‘LPBW’: Matt Roloff Thought it Would Take Amy Roloff Years to Move Her Things Off of Roloff Farms
The new season of Little People, Big World is here, and we’re excited to see all of the latest from the Roloff family. Last season, Amy made the major decision to sell her half of Roloff Farms to Matt post-divorce. And now, we’re following Amy as she gets her ducks in a row, searches for a new home, and prepares for her big move.
Those who follow Amy on social media know she’s already bought a new home just 15 minutes away from the farm property. And thanks to the help of her friends, family, and partner, Chris Marek, she’s nearly finished with the move. But on the show, Matt noted that he thought Amy would drag her feet getting off the farm. Here’s what he said.
Amy Roloff is nearly finished with her move off Roloff Farms
Selling her half of Roloff Farms and moving wasn’t an easy decision for Amy. Post-divorce, she lived in the big farmhouse while Matt took over the smaller home on the other side of the property. But she finally decided she needed to start her new life elsewhere — and thankfully, she was able to find the perfect place in a neighborhood close by.
From packing up all of her things to working with the contractors to making her house a true home, Amy’s followers have watched her journey since the end of 2019 via her Instagram. And it seems she’s finally almost finished with the move.
“I’m thrilled to see some light at the end of this long journey of moving, purging, packing and moving into my new house. Woohoo!” Amy captioned an Instagram post. “Sometimes I don’t know whether to jump up and yell ‘Hooray’ or cry. I do know I feel relieved. … So I see the light at the end of this tunnel and I think I’ll make my end date- end of February. Yippee!”
Amy thought Matt didn’t trust that she was caring for the farmhouse
The current season of LPBW backtracks to when Amy first began packing her things. And she noted that it seemed as if Matt didn’t trust that she was taking care of the big farmhouse while she lived there.
“I wanted to go through and make sure there wasn’t any rot or decay or any major things, water leakage issues, and things like that,” Matt noted to the cameras.” For that reason, Matt brought in a specialist who “knows the house inside and out” to evaluate the home Amy lived in.
Unfortunately, Amy wasn’t too pleased with this. “This is my ex coming into a house that he’s lived in. And I thought, ‘this is ridiculous,'” Amy commented. “I definitely got the feeling that I don’t think he trusted that I would maintain the house or keep the house in shape. That’s just not a good feeling for me. He just anticipates that he’s going into a rundown house.”
Matt noted he thought it’d take Amy much longer to move all of her belongings
Those who watched the premiere saw the tension between Amy and Matt when discussing the farm. While Amy made it known she was leaving it all behind and working to find a new place, Matt seemed doubtful she’d have any pep in her step.
During a conversation with girlfriend Caryn Chandler, Matt discussed how Amy appeared to be dragging her feet with making an offer.
“It’s scary,” Chandler noted. “She’s never bought a house on her own before. You’ve always been sort of the driving force.”
“Amy’s not known for quick decisions, and so she missed a couple that she wants,” Matt then told the camera. “She could purchase a place and it could be another two years before she moves her stuff out. So, that’s what I’m assuming is gonna happen.” Matt then seemed to get into an argument with one of the producers of the show who went on to defend Amy.
“I’m thinking she’s gonna take a long time,” Matt then told Chandler. “I’m not holding my breath.”
We know Amy didn’t take two years to move. Once she found the perfect place, she’s worked hard to move quickly and efficiently off the farm. Now, we’ll wait and see what else will occur on this season of LPBW!
