From start to finish, an Andelwood Home displays the quality and craftsmanship that has made the company one of the first choices of discerning homebuyers throughout the Durham Region. Uniqueness and creativity abound; rarely is the same home built twice.


Models displayed in the projects are a testament to designer Bas van Andel’s creativity, and plans are customized to meet the purchaser’s needs. “When we are done, each home is truly a reflection of that individual” say Bas.

The quality built into an Andelwood Home is evident by its high resale value. Mincom Millenium owner Derek Baird has worked with Bas for years, and he points out “Every time an

Andelwood Home is advertised in a paper or magazine, the first thing mentioned in the ad is that it is an Andelwood Home. Because of Andelwood’s reputation, the seller gets premium money for resale…”


Much of this quality is derived from the trades that Andelwood Homes use. Many of them have been with Bas van Andel for over twenty-five years- a tribute to the atmosphere of order and harmony on site. Bas asserts “I’ve learned to choose my trades based on quality and dependability, rather than price. This has really been key to my success over the years.”


Andelwood homes are dotted throughout the Durham Region, a sign of the company’s longevity and staying power through the ups and downs of the years.  For more information about how Andelwood Homes can build your dream home, contact us at sales@andelwoodhomes.ca.

Bas van Andel

Born in Holland, Bas came to Canada in 1972 with no money and a plan to stay for only a year. After a few odd jobs including some in construction, he started with Bell Drafting in Whitby. Before long he was designing homes there, and after just a couple years he went on his own. Desiring to put the theory into practice, he soon began to build the homes he was designing. Now many years later, hundreds of houses in the Durham Region bear his signature and testify to the quality reputation he has built.

Shawn van Andel

Born and raised in Port Perry, Shawn grew up on the construction site, spending Saturdays and holidays there, learning from the ground up. As he got older, he spent summers working for various sub-trades, in order to get a feel for other aspects of building a home. He graduated from Queens University with a degree in Engineering, and worked for another building company for a time. He joined Andelwood Homes in 2007 and currently takes care of the day-to-day operation of the business.
