who, what & where

Nest & Sprout LLC is owned and operated by Dave Hoffmeister—a retired aviation guy, woodworker, and life-long DIYer. From his workshop in Cheyenne, Wyoming, he designs, builds and installs sturdy, well-thought-out wares including raised and elevated garden beds, garden drip irrigation systems, cool yard benches, pet enclosures, pet doors and perches, and custom shelving and storage solutions.
Nest & Sprout also provides Handy(crafts)man services, and will take on minor household repairs within the limits of the business.

What you can expect

High-Quality Durable Goods

Wares from Nest & Sprout are designed to stand the test of time. I strive to use long-lasting materials, sourced from the U.S. whenever possible, and I build with attention to both structure and detail, with the belief that time-tested joinery has more strength and visual appeal than mass-produced merchandise with "quick connect" fasteners.

Custom and "Stock" Products and Solutions

While off-the-shelf products are sometimes ideal, they don't always fit your needs. Nest & Sprout creates usable, attractive, long-lasting solutions to meet customer's specific needs by offering both custom-built and our own stock-size items.

A Professional Who KEEPS HIS Promises

After 30 accident-free years in aviation, I'm not in the habit of cutting corners or doing things as minimally as possible. I believe in a methodical and conscientious approach to finding solutions to challenges, with timely, active and thoughtful communication throughout, and I strive to apply a level of craftsmanship that ensures attention to detail on each project.

"Nest & Sprout is a single-member LLC—the company's reputation is my reputation, and my work is my own." — Dave Hoffmeister

Integrity and Quality of Work

We hired Dave at Nest and Sprout to dismantle our old cedar deck. He arrived promptly and got right to work. Not only was the deck disassembled, but every bit of wood and metal hardware—down to the deck screws—was removed from our backyard and salvaged or recycled! We are planning to have him back to help with new yard construction projects at our new home. Once you have experienced Dave’s integrity and quality of work, Nest and Sprout will be who you call for all you are home and garden dreams!
