Meet Our Team
“The only time that success comes before work is in the dictionary.” It takes years of work and commitment to your craft before you can consider yourself somewhat successful. That is the kind of work Mike and Rod put in every single day to make every project a success.
Priding himself as a consummate plough horse Mike has always found himself most comfortable with the tool belt around his waist. While he enjoyed working as a site superintendent for some of Calgary’s most prestigious Home builders, Mike always found comfort swinging a hammer instead of clicking a pen. With over 20 years residential and commercial construction experience Mike brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
Mike was fortunate to have met Rod during their stint working for a local home builder. The two developed an instant connection with a shared appreciation for quality of work over quantity and Ashwood Homes was the result.
Rod, with his partner Mike, started Ashwood Homes in 2007 after seeing a need in the Calgary market for a more personalized home building experience. His passion for working with homeowners at the ground level and his creative eye for seeing possibilities, lets clients know he has their best interests at heart. His 30 years of experience and background in all aspects of the construction process offers him a unique perspective to guide clients through renovations and new construction projects with both honesty and integrity. As a Journeyman Carpenter himself, it is not unheard of for Rod to pick up a hammer or strap on a tool belt at some point during construction to ensure each project is completed with quality and care from start to finish.
Ashwood homes has a well-earned reputation for building great relationships with our clients to help them build inspired spaces. In doing so, this has translated into many repeat clients and long term friendships.
We wanted to express our deepest gratitude over the amazing job you did completing our basement development. The transformation was unbelievable and we are extremely happy with your craftsmanship, your professionalism and the timely manner in which you completed the project.
You had great suggestions regarding the design and we appreciate the unique carpentry items you added to the job. We especially love our built-in cabinets. You made the process enjoyable and we consider you our “carpenters for life”!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for the fantastic job you did on our downstairs basement development. Totally professionally done and within the time frame you had given us.
The sub-trades that worked for you were very friendly and very experienced in their field. I have never seen such excellent work done before on all the reno jobs I have had done in the past 40 years.
I would highly recommend Ashwood Homes for any further work if needed. We have shown all our relatives and friends the great job you have done and they were all impressed on how good the basement looks, like a show home.
Thanks again for a job well done !
Bill & Val Mclean • HOME RENOVATION
We are writing to thank you for the exceptional job that you both did in completing our basement. The high level of craftsmanship that was demonstrated at every stage of the project resulted in a finished basement that impressed both of us and all those who have had the opportunity to see it.
The time that you spent answering our questions helped us to design a basement that we are proud to show others. Your willingness to work with us to incorporate modifications as the project progressed resulted in an enjoyable work experience.
The project was completed ahead of schedule and to a high degree of quality. Any issues that occurred during construction were quickly identified and rectified. This resulted in a very positive experience that allows us to enjoy the finished product even more.
We will definitely continue to recommend Ashwood Homes to anyone that is planning a construction project in the future.
Lana & Bruce Weatherdon • HOME RENOVATION
It was an excellent experience working with Rod and Mike. We had a hard time finding someone to take on a smaller project such as ours and were thankful that a company with a such a great reputuation were willing to take us on.
Mike is very down to earth and was able to explain the ins and outs of the project to ensure we fully understood the work to be done. Everyone involved in the project was very professional and we never felt inconvenienced during the renovation. We would fully recommend Rod and Mike to anyone involved in a home project. Thanks for everything!
