David Von Holten, is the 4th generation to purchase his family's farm in Mora, Missouri. He and his wife, Brandy, turned the farm into a horse trail riding facility and wedding venue. David did not come from money and had to figure everything out for himself. At the age of 22, he built his first home. Since then, he has built two other residences, a cabin, a boarding barn, and numerous out buildings and shops. Brandy was a school teacher for over a decade. David found himself involved on numerous levels from judging a talent show, fixing classroom tables, helping hang decorations, to putting together simple machines. Now, at the horse trail riding facility, David and Brandy host numerous kids day camps. It was at the time David realized there was a need to teach woodshop. This is the beginning of "Building with David". David is also available for custom wood projects!
