These 'Kit Homes' Are a Masterpiece of Design

In 2009, Lindal Cedar Homes expanded their design range with a new line of modern home designs. These luxury kit homes are built from premium materials and pre-cut at Lindal's factory. The components are then loaded into containers and delivered to build sites across North America. The post-and-beam structure allows for open floor plans, high ceilings, and walls of glass that provide unparalleled panoramic views. Let's take a look at five contemporary homes, each with its own unique style.

1. A Pre-Cut, Energy-Efficient Cedar Home

The Seafoam design, spanning 2,000 square feet, is a testament to simplicity and elegance. With walls of glass that offer breathtaking views of the surrounding nature, this home seamlessly blends the indoors and outdoors. The open floor plan on the main level creates a flexible living space for dining, cooking, and relaxation. Upstairs, the loft-style master bedroom overlooks the lower communal areas, creating an airy and light-filled atmosphere.

Glass doors on both floors and clerestory windows on the main floor further enhance the natural light penetration. Additionally, a self-contained studio above the garage provides added functionality, serving as a rental space, guest apartment, or multigenerational living area.
