Lindal Cedar Homes has been building kit homes for over 65 years now, and they first began their work by designing and selling A-frame vacation cabins. Always improving upon their designs and adapting to the market, Lindal now has a studio model that is perfect for a backyard or even a tiny home. The Modern Studio units come in a few basic small sizes and are completely customizable in terms of exterior finishes, window and door placement, and even roof angle. You can choose a modern studio with a flat roof or pick a slanted roof, which may be more appropriate to install solar panels on or to shed snow in the winter.

As with all Lindal Cedar Homes, the Modern Studio is designed and built with a strong commitment to preserving the environment through the efficient use of resources, energy efficiency, and green and sustainable features. A Lindal dealer helps you through every step of the process — from designing the perfect studio of your dreams to siting it, reducing your home’s impact on its surroundings, and picking out green materials and systems.

Modern Studios start at 115 sq feet and are completely customizable to provide additional space and extras like a breezeway, sun room or even a deck. The Modern Studio can be packed and shipped in a single truck ready for installation by a local contractor on your site.

Renewable energy systems, rainwater collection and other sustainable strategies are easy to include in the studio’s design. Need an off-grid apartment for the in-laws or a backyard office or art studio? Then the Modern Studio by Lindal Cedar Homes might just the ticket.

    I’d love to get one of these kits – but I guess I need a plot of land first…
