homes because they are built to last a lifetime.
