He has a dream! Sister Wives star Kody Brown really wants his whole family to live under one roof, even though his wives are pretty against the idea. On the March 31 episode of the TLC series, the Brown family patriarch got one step closer to making his dream a reality when he got to see plans made up for a possible house in Flagstaff, Arizona that his four wives and 18 kids could all share with him. But that was in 2018 — did the Browns end up building the house or what? Check out the video above to see the moment Kody saw a draft of the house for the first time.
In the plans Kody had drawn up, each of his wives — Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown and Robyn Brown — have their own section of the house in Flagstaff. There was also a main section of the house where the whole family could potentially gather together. Now that the Browns have moved to Arizona as planned, are they living in this dream home of Kody’s?
The Browns were still living separately as of early April — and they’re definitely not next door to one another like they used to be. Radar Online reported on February 27 that first wife Meri is renting a four-bedroom, five-bathroom home worth $861,179 in the Brown family’s new city. Her home is nine miles from Kody, 50, and Christine’s three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The outlet reported that Meri, 48, is 13 miles from Janelle’s $347,000 home, which she is renting for $2,900, and Christine, 46, and Kody’s home is they’re 12 miles away from Janelle, 49, and 8.5 miles away from Robyn, 40.
But do the Brown wives really want to live right on top of each other as Kody envisioned anyway? On the March 10 episode of Sister Wives, Christine said, “I would happily live next door to [my sister wives] for the rest of my life. Absolutely. With them? No, no. Have you met them?” Though she laughed, it was clear she was semi-serious about needing some privacy. And while live-tweeting the episode, Kody’s third wife wrote, “One big house?? I told Shelbi [the family’s real estate agent] IT. WAS. NOT. HAPPENING.”
As of early 2019, the huge house Kody wants his whole family to live in does not exist. But it’s not clear whether the giant residence is still a possibility. It may depend on whether Kody can get all his wives on board — and the chances don’t look good for him at the moment.
