Custom Cottages and Homes
After having two children we decided Saltspring was too secluded and we moved to Victoria. We soon started missing the country again, and stumbled upon a cottage co-op on the koksilah river near Shawnigan lake. We built a cottage, and I guess it was a hit because we got the contracts to build five more. We helped with the design process, and worked with the owners to come up with some very different cottages. We love the arts and crafts style, and working with natural materials. Our timber framed lofts, have become the "appleford" signature. The cottages gave us a chance to use old-fashioned building techniques, but with modern codes.
