Environmental Responsibility: Green from the Ground Up

Lindal Cedar Homes historically is known for our post and beam construction. Part of our history, and before it became a concern for modern home builders,  is the concept of building green. But what does ‘building green’ mean? Following is the first article of a series that we will be posting to explain what that means. Check back here next month for the next article in the series.


Proper siting, site responsive house design, the use of sustainable materials, efficient delivery, and the knowledge required to apply them. Lindal has invested heavily in green; that’s why you won’t need to.

For over twenty years, Lindal Cedar Homes has planted trees to replace those harvested for our homes. Lindal has led green home building efforts in the use of energy efficient windows and detailing, in the use of engineered wood and other sustainable materials. The company has been recognized by local and national news outlets, was the first to be Green Approved by the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center and the only single family home selected for TIME Magazine’s Green Design 100. Lindal’s dealers have received special training to become Certified Green Professionals, and today many Lindal owners choose to build off the grid or seek green certification for their homes.
