Lindal Cedar Homes is a family-owned business founded in 1945 by Sir Walter Lindal. After serving the Canadian Army in WWII, Sir Walter started his own manufacturing company in Toronto, Canada.
The housing market saw a spike in its demand for new homes once World War II ended, and Sir Walter was one of the visionaries that sought out to meet the market’s demands. Sir Walter Lindal held 21 patents (including his own version of the A-frame) as well as numerous awards for his outstanding designs and innovations in the prefab homes industry.
Sir Walter’s descendants were actively involved in the company’s management and helped create a team of exceptional artisans with a deep respect for the craft and the environment. The company’s one-of-a-kind style, patented building methods, and strict quality controls continue to evolve three generations later.
This combination of innovation, expert craftsmanship, and rigorous quality control have allowed Lindal Cedar Homes to remain leaders in their industry for decades, developing a reputation for building houses with a lifetime warranty.
This family-owned company has delivered over 50,000 homes for 70 years, making them one of the best prefab modular home builders today. Their commitment to satisfying each customer while protecting the environment has allowed the company to break the mold from its inception. Lindal Cedar Homes continue to innovate and expand their already massive floor plan library to guarantee that every customer gets the home they’ve always dreamed about buying.
Their patented building system, premium materials, and time-tested designs allow them to offer remarkable homes at an incredible price. Their lifetime warranty and long-standing reputation make them an excellent choice for first-time and veteran homeowners alike. After browsing their catalog, it’s fair to say that each model is worthy of being considered some of the best affordable prefab adu homes on the market.
