ASHO the start of something special

Growing up in what used to be the semi rural suburb of North Warrandyte in Victoria I always loved creating, building, working with my hands and getting into the thick of things so the natural path for me was in construction. (I am pictured above with my son Harper)

Over the past 30+ years I’ve worked with architects, tradies, artists and everyday people to help them build their dream spaces. Over that time I realised that everyone has visions and no two visions are the same – our homes are not just walls, floors and ceilings they are a reflection of ourselves.


Like most people I found the perfect block of land in an awesome place that I knew was where I wanted to build my life and family – It had the best cottage on it – so much potential – but it was someone elses cottage, someone elses dreams. Over the years as our family grew and the budget allowed I started transforming our home – room by room bringing our visions, loves and personality – It’s still a work in progress.

Some of my ideas were a bit out there – but, hey they worked. Friends and family would visit and be blown away with the spaces I had created and loved some of the unique materials I used to create them.

ASHO grew and grew – people were wanting to find that something special – they had contacted other builders with their ideas and the builders had bailed on them – putting their ideas and dreams into the too hard basket.

I wanted to be that builder that could say Yeh – that sounds awesome – let’s have a crack.

I have always believed that you shouldn’t have to compromise on your living space – you should be out there and be able to individualise your spaces – make them special – show them off and enjoy them.

Anyone that knows or has worked with me will tell you that I am known for my attention to detail, my passion for using innovative building concepts to create individuality to every space and I have a knack for using interesting building materials to achieve this.


ASHO’s philosophy is to personalise each building project. We believe in providing our clients with information so that they can make informed choices. Whether it’s the use of a particular building material or a design aspect of the project. We work with you to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with your end result.
