About Howdy Owl
Meet The Owners
Brett & Kate Lofing
In the spring of 2015 Brett & Kate Lofing founded Howdy Owl in the garage of their personal residence in Ashland, NE. When the couple first met, they always had the dream to one day own their own business, and in 2015 that dream became a reality. They purchased a small CNC Machine and began carving different designs into wood. Several months were spent experimenting & designing - trying to find just the right combination of paints, stains, and types of wood. Many items were made for friends and family and some sales were made online. At the end of 2015, Howdy Owl began to sell their popular wood carved US & World Maps online and outgrew the space in the two-stall garage. They moved to a small warehouse space in Lincoln, NE and eventually grew into a 7000 sq ft warehouse space where they can be found today. With a few large scale CNC machines, a flat bed printer, and roll printer Howdy Owl can make just about any home or office wall decor to fit your needs. While our US & World Maps are our specialty, we also offer many other styles of wood wall art, family name signs, business signs, nursery decor, framed canvas prints, and provide unique gift ideas for any occasion!
When Brett & Kate aren't at Howdy Owl, you'll find them with their 3 boys... full of energy, and very busy! Nights and weekends are filled with basketball, football, baseball, soccer, and other school events. But, the couple wouldn't have it any other way. Having a family, and owning their own business was the goal from the day they met.
