Steve Asher has the can do mentality. We worked with Steve for 6 months on a $200,000 dollar remodel. Any changes or obstacles were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Steve Asher’s crew were amazing in their knowledge and skills. After our remodel was complete any problems or needs Asher Home’s team was there to help us and get things done. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else to get a construction job done. Two years after our job was complete we still thank Steve and his crew for an awesome remodel.

Steve has built me several homes over the years. the first being when my family moved to the Rogue Valley in 1990. With that experience Steve and I became close friends and still are to this day.
He is possibly the most knowledgeable builder in the state taking time to stay current with building products, local and state codes, energy rebates, and building green.
I have also had the pleaasure of selling building materials to Asher Homes for years and have found them to be easy to communicate with and understanding when there are challenges.
Lastly, I had Steve build me a home while I lived out of the area. Not an easy task yet he is the only builder I had the confidence and trust in to do the job. And we came in under budget!
My experience with Asher Homes building my house was exceptionally gratifying.Steve Asher is highly experienced in home building and very knowledgeable in building with energy efficiency and green building choices in his work. Steve Asher was able to work with my limited budget and offer ways to be most efficient within the budget parameters. We designed our own home and with engineering studies and Steve’s extensive building knowledge we were able to translate the design ideas into the finished space, Steve was easy to work with as the project progressed and completed the work in a timely manner.
Steve’s work is of very high quality, with attention to the inner construction integrity as well as the exterior appearance. I am especially impressed with the quality of the work by all of the sub-contractors involved in Asher Homes work. They are skilled professionals and are proud of their work. Many of them have worked with Steve for a long time and the teams coordinate with each other very effectively. In addition to their skills, they were enjoyable to work with. Steve’s good reputation in the community as a builder of integrity made working with the city planners and inspectors a smooth process.

We went to Steve because of his reputation as an ethical, competent businessman who provides exceptional service. We were not disappointed! Our projects required much consultation and planning. He’s a can-do guy who is always wiling tackle a project and finish it promptly. Those he employs are also superb. In simple words, he did a great job!
When my wife and I moved to Ashland in 2010 we sought a builder who could help us construct an energy efficient passive / active solar home. We were lucky enough to be directed to Steve Asher. At the time of our first meeting with Steve we were still working with another local builder, but were offered some sage advice on regional protocols and standards. When that other builder produced plans and costs that exceeded our budget and threatened to compromise our ability to get a loan, and then declined to negotiate costs, we amicably severed our relation with him and began working with Steve.
We are tremendously glad that we did.
Throughout the design and construction of our home through 2011-2012 Steve was available to offer the benefit of his great experience and wisdom. On countless occasions during the construction, we found Steve was able to actualize ideas that we had and bring them to fruition under budget. On numerous other occasions, Steve was able to come up with subtle ideas that immeasurably enhanced the home and which also kept it within our budget. We were delighted to discover that so effectively did Steve manage to keep construction within budget that we were able to install our preferred lighting (LEDs) throughout, and, furthermore, incorporate granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The final result was a home that exceeded our expectations, and achieved Energy Star Certification and an Earth Advantage Platinum rating for its overall energy efficiency. After three years living in our home, we are as happy now as when we first moved in.
We would recommend Steve Asher and Asher Homes to anyone seeking a green energy efficient home. Were we to do it again, we’d be delighted to engage Steve to help us. We would also be delighted to show our home to anyone considering Asher Homes – or considering energy efficient construction. Indeed, we have been a show home on the Southern Oregon Green and Solar Homes Tour.
Previously I was a builder in Houston, Texas before settling in Ashland, Or. I have found to increase one’s financial portfolio real estate investing is essential. Once settled in Ashland I began looking for a reputable builder for new construction and remodeling. Steve has build 4 custom homes and has done a complete remodel over the last 15 years for us. In each case it was his attention to the details, his design vision, clear communication skills and follow through that was most impressive.. He is easy to work with and pays close attention to your design desires. I will continue to use Steve for any future project and offer my highest recommendation in using Asher Homes.

I met Steve Asher 6 years ago when I began looking for a a very specific homesite in Ashland to accommodate our one level, close to downtown needs. The realtors and I looked for more than 2 years at prospective homes and lots with Steve volunteering on many occasions to meet us at a prospective property to give his opinion on either remodeling or building on the site. Two years later, when we finally found the perfect location, Steve was there to advise us on its suitability and suggesting building plan ideas according to our needs.
Over the course of building our new home, Steve proved to be not only a very experienced builder, but a good designer in his own right. Many a time he came up with solid and creative solutions to some of the trickier problems which surfaced. His background in engineering proved essential in solving our creekside drainage issues and satisfying the city in their requirements. He represented us in a number of evening meetings required for passage of our building plans.
Steve is a fine and economical builder who keeps a close eye on the owner’s budget. His monthly statements include itemized expenses which are cumulatively compared to the final estimated building costs. This is crucial information in the owners’ planning of how to allocate their funds.
Steve is extremely knowledgeable in the area of green building practices and standards, building Earth Advantage homes and regularly volunteering his time to teach others and assist them in becoming credentialed in this area.
He is a joy to work with—always pleasant and responsive to an owners’ questions or needs. His crews, with whom he’s worked for many years, are efficient, cheerful and tidy. I highly recommend him to anyone building or remodeling in the Rogue Valley.
We hired Asher Homes to do a large remodel on our home last year. Steve Asher helped us design a functional and beautiful space for our family. We loved working with Steve and were impressed by the professionalism and expertise of all of the subcontractors who contributed to the project.
Steve has years of experience building and remodeling homes and strong roots in our community. He was accessible throughout our project and responded promptly when any issues arose. Our project was completed within a reasonable time frame. We are thrilled with our new home!

Steve and his team (which were the same consistent workpersons everyday) did an excellent job. They were timely, kept a clean work environment, and made necessary adjustments in the implementation to solve some minor problems in design. We have no complaints and would recommend without hesitation Asher Homes Inc for any remodeling job.
Steve Asher and his careful, competent, pleasant, and loyal team built my house 9 years ago, when I moved here from the East Coast. The experience was wonderful, and I love my beautiful and substantial home. Several years ago, we converted the deck into a dining room to open up more living space. The renovation was perfect and Steve worked closely with us to make it truly remarkable.
Due to circumstances having nothing to do with my house, we are planning to renovate an older home in the neighborhood within the next few months. I wouldn’t even consider such a project if Steve wasn’t on board. I give him my highest recommendation.
Steve Asher and Asher Homes did a wonderful job remodeling an older style home I bought in the mountains. Not only was he professional and very communicative, the work done was impeccable. The previous abnormalities with the old home were all taken care of without any evidence they were there. The additions and remodeling were all done to keep the style and appearance like the home always appeared as the finished product. Would suggest everyone looking to build or remodel a home to seek out Steve and Asher Homes.
