Here at theLoft we are incredibly selective about the folks who work up here and join “the community” we have built here.
We like to make sure that everyone will be able to work well together, that our businesses are a fit together, that we can learn and grow as a direct result of working close to each other but most of all that each person or business that moves up here is a real “culture fit” for what we are building here.
So with that in mind, meet the folks who’s businesses call theLoft their home.

Desire, devotion, and passion would best describe Kody and the way he lives his life. Bow hunting is more than the pursuit of the big game it is about bonding with your friends and family.

He is so grateful for the support of his wife, who knows that sometimes there is nothing better then packin’ out that big bull.
