Dan+VanderheydenDan Vanderheyden, President of Black Dog Homes

Dan’s passion for building began as a kid woodworking with his father. Their first project was building a soapbox derby car.  He evolved his skills into working as a carpenter and crafting furniture on the side. The next challenge was tearing down the family cabin and building a year ‘round lake home with family members and friends.

It became clear that home building and remodeling would become his life’s work, and Black Dog Homes opened its doors in 2006.  Today, as a custom homebuilder and premier home remodeler, Dan brings the highest level of personal commitment to his customers and projects. He is personally involved in every aspect of the building process.
