Building Homes With Character

For most of us, our homes are the largest purchase we will make in our lifetimes. Selecting a homebuilder or a remodeler is not something that should be done lightly. If you are considering building a new home or undertaking a renovation project, we hope you will not hesitate to contact us to make your dream home or renovation come to life.


Ashland Custom Homes focuses on building quality custom homes for real people. We are a Charlotte focused builder, dedicated to building homes with character. We do not mass-produce dozens of cookie-cutter homes nor do we build McMansions that only the elite can afford. We build real homes, for real people and real families.

We are a small, specialty builder, offering new home construction, remodeling and renovation work. Focused on quality versus quantity, we provide a unique combination of value and unequalled personalized service. Clients have come to expect to work directly with owners, Ed and Howie in every project from start, to finish, and beyond. This is truly what creates The Ashland Experience.



Ashland Custom Homes strives to positively impact families and the community around us through a handful of quality new home and renovation projects each year. We want our families to look back at this time of their life as the beginning of the happiest years of their lives by listening to their needs and delivering their dream home or remodel.



We want to make the construction experience thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, and to have a positive influence on every person that comes in contact with the Ashland Custom Homes organization, including subcontractors, neighbors, suppliers, and most of all, homeowners.



These are the tools that we embrace in conducting our business. When everything goes according to plan, anyone can deliver on these lofty ideals. It is the way that we conduct ourselves during unexpected times of crisis that will ultimately define our character.

Thanks again for visiting our website. If you have any questions or would like some additional information, please contact us directly.

Happy Building,
– Ed & Howie

The Ashland Superior Customer Experience

Our tag line, Building Homes with Character, has two meanings that creat our superior customer experience. First, we hope that you will find our designs and floor plans to be as unique and charming as they are functional. The architectural details and interior design features of your home should be designed with you in mind, and will set your home apart. No detail is too small, and we think this mind-set reflects positively in the homes we create.


Second, and equally as important, this is a reflection of our business practices. Character is the cornerstone of any good business relationship, and we strive to conduct business with both our subcontractors and our homebuyers in a completely honest and straightforward manner. From start to finish, we set reasonable and clear expectations, we do not over-promise, and we keep our commitments.
