I enjoy Zach & Tori. Jer & Aud not so much.

Same here too!

Lordy, that part of showing the Jer & Aud torn apart kitchen brought back the nightmare of my torn apart kitchen upstairs & the downstairs with mold abatement several years ago. I spent almost a year (dealing with the Class Action Lawsuit w/San Francisco Court case from defective Phoenix brand pipes, they had to replace EVERY pipe in my house). Washing dishes in the bathtub, only a bathrm sink to use). No picnic!!! Oregon isn't that far south and one can totally LOSE the entire house due to mold.

Good that Jer was finally smart enough to get qualified contractors to take over, instead of trying to Do It Himself. If he had insisted on doing himself, I have no doubt he would have lost his wife & kid in no time. It's hard work washing dishes in the bathtub, believe me from experience!

When the Courts were insisting on another 4 month investigation as to whether my sewer pipes were also Phoenix brand before they would pay - I wrote a letter to the court Pleading for Mercy From the Court". Showing pictures of the Phoenix sewer pipes with five obvious splices in previous splits. Every one of 5 plumbers yelled "that's illegal". I offered to mail the actual pipes to the Court itself.

"They stink a bit, but I had the plumber save every single pipe as evidence and I will pay to ship them to you. November is almost here and I don't know how to tolerate another winter with no insulation. As a handicapped person, I can hardly walk for 3-4 days after bending over washing dishes in the bathtub."

Got a phone call from the court the next day expressing sympathy and saying the check was in the mail.

Yeah, it was a yearlong nightmare! Fortunate for me that it happened when I was a bit younger because there is no way I could wash dishes in the bathtub these days, or running up & down stairs dealing with plumber/contractors/tear-out guys in Haz Mat suits. Aside from the pipes which the lawsuit paid, none of the $34K in repairs was covered.

Like I said Jer & Aud were smarter to get contractors!

The second time, they were.

I would be investing in paper plates..

But they had bottles to deal with.

And while I don't much enjoy Aug, she was also are place where she was a very new mom, hormonal, and their daughter needed surgery and the plumbing went bad AND they had camera crews.

Anyone would be super stressed!!!

I believe that Jeremy feels that he is entitled to the big house & is trying to push his mother out. He's said things in the past that made me feel like he wants to move his family into the big house & run the farm or that running the farm would be contingent on him living in the big house. It seems like Matt & Jer want her to move out so that one of them can move in the big house.

I don't think either of the boys are that interested in running the farm but it probably sounds more enticing that getting a 9-5 job. The TLC money can't last forever.

I thought Zach had talked with Matt about taking over the stool business a year or so ago but I don't see any indication that that has happened.

Amy went through this once in the divorce settlement, I don't blame her for being pissed about this renegotiation effort. I think that one of them needs to buy out the other or sell it & move on.

I would think the farm wouldn't be as viable as a tourist destination if it was no longer on TV. It didn't become a working farm until after the show started. Of course, having the boys live & work on the farm keeps them in the TLC spotlight as well.

One would think there would be enough room for another family in that house...it housed 4 growing children at one point. Surely it could be renovated to provide separate living quarters if somebody else wanted to move in. Why should Amy have to go through the trouble of moving somewhere that wouldn't be as accessible for her?

I think Amy hit the nail on the head when she said there was something else going on that just wasn't being said.
I think more may have been said off-camera. That house is huge. There is no reason Amy can't stay there and have another part of the house renovated for one of the kids. After all, there are two other children who should be considered in all of this.
I really like how Amy is not relying on a proposal from Chris and a life with him outside of the farm.
There's 40 acres! Each of them could have a house and still have room. Personally, I wish Matt would be the first to move away. His constant manipulation (the conversation about the divorce decree and how the money was split from the farm was a perfect example) is becoming more and more obvious.

The Roloff farm is actually 110 acres! More than enough for more than one house and a double-wide. Didn't Matt mention at one time a few seasons ago that he envisioned a sort of family compound where everyone had a home on the farm (all of the kids, since at the time I believe Amy and Matt were still married.

Jeremy wants that house. I hope Amy holds onto the house and that she should live alone. That property is big enough for all to have their own homes but I do understand all wanting to get their hands on the current jewel of the property.

I think I would be inclined to give the house to Zach before Jeremy simply because it is more accessible for a little person. Regardless, it is Amy's house and she should do with it what she wishes and not let anyone else dictate to her.

Matt should have thought about not wanting to live in the doublewide when they got divorced. It seems to be assumed amy would leave and live with Chris. What about Matt? nothing has been mentioned about karen moving to the farm or him moving to be at her house.

Caryn used Amy's name as the enemy way too much for my taste in talking to Matt in this episode. She is egging him on that he must break away, not wait for Amy, etc.

I also remember when they talked about turning the property into a family compound. With all that acreage you think that Amy and Matt would never see each other if they positioned their homes opposite ends. LOL I thought it was a brilliant concept at the time and I still think it's a terrific idea and I have no clue why they haven't pursued this.

That's an excellent point that the house is set up for a little person so Zack should get it. But unfortunately Jeremy seems to be the Golden Child of the family... well that's my opinion anyway.

Zack is closer to his mom and Her seems more so with his dad.

Jacob seems to hang more with Amy.

Audrey and Jeremy are more controversial online due to some things they have posted, but within the family, not sure.

I have read that Jacob and Audrey don't getvalong, but certainly that isn't verified.

110 acres! Well, good grief, they could definitely figure out a plan for everyone to stay IF that's what they really want.
I sound like a broken record...I don't like Caryn. She keeps giving this vibe and I keep thinking she is nothing like what she appears on camera. The more the conversations are being aired, the more it seems like they are sharing only what they feel they have to and everything else is being handled privately.
I think Matt is just looking for what will benefit him most and that's it. I think Amy would just like to have a little change as possible and stay on the farm that's she's so accustomed to being a part of.
