Hello, I am Dave Hoffman.I can build or design your perfect tree house, tree stand or observation deck.

I grew up on a farm in Central Pennsylvania where I spent most of my time outdoors. My love of construction started at an early age and I was always building something on the farm.

School was a pain except for shop and gym class and the camaraderie that sports provided. Throughout high school, in addition to mini bike trails, I continued building forts and tree houses around the farm, using discarded lumber from real projects and sometimes even going to lumber yard and purchasing material!

After graduating from high school, I worked in construction. During that year, I decided that if I wanted to be the one designing homes, bidding in jobs, dealing with customers and managing the finances for this work, I needed to further my education. I graduated from WACC, now Penn Tech, in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

With my own construction company, I did renovations and repairs, built additions and constructed new homes.

An experience building a log home in Turkey led me to a long term relationship with the log home company and I enjoyed 15 years with them. I liked the log home projects throughout the United States and I especially liked to travel and experience the people and culture at the International sites.

I am skilled in post and beam timber framing, large log construction, and log home maintenance and repair.

Recently, I decided to get back to my roots and am now using these skills to again build tree houses. Check out new tree houses on tree stand model page.
