Our Process

Ashton Custom Homes builds in the affluent communities throughout the Greater San Antonio area, including: The Dominion, Stone Oak, Fair Oaks Ranch, Alamo Heights, & surrounding areas.

Choosing to build a luxury, custom home is a really big decision. It’s the kind of decision that requires some research before you make it. A custom home is the home you design, not a home someone is trying to fit you into. At Ashton Custom Homes,  you tell us what you want, bring us photos of the things you’ve always wanted in your one-of-a-kind home, and you don’t pay for things that don’t matter to you because they’re not in the home we design together. That’s the value of a luxury, custom home – it is built on the foundation of what is most important to you, based on your budget. When you are finished, there won’t be another home like it. And that makes doing your homework so important when you decide to build the home where you’ve always dreamed of living.

FINANCES
There is no way around it, building your one-of-a-kind, custom home is a financial transaction. The type and amount of the transaction is one of the first things you need to think about.
One of the best ways to determine the budget for your new luxury, custom home is to have your mortgage pre-approved at one of our preferred lenders. They all specialize in helping you understand the costs and options for buying your new home. Getting pre-approved also helps you understand what the number you’re working with is, before you start designing your home.
Your unique ideas of what home means don’t have anything to do with financing, but building it is a numbers game. Let us help you find out your number so together we can bring your dream
home to life.

WISH LIST
There is a competition going on. There is the budget you have for your one-of-a-kind home, and there is the list of all that stuff you want in it. The trick is making sure the elements you really need are included first. What you decide to include is the wish list for your new custom home. After you’ve made your list, that’s where Ashton Custom Homes can help. We’re experts at balancing your wish list with your budget. We will help you make sure the things you can’t do without are part of your new luxury, custom home. The vision of what makes a home special is different for everyone. Putting your wish list into your home is what makes Ashton Custom Homes special.

DESIGN
Designing your one-of-a-kind home, with your bucket list and your budget in mind, isn’t about price per square foot. It’s about thought per square foot. That’s a difference only a custom
builder can provide. There are things that mean luxury to you. There are things that mean comfort to you. And there are little things you want just to spoil yourself. How can those things be in a house someone else designed? Ashton Custom Homes designs your home the way you want it. We don’t try to convince you to be happier with the way we pre-designed it. That’s the difference between luxury and custom. We don’t say, “Here’s your plan.” We ask you, “What’s your plan?” That’s because Ashton Custom Homes is both luxury and custom.

THE OUTSIDE IN
This is the fun part, filling the home you’ve designed with all the touches that make it your one-of-a-kind home. What fixtures in the master bathroom? What cabinets in the kitchen? Tile or wood in the entry? Stone or stucco on the exterior? The longer you think about it, the longer the list gets, and you have lots of questions. Ashton Custom Homes is full of answers. It will make all the difference in your new custom home. This is the step in the process that brings everything together. This is where what you imagined starts to become a reality. Now we can start building your new custom home.
