Herrewynen's History

In the 1970’s a young Paul Herrewynen decided to get into business for himself. Working in construction since he was 16, Herrewynen was good at building things and thought that could make a nice career for him. Soon after, his younger brother Len joined him.

In this day and age, where it’s rare for a family business to reach the 40th anniversary, the Herrewynen brothers never imagined they’d be celebrating 40 years of business. But now, hundreds of custom-built homes later, the Herrewynen family is enjoying the good name they’ve built for themselves. 

“We’re quality conscious,” Paul says. “And so are our subcontractors. They know what we expect and that is the best.”

Herrewynen Homes continues to build beautiful homes to compliment a customer’s individual taste and our glorious countryside. What sets Herrewynen Homes apart is their close working relationship with customers. 

With a small dedicated crew and a group of time-tested subcontractors, some who have been with Herrewynen since day one, Herrewynen Homes offers superior quality materials and superb finished product.

While the business had been a family affair between the Herrewynen brothers for over four decades, in 2022 longtime employee and carpenter Mike Spencer took the reigns of the company to continue supporting its original family focused mission of building outstanding custom homes for families across Simcoe and Norfolk County.
