Homebuyers in The Ridge community in Courtenay, BC enjoy the assurance that their home and future homes in the neighbourhood have architectural guidelines in place for the benefit of all residents. What exactly are building schemes and archtiectural guidelines?

Building Schemes

A Building Scheme is a covenant put in place by the developer - Bucksone Investments - for the benefit of the future property owners in the phase. The agreement is a private covenant registered against each lot in the phase. A typical covenant is to ensure minimum sizes of homes are developed and maintained in each phase.

Architectural Guidelines

Architectural Guidelines are rules and suggestions written by the Developer to assist designers and home builders in developing building designs and home plans that suit the character of the development. They represent the minimum expectations of Buckstone and assist in the design quality of the development. These guidelines help Buckstone in presenting designed harmonious streetscapes and consistent quality neighbourhoods for the benefit of the subsequent homeowners.
