The Drummond family made a big move! This past year, Pioneer Woman‘s Ree Drummond moved out of the home where she and husband Ladd raised their kids.
Ree Drummond Makes A Big Move With Her Husband as Family Continues to Endure Changes
The couple decided to downsize, leaving their original house in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, which is the same one Ladd grew up in and is nearly 50 years old.
”It wasn’t a charming 50-year-old house. We loved raising our kids in the house, but it had foundation problems and had developed a few problems that were going to be pretty overwhelming to fix,” she tells the outlet.
However, the Drummond family didn’t have to go far. Ree, 53, who will appear on talkshoplive on Tuesday to launch her first outdoor Walmart collection, says the new house is still on the family’s ranch in the same spot they’ve lived for 20 years.
“We wound up building a small house right next to our regular house over the past year. And we moved into it in December,” says the mom to kids Alex, 24, Paige, 22, Bryce, 19, Todd, 18, and foster son Jamar, 18.
Ree, as well as Ladd and Todd, were able to move into the new house almost seamlessly. “We packed our things and walked across the yard — it was so funny — and moved in,” she says.
Ree and Ladd plan on building a “main house” eventually and this new temporary space will ultimately serve as a “smaller guest house” where her kids can stay while visiting.
“When we build our main house, we’re only doing one or two bedrooms, so it’s not going to be a big mega house,” she says.
“But right now, we’re happy in the guest house. And this may be our ‘house, house’ for the time being. It’s very comfortable and again, simple. We had to be very selective about what we brought here.”
The Drummond dogs are also very happy with one new feature of the place.
“They set up shop on the front porch. They each have their own little bed on the front porch,” she says. “They’re outdoor dogs mostly anyway, and they have a whole barn to themselves if they want to go sleep in the barn sometimes, but they hardly ever leave the porch if we’re home. It’s really funny.”
