New Lindal Design – the Aspen

Simple but striking, the Aspen brings the best of LIndal and the Elements design system together in a small home: a low pitched roof, the beauty of cedar, the drama of open beamed ceilings, and an invitation to the outdoors offered by several windows walls.  This home can be built on a slab or, if you have a sloped lot, you can add an optional full or partial daylight basement.
Expansive, yet medium sized at 1300 square feet, the Aspen features three bedrooms with a generous sized master suite located in the wing off the entry.   A low headroom storage loft is located above the living area and accessed by ladder.



New Lindal Design – the Polaris

Originally designed for a sloping site with two major views, this hillside design reveals itself slowly.  Stepping out from under the covered deck into the floating entry foyer, a full view of the exterior is a nice surprise.  Turning toward the main living areas, the flat roof intimately scaled kitchen and dining areas give way to a living room and den that share fireplaces and reach up to capture views under the home’s only sloped roof.  A den provides a quiet buffer to the flat-roofed master suite. The hillside lower level maximizes efficiency and provides generous naturally lit living space for children, multi-generational living, or a spacious home office suite.
