Lindal’s building system for custom homes follows a clear step-by-step process that is aided by your local Lindal dealer. After contacting your local dealer, you’ll be given a planning book for inspiration and a set of blocks to play with. Much like children’s building blocks, the Lindal Elements blocks can give you a sense of the home’s form and how much space you want – not to mention they’re fun. During the planning stages the dealer will help you design the perfect Lindal Elements for your family, site it for maximum energy efficiency on your lot, and help you choose green interior finishes.
Since the dealer is a NAHB Certified Green Professional, he or she will be able to best guide in your choice of green interior finishes, the right windows for your location and climate, and the best orientation and siting of the home for optimum passive solar design. They can also help locate and coordinate with special contractors that can install solar systems, rainwater collection systems, and any other green strategies you want to include in your home.
