Deciding on What to Build & Where
We explore where a home will best suit you. Location, space, schools, stores, commute, friends, family.
Next we explore what home design will best suit your needs. Family size and age, home size and layout, and of course budget.
Building or Buying a Home

Custom Built Homes
While Ascot has grown, it will always be a custom home builder at heart. True to our roots we are happy to work on custom home projects. These can either be based on plans we own, our plans with some modification, or plans our customers bring in.
Budgets & Financing
While construction is our passion, the numbers need to get sorted out up front to ensure we are delivering on what our clients want and will fit their budgets.
Plans & Specifications
We decide on the house plans and any modifications if required as well as how the home will be finished. Cost estimates are prepared and reconciled with budgets.
With plans, finishes and financing decided upon its time to get contractual documents signed.
Construction begins. Once the home is framed and roughed in, clients are asked to walk through the project and approve it before sheetrock is hung. At this point changes are relatively inexpensive. Once sheetrock has begun changes can get pricey and result in unwelcome delays.
Home is finished and clients walk through the finished product with us for a final list of items that may need attention. Once the items on this list are completed Homeowners sign their Home Acceptance forms.
Bank formalities are met and the home changes hands.
Homeowners occupy their new home.
