The KBI Process

The Asher Process

Leadership from Beginning to End

As a luxury home builder and remodeler with over two decades of experience in Durango and Southwest Colorado, the Asher Custom Homes team understands how your home impacts so many aspects of your life. Therefore we want the home we design and build with you to be tailored to meet your needs and lifestyle, capturing your vision with exquisite craftsmanship while keeping your budget in mind. We aim to build a lasting relationship with you as well as an extraordinary home. The hard work and dedication that underpins our commitment to our “Built with Pride” philosophy sets us apart in our ability to build you the home of your dreams.

Our Process

Whether for construction of your new home or the remodel of your existing home, Asher Custom Homes will guide you through the design-build process.  From the first phone call until we hand you the keys and beyond, you will have at your disposal a team of professional designers, consultants and contractors dedicated to ensuring your home is completed to the highest standards.  Our attention to you and to the highest quality design and construction of your home does not mean additional cost. Asher has developed relationships with the best subcontractors, craftsmen, and suppliers in our area. This translates to dependability, preferred buying status, and cost-savings for you. Because we recognize that unforeseen needs do sometimes come up, Asher has a team of post-construction specialists ready to respond should you need them. Our dedicated team of design, construction and service experts will go the extra mile to ensure that every aspect of your home exceeds your expectations.


We believe that good communication plays a key role in the success of our design-build process and the relationship we forge with our clients. Transparency and honesty are the bedrock of that process. You will be in regular contact with your own hand-picked Asher team throughout the entirety of your project so that you are always aware of its progress. There are of course many decisions to be made along the way, and we will guide you through these to ensure they are made as easily and efficiently as possible. Our online construction management system enables us to streamline our communications with you, and allows you to make design selections and track the progress of your home through our regularly updated notes and photos from anywhere you are. This especially benefits our clients who live outside of the Southwest Colorado area. Your team will always be available to discuss any aspect of your project. Good communication moves projects forward and keeps everyone working towards a unified goal.


The various stages of pre-construction play a critical role in the design-build process. While Asher has the ability to begin working with you at any of these stages, enlisting us early gives you the benefit of our decades of building expertise. We can help you find the perfect building site or evaluate the land you already own. We will help you navigate county and community approval processes. As we craft the overall narrative of your dream home from creative concept to technical strategy, our design team will work hand-in-hand with you to create floor plans, hand-rendered elevations, and final construction blueprints. As the design develops, we provide real-time budget estimates to enable you to make informed decisions. We bid out the various aspects of your project to our hand-picked subcontractors to ensure you get the best possible pricing, identify opportunities for value engineering, and present you with potential building efficiencies that do not compromise the quality or design of your home. Because of our streamlined process and collaboration with you throughout the pre-construction process, you are able to make informed, decisive and expeditious decisions, saving you both time and money.


Our “Built with Pride” philosophy really shines during this phase and while we will “pilot the plane” so to speak, you will be our co-pilot. During construction our project managers and site supervisors carefully manage everything that takes place on your job site to make certain that each step runs smoothly and efficiently. Our online project management, quality control, and finish selection systems allow you to make choices in person or from afar ensuring that everything that becomes a part of your home matches your design choices. You will both have the ability to monitor your project’s progress throughout the construction phase on a daily basis using our online system, as well as through regular communication with your construction team.


The nature of custom home building is very personal, so by the time you move into your dream home you will have developed strong relationships with your Asher team. Because we build homes that will last for generations to come, we know that our relationship with you will be long lasting as well. When we hand you the keys, we want you to have peace of mind knowing we will continue to be available to help you should you need us through a range of post-construction services. Whether you need warranty work, general upkeep, special projects, home management, remodels, or repairs, you can count on us to be there.
