The Coastal Homestead Family

About Us

Welcome! I'm Amber of The Coastal Homestead. We live on the coast in a tourist community, about as far from the farm life as you can get, but somehow we make it work. 
In the middle of the chaos, HOA's, county laws, the keeping up with the Jone's and full-time jobs we are able to find simplicity and connect with nature and our roots.  

As a married mother of three, self-employed contractor, 4-H leader, herb society president, writer, blogger, community volunteer, and a DIYer, I understand the daily struggles of running a household, being a single mother, financial stress, sickness, and obstacles because I've been there. I've walked in those shoes and I have learned from many of my mistakes along the way. 

I share our journey about creating a homestead with what you have, having less and enjoying more, and empowering you to do the same.
