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

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!

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 fo the house is outstanding! They made the home building process painless! Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a home.
