Underfoot in this relaxing family home is a piece of history. When a much-loved Victoria bowling alley was torn down, Andrew Tidman salvaged giant fir beams and had them milled into wide plank flooring. The beautiful fir floor is one of the many elements that make up this home’s warmth and character. This is a home where a family can kick back together—in front of the two-storey fireplace, around the kitchen island or in the comfortable dining room. Tidman reclaims beautiful materials when possible in an effort to reduce environmental impact and make each home unique.
When a family inherited seaside land in Victoria, BC, they approached Tidman Construction to help with a large subdivision layout, permits, design, showhomes, design schemes and building restrictions. Tidman went on to build a number of homes in this residential community. While the homes all have different styles, each suits the neighbourhood and is distinguished by the quality finishing Tidman Construction is known for.
Open spaces and natural materials were the guiding principles for this custom home. On a sprawling acreage on the Saanich Peninsula, the wood and stone details give this home its place in the country. Inside it brims with the equestrian, rustic style of the homeowners. Both private and open spaces abound—perfect for relaxing with a book, entertaining or keeping the company of your family.
