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 [2]. 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 [3], 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 [4] 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 [6] 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 [7] and other sustainable strategies [8] 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 [6] by Lindal Cedar Homes might just the ticket.
