Exterior Remodel

After meeting numerous contractors to remodel the exterior of our home and being continously disappointed, we did not hesitate selecting Ashwood Designs and Custom Homes after we met Ross. We selected Ashwood for the following reasons (1) Honest and practical remodel and building knowledge (2) Providing us with something tangible to see our vision with predictable 3D modelling (3) Great listener (4) Solid team (5) Fair pricing.

Not only did Ross and his team show expert knowledge, but he was understanding to our needs and helped guide our vision to actual implementation. We had experience with how the construction process is always “ify” on dates, but Ross and his team were on point!! If there was a weather delay, he made sure that expectations were set and his team in place to stick to a manageable and realistic timetable once the weather cleared up.

We did a full exterior remodel down to the studs and modified our house to a modern craftsman style with extended back patio with pergola. We bought our house because we loved the inside and tolerated the outside - now it’s the perfect home with a great balance - all due to Ashwood Designs and Custom Homes. We would not hesitate to use Ashwood again - for a remodel or building a new home. Absolutely fabulous work, great team and outstanding leadership!

Home remodel

We hired Ashwood Designs in 2018 to update our home, which was built in 2000. We relocated a fireplace to create a more inviting living room, replaced all tile flooring with hardwood and updated countertops and paint throughout. The project managers had a great relationship with the on-site trades which enabled our project to progress fluidly and on schedule. I appreciated the weekly updates so I understood what to expect at my house each week. I also appreciated the open communication with Ross and the entire team as my expectations were managed. The quality of craftmanship was superb and I would definitely hire Ashwood Designs for future work!

Everyone at Ashwood Designs was personally invested in our home remodel. They were attentive, timely, enthusiastic, and very professional. Their focus is on quality and when problems arise they are quick to find the right solution for the client.

Whole house remodel

Ashwood Designs was a great partner for remodeling our new home. The end product is beautiful and exactly as we envisioned. All team members were very easy to work with and extremely professional. We have recommended Ashwood Designs to several of our friends and have already started working with them on a new project.

Custom Home Build

Ashwood designed and built our beautiful custom home in Meyerland . Ross was able to capture what we wanted exactly on the design. The workmanship is truly beautiful . We started after Harvey, so it was a little slow, but it was definitely worth the wait . The people he has working for him in the office have been great. They continue to take my calls after the build , which is very important! We finished our home in 2019! It really is our dream house !

Kitchen, living area, wine room and outdoor remodel

The Ashwood Design team offers high quality work with responsive customer service. Their renovation project at our house resulted in a room that looks and feels like it has always been there. We are very happy with our experience and have hired them again for our newest endeavor.

Full house renovation with addition

We absolutely cannot say enough good things about Ashwood Designs!! We just finished a large home remodel and addition, and we could not be more pleased with the work that Ross and his team provided. Ross is an outstanding general contractor with a focus on client satisfaction and attention to detail. Throughout the process, all of the staff at Ashwood Designs were eager to help and easily accessible. I highly recommend Ashwood Designs to anyone considering a home remodel or new construction!

Attic Room Build Out

"We had second floor attic space that we wanted to finish out and turn into a movie room. I contacted Ross with Ashwood Homes and I am so happy with our results. He went above and beyond to make sure that structurally we could pitch the ceiling (even brought in our originaly structural engineer to get his opinion). The room turned out better than I imagined. Pleasure to work with and highly recommend."

Lynn from West University Place


"Ashwood Designs & Custom Homes did an awesome job on our renovation.  We replaced all of the exterior wood with hardy plank, had new windows installed, a new fence and porches built and had the house painted. The project was finished on time, within budget and looks great!  We would hire them again and would recommend Ross Huthmacher to anyone building or doing renovations."

New Construction / Custom Home

"After interviewing 5 Houston custom home builders, we selected Ashwood Designs as our builder for our new custom home in Oat Forest.


Our initial meeting with Ross was very relax and easy, unlike other builders we had interviewed. We immediately pick up how passionate Ross was about building homes and at this point we knew Ross was the right person to take this journey with us.In our design phase, Ross brought a lot of creative and fresh ideas, his 3D graphics made it easy for us to visualize what our home would look like which was very existing for us. This made the process less overwhelming and easier to really design our home. After a few weeks we had our final design.

In the construction phase, Ross was available at any time to address any concerns or questions. He really took time to understand what we wanted and delivered on those exceptions. Most importantly, the project was on budget! Ross was amazing throughout the entire housing builder process. He made our house building experience a great one. We are so pleased and in love with our new custom home.


Thank You Ashwood Designs!"

Master Bath Remodel

"We had Ross Huthmacher at Ashwood Designs complete a master bath remodel, install several custom built-in shelves and a new built-in desk in our office. We were thrilled with the results! He really went above and beyond in helping us finalize details with the design and offering suggestions. I was worried about such a significant amount of work happening while we were still living in the house but that proved to be unnecessary. Ross ensured that his team worked efficiently and that work spaces were always clean and contained. The project came in on budget and timely. It was truly a great experience and we will definitely use him again!"

Aaron and Becky from Maplewood

Master Bath Remodel

"We hired Ross to replace the old cast iron plumbing under our house and remodel our master bathroom. The final result is just amazing. He and his crew are very professional and honest.

Ross created a number of digital renderings for us so we could see what we were getting before hand and the final result is very similar.

While the project took a bit longer than estimated we are not dissatisfied. Most of the delay was due to an excessive number of extremely rainy days during the underground plumbing part that slowed down progress.

We are extremely happy with the result and would definitely hire Ross again"

Rietta from Braeswood

Custom Cabinet Build-ins

"We hired Ashwood Designs and Custom Homes to build cabinets on the slanted wall above our washer/dryer. We wanted the cabinet faces and hardware to match the existing cabinetry throughout our home.  


Ross and his crew were so helpful and easy to work with. They arrived as scheduled, built the cabinets on site, matched the paint, touched up the sheetrock and cleaned up all trace of their work. When finished the cabinets look as if they were original to our home. We couldn’t be more pleased.  The work was exceptional and we would not hesitate to recommend Ashwood Designs and Custom Homes to our friends and would hire them again for future renovations."

Tara from Maplewood


"Ashwood Designs and Custom Homes was beyond great.  We had several contractors come to give us bids, ADCH was the most honest and most reasonable.  The owner of ADCH came by my house several times to check on the work and he even made his crew redo something cause it wasn’t up to his standards- I noticed nothing.  That was impressive!  I would recommend them to anyone and do all the time!  There are many contractors out there but this one is honest, takes pride in his work and his customers."

Liz from Oak Forest


"We worked with Ross Huthmacher doing an extensive remodel (took it down to the studs) of a 1962 home in Candlelight Estates (near Oak Forest) in 2012, and were thrilled with the service, price and results. Ross is wonderful to work with. His word is golden – he does what he says and bends over backwards to make sure you are happy with the results.


There are several requests we made at the time, that in hindsight seem a bit over the top, and Ross’ team obliged without complaint. We now live in the house that his team remodeled and regularly think how lucky we were to have worked with them. I recommend Ashwood Designs highly and without reservation."
