Now Matt, 61, has updated fans with a progress photo of his brand new farmhouse.

The reality star took to his Instagram feed on Friday to share a snap of stakes covering the land where the farmhouse will be built.

In the background sat a small wooden cabin, construction materials, and tree-covered mountains looming in the distance.

Matt captioned his post: “After 5 years of planning… that first bit of rebar gets put down… it’s going to go up fast from here… hopefully.”

As the family patriarch begins construction on his long-awaited new home, he has praised his son Jacob, 26, for helping in the process.

In a previous Instagram post, the TLC star snapped his son hard at work building the family’s new home.

Wearing a pair of work overalls covered in dirt, Jacob kept his head down as he walked in front of a wood chopper.

“The Mill man at work… helping his Dad cut wood for the new house,” Matt captioned the photo.

However, no mention was made of his older twin sons Jeremy and Zach.


Matt and the twins had a fall out after the Roloff patriarch refused their offer to buy the family farm and decided to sell a portion of the property instead.

The father-of-four, however, recently claimed that his relationship with at least Zach is slowly improving.

“The status of the relationship, if I had to summarize it, I would say it’s on the right path,” the star explained in an interview with ET Online.

“I’m talking to Zach every day, it’s not easy but it’s going in the right direction I would say and we don’t have big expectations.”

Confirming that he hasn’t sold the farm, Matt said: “Plan B is actually taking place right now. All of the families that looked at the farm but couldn’t get their heads around the long-term commitment of purchasing it are now gonna be able to stay here as a short-term rental.”


But Matt is still making plans for an uncertain future.

The US Sun exclusively revealed that Matt has put measures in place to keep control of the farm even after his death.

In a Bargain and Sale Deed exclusively obtained by The US Sun, Matt transferred parcels of land from Matthew J. Roloff to Matt Roloff Living Trust for a sale price of $0 on June 24, 2022.

The parcels of land include 15.68 acres, 16.60 acres, 91.56 acres, and 19.97 acres, making a total of 143.81 acres.

Moving the acres into a trust came just weeks after he put 16 acres of the farm up for sale for a whopping $4million on May 12.

Beverly Hills attorney Adam Michael Sacks exclusively explained to The US Sun why the reality star would transfer the farm to a trust.

The attorney explained how the trust could come in handy amid Matt’s feud with his twin sons.

He said: “The trust can make a plan to maintain the property until he dies, or give it to the children, or give it to whoever. They have to do what the trust says.

“If your father is not married and passes away, his children can just split the property. But if he makes a will, he can say, ‘I don’t leave anything for my children.’ If he doesn’t want his kids to get it and put it in a trust, the kids can’t fight over it. It’s whatever the trust says.

“If he didn’t have a will or trust, he would go to the next relatives. If he has a will, he does what the will says. When you set up a trust, you do need to spell it out.”

A trust could also protect Matt legally, as Michael explained: “This can be for legal lawsuit liability reasons. If you’re a doctor and your patient sues for malpractice, if you have a multi-million house in your name, they can take it from you. So you put the house in a trust.

“The trust is a separate entity, it’s holding it for you. If you lose a lawsuit they can’t go after the trust. It protects you from liability. The trust becomes the owner of the property.”
