Efficiency and natural beauty: Sir Walter Lindal's cornerstone nearly 70 years ago

Lindal Cedar Homes’ founder, Sir Walter Lindal (“Sir” being his first name, not a knighted title), was an energetic and imaginative entrepreneur with 30 patents, mostly in the custom building industry. He was driven to build high-quality, highly-efficient homes within nature, using one of nature’s best offerings: cedar.

Lindal realized that cedar provides strength and good, natural insulation. Cedar is also able to withstand nature’s rain, snow and other elements. And Lindal realized that the natural beauty of cedar fulfilled the dreams of thousands of home owners.
