About Us

Premier Home builders Since 2001

With a focus on delivering functional and comfortable designs that fit the way you live, VanDerKamp Home Builders, founded by Dutch VanDerKamp, has quickly built a reputation for constructing dependable homes with lasting value and quality that reflects the personal touch of their building process. Each project is carefully managed with daily on-site supervision and active involvement in every element of the construction process to ensure quality, maintain efficiency, and provide an ease of accessibility to homeowners and prospective buyers.

Dutch is proud to offer homeowners the assurance of a quality built home utilizing over 24 years of framing experience in residential new construction. Emphasizing quality over quantity, and while it is often rare for general contractors to be so hands-on, this process has become “The VanDerKamp Difference” of home construction. It allows VanDerKamp Home Builders the ability to ensure they can continue to deliver the finest quality real estate product at an affordable price that you, the customer, will be proud to call your home!

Testimonials

Aaron & Lauren King

“Our experience with Dutch and Stephanie was beyond exceptional. From our first meeting, to our final walkthrough, we could not be happier with our experience. They took the time to listen to our wants and needs for our home and were then able to make recommendations within our budget. They were super easy to get in contact with and always responded in a timey manner with any questions we had. The quality of products and building materials used is far superior than anything we had seen in homes by other builders we had looked into. They truly made our dream home a reality and we cannot say enough amazing things about VanDerKamp Home Builders!”

Larry and Sue Rains

We recently moved into our second VanDerKamp home. We got the perfect floor plan for us plus extra garage space. We really like how it came out. A beautiful walkout with great open spaces. Dutch and Stephanie are great to work with. Love the house and couldn’t be happier!

Gary & Amy Meier

We recently moved from the Twin Cities to Ankeny and selected a home by VanDerKamp Home Builders. We were so impressed with the quality construction and design features that Dutch built into the home. Spacious rooms, high ceilings, and a design that flows so well. You can tell that you are buying quality, solid construction. AND Dutch and Stephanie are awesome people to work with. We could not be happier with our new home.

Jerry & Sue Porter

We built our home with VanDerKamp and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Both Dutch and Stephanie were great to work with, and the quality of the house is outstanding! They made the home building process painless! Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a home.

Tony & Karen Sage

After our second experience buying a home with VDK, I still can’t imagine any other home builder that has as much integrity as they do. They are honest, informative, and very helpful. They were extremely patient with all the crazy questions we had and always addressed them right away. I highly recommend VanDerKamp Home Builders and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Larry & Susan Rains

Dutch is a man of his word and did everything we asked. Stephanie made closing seamless and very easy for us. If we ever build another home, it will be with them! Thanks so much for the enjoyable experience!
