Galen Hofer is a founder/owner of City Side Remodeling as well as the company’s agriculutural expert. He grew up as a farm boy in Freeman, South Dakota, and regularly returns there to visit family and friends.

Galen earned a B.A. in industrial arts from Bethel College and spent some time teaching high school shop classes in Pennsylvania. Between the age of 31 and 33 Galen spent his life bumming around the world, visiting most European countries, Vietnam (where he bought a Russian motorbike to get around), China, Russia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong (where he worked in a bar), Laos, and sailing to Australia (where he worked on a sheep farm).

A volunteer assignment with Habitat for Humanity brought Galen to Denver, and in 1988 he earned his contractor’s license. Galen’s favorite aspects of construction include trim work, cabinet installation, and overall project management, which is a good since he handles much of the company paper’s work. Galen often works with Ken.

When Galen isn’t working, you can find him flying at one of our local airports or hanging out with his son, Micah. He also enjoys reading history books, sharing worthless but interesting stories, and building his stash of useless trivia. Galen also volunteers with the Mennonite Economic Development Association, a group that promotes economic opportunities and empowerment as a way to reduce global poverty.
