“I built my first Lindal Cedar Home in Cedar Hill Missouri in 1985. It was a wonderful and memorable experience. I was impressed with the Lindal system and components then, and I am even more impressed today. Lindal has continued to evolve over time, implementing the best of modern building science and sustainable materials. Over the last decade Lindal has teamed with some of the world’s best Architects to create many inspiring and beautiful award-winning designs, and they continue to do so. I was honored when Lindal Cedar Homes approached me to be an independent dealer.”

~Don Stockell, Essentially Modern Custom Homes in Missouri
