Dwell and its writers/editors have considerable influence in the prefab industry.  They made a big move last year announcing the Dwell Homes Collection of “warm modern” prefabs designed by Turkel Design and produced by Lindal Cedar Homes.  This year, Lindal and Turkel Design added seven new plans to the collection and they’re beautiful, to put it simply.


These new designs range in size from about 1,700 – 3,000 square feet and can be modified to unique sites, budgets, and other requirements.

In terms of green building, Lindal works with homeowners to maximize orientation and builds these homes with smart framing, energy efficient systems, and green materials.

Roughly 80% of Lindal dealers are NAHB Certified Green Professionals and use their training to assist homeowners through various aspects of construction.

Lindal is hosting three webinars in the next few weeks with Joel Turkel to explain how they design and build these eco-friendly and energy-efficient homes. Seems like a nice opportunity, especially if you’re interested in green prefab homes.
