“All there is to thinking is seeing something noticeable, which makes you see something you weren’t noticing, which makes you see something that isn’t even visible.”

Get It Done-er
Jordan is the owner of Nomadic Shack alongside his wife, Kristi. For the past 19 years Jordan has been leading his award-winning full service retail build out company that services some of the most demanding names in the retail and restaurant business. His clients not only demand the highest standards in production quality, but they also demand their finished product be as unique and custom as their brands. This is the fuel center of Jordan. His approach to one of a kind construction has led him to be an innovator in installations. In this space there are no rules or norms, only that the job has to get done, it has to be unique, and in the end his name will be attached to it. It is that pride that is deeply instilled in him that has been the background for the construction of Nomadic Shacks and the guarantee in our future success. His passion for the outdoors and construction has been the catalyst for the creation of Nomadic Shacks. When you work with Jordan, you are not only working with a highly competent builder, but also a future life long friend.
It takes a team to summit a mountain and all trips start with proper planning. Kristi has been the partner that has been the sounding block, the champion of the cause, and the person that pushes the team to strive harder. As wife to Jordan and sister to Angie, you can see how excellence surrounds itself with excellence. Kristi’s passion for the outdoors, family health and nutrition, and desire to raise her family in the sporting community has been her inspiration to create a product for others to experience the goodness that comes from spending time in nature and in fellowship together. As a mother of five children, she feels the desire to create a legacy that goes far beyond herself and instills her passions in her children for the future.
Interior Design / Concierge
Angie is the creative driving force behind the first Nomadic Shack. The original Quack Shack structure on her land in Quill Lakes (what was to be a seasonal watefowl hunting camp), ignited a fire that has been buring bright in her to create for others enjoyment. She was formally the Director of Marketing for Cambria Quartz Surfaces where she designed and managed construction projects throughout the US and Canada. Her primary focus was sporting arenas and design studios. Her passion for building runs deep in her soul. Her personal works have been featured in many publications and most recently in Midwest Home magazine. Yet her passion for life’s adventures goes far beyond just construction. She is a renowned photographer, accomplished waterfowler, and her greatest project is being a wife and mother of five children. When a client wants to complete their shack with a full concierge service, Angie steps in and brings the Shack to completion.
All of the designs, inspirations, awards and success with our team start at one central location; the hands on daily construction of our products. As a teacher, encourager, passionate trained carpenter with hundreds of completed homes under his guidance, Jim is a key part to our success. His infectious, positive attitude and desire to teach all who will listen; ensure we will always have a team of well trained and motivated builders. As a craftsman, Jim takes great pride in not only building the visions set out before him in a set of custom plans, but also has a deep respect for the materials he works with. Many of our structures are built from very old, one of a kind, and irreplaceable materials. This means that Jim and his team of craftsmen do not have the luxury of making the wrong cut. They treat each piece of reclaimed wood or fixture for what they are, art. It’s subscribing to this set of values that separates our production team from all other builders and ensures only the highest quality finished product.
Jill of All Trades
Jenny has worn many hats in her life. She’s been professional architectural photographer, art director, stylist, interior designer, real estate agent, and business manager, all of which have helped her become a “Jill of all trades” at Nomadic Shack. She has always had a passion for the shelter industry and fell in love the moment she laid eyes on her first Nomadic Shack. The concept of living in an exquisitely designed space that compliments its outdoor environments and brings the outdoors, inside perfectly mirrors her approach to life—living simply in minimal space, traveling, and having the freedom to pursue adventure. When she’s not working, you’ll find her immersed in outdoor adventures as she travels with her husband and two children.
