The Crab’s Homestead blog is a collaboration of all of our family’s how-to’s that we have learned over the last few years of homesteading and the becoming minimalists. It began with our passion to live more self sufficiently, being aware of what we eat, what we feed our children, the chemicals around us everyday, and how we can teach our children to be more self reliant. We have tried Aquaponics, Raising Rabbits, Incubating and raising Chickens & Tukeys, Building Fences, Building things in general, Canning, Processing Our Own Food, Homeschooling, and much more. Through set backs and many “re-do’s” we are inventing, discovering, learning, and researching our way through websites, books, and our own personal experience in the small homesteaders way of life.

We finally decided to buy a 1999 Flat Nose International School Bus and convert it into a Tiny House/ Skoolie! Now, we are looking for a new homesteading location to start a new chapter in our lives by living 100% debt free. Follow us through our new journey to minimalistic living, and eventually to a new and bigger homestead where the sky is the limit!!

Morgan Crabtree lives in a self-converted 1999 International Genesis School Bus, Chitty Bang, with her husband, Ryon, of 15 years; two daughters, Rion and Laila; their English Mastiff, Mila; and their orange cat Micio. They have been living tiny since November 2016 and enjoying their many adventures while traveling together. She holds a bachelor’s degree of Science in Management, works online via her website and social media, is also a contributing writer to online blogs and magazines, and a Young Living Distributor. She is also the wife of a U.S. Army combat veteran (also her high school sweetheart!), mother and educator of two incredibly brave and intelligent young women, an avid barefoot and yoga enthusiast, a student of healthy living and financial intelligence, and a world collider. She enjoys sharing their story and encouraging others to think outside of the box and follow their dreams with any helpful advice she can give along the way.
