Alberta Family Builds a Unique, Multi-Generational New Home at The Ridge in Courtenay

We recently spoke with one family about their decision to move to the Comox Valley, and specifically to The Ridge, from Alberta:

Jodi and Michael were looking to move to Vancouver Island where they could have easy access to enjoy their hobbies of mountain biking and skiing. They also wanted to build a new home to share with Michael’s parents, who are in their 70s.

They researched the areas of Victoria and the Comox Valley, and chose the Comox Valley because of the close accessibility to biking and skiing at Mount Washington. They chose The Ridge development in Courtenay because they really liked the ocean and mountain views, the spaciousness of the neighbourhood and the walking trails. They felt welcomed by the friendly neighbours and they appreciate the lack of traffic noise and lack of light pollution.

As well, the cost of building a new home to suite their unique needs was more affordable at The Ridge than it was in Victoria. The two couples wanted to build a duplex, with a custom design for their extended family's needs and they found the perfect duplex lot at The Ridge. They built a single-storey bunaglow on one side for Michael’s parents and a two-storey home on the other side for themselves. 

The two families are now happily settled in their new custom home at The Ridge built by one of their preferred builders, Lawmar Contracting.

Contact The Ridge to register as a “prospective client” and receive more information about their next phase of lots, which will be available in late 2018.

For more information contact, Bruce Clapham at 250.650.8588.
