Casey ~ Drunken Goat

We had a front desk position open for over six months because of the lack of housing. We love this idea and would love to be involved in growing our community.

Michelle ~ Dogma

I haven't taken a vacation in over two years because I can't keep enough employees. This is already a common housing style in Europe and I am happy to see it come to Edwards.

Pascal ~ Gore Range Brewery
