“We have dealt with Stu and the team at Budget Blinds several times, both for our business, and our home. The level of service we have received from Stu's team is unparalleled in the industry. The products that Budget Blinds offers are top quality and the pricing is extremely competitive. Thanks for all the great work!”

“Michelle Norris of Budget Blinds is an amazing woman! Michelle and her team have efficiently added window film and replaced the window coverings within two of my homes. She did expertly help me to select the best window coverings for various scenarios. Michelle Norris with Budget Blinds was prompt, highly skilled, a great communicator and very professional. Great Value too!”

“We needed to replace our bedroom curtain for one that gave a complete black out as we both love sleeping in the dark. A quick search on Google and we contacted Michelle, she offered to come and give us a free consultation. Michelle knows her blinds, being a bit of a techy nerd we went with blinds that connect to Google home (pressing button is so 2016). Our whole experience with the team was excellent. I would highly recommend both Michelle and the Google blackout blinds. Very pleased and so glad we went with Budget Blinds.”

Regardless of your needs for home or commercial window coverings, Budget Blinds can deliver on time and on budget. Contact your closest location today:

Monterra Projects, known for building high quality custom homes and multi-family projects in the Comox Valley, has started construction on a new patio home project called Tanglewood, at The Ridge in South Courtenay.

The Ridge is a master-planned neighbourhood of new homes located just minutes away from the downtown core of Courtenay, shopping centres, major amenities and the Comox Valley Airport (YQQ).

Known for its panoramic views of Comox Bay, the mainland mountains and the Comox Glacier, there are now more than 100 families calling this community home. Many of the new homeowners have relocated from across BC and the country.

Tanglewood will feature 32 patio homes when completed. A community clubhouse in the centre of the development will include a great room, sitting area, kitchen and bathrooms. This private building will be accessible to all Tanglewood residents and their guests and is the perfect place to meet the neighbours and host family gatherings. The clubhouse will be completed in the fall of 2020.

Six new patio homes will be ready for occupancy in the fall of 2020. Phase 1 offers three floor plans, ranging from 1,338 to 1,542 sq. ft built in an open concept design. The outdoor patio flows seamlessly from the great room.

Well-appointed finishes throughout the patio homes include hardwood flooring, a gas fireplace and modern lighting. The five-piece master ensuite includes a separate walk-in shower, double sinks and a stand-alone soaker bathtub. 

Prices in Phase 1 start at $599,000. These homes will be built to Step Code 4 specifications, improving energy efficiency and comfort.
