Did the Sister Wives family finally move to Coyote Pass? The polygamous Brown family moved from Las Vegas to Flagstaff, Arizona, in 2018 with the hopes to build new homes on their spacious property. But their plans to break ground have been delayed for more than five years as they struggled to get on the same page about whether to build one big home or several smaller homes, dealing with changes in their family structure and butted heads over how to navigate the coronavirus pandemic as a family. 

What Is The Brown Family Building On Coyote Pass?

Kody Brown had originally purchased the Coyote Pass property with the intention of living in one large house with all of his wives and his 18 children. However, all four of his spouses quickly shot down the idea.

Ultimately, to keep the peace, Kody agreed to build four separate homes on the property, but plans have been placed on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic after experiencing another delay as it took longer than they expected to sell their four homes in Las Vegas. Prior to their move to Arizona, all four sister wives lived next door to each other in the same Vegas cul-de-sac. Since their move to Flagstaff, they had been living apart in various homes in the area, and the distance has caused tension and a divide in their polygamous family. This eventually led to Kody to split from three out of his four wives over the course of two years.

Did The Brown Family Finally Move to Coyote Pass?

The Browns are not living together on Coyote Pass yet. As of March 2, 2023, there have been no building permits approved on the parcels of land Kody bought in 2018, In Touch confirmed, which means they have yet to break ground on their new homes. 

In June 2021, Janelle Brown became the first member of the Brown family to settle down on Coyote Pass as she opted to live in an RV parked on the property.

“So I have something fun to share. I acted boldly and seized an adventure,” Janelle wrote via Instagram at the time. “Lots to do out here on the land so I figured why not be onsite. Honestly I’m alternating between extreme excitement as I’ve always wanted to try this and anxiety at all the unknown variables.”

However, Janelle announced she moved off of Coyote Pass in November 2021, shortly after Christine Brown and Kody announced their split after 27 years of marriage.

Since their breakup, Christine sold her home in Flagstaff and moved to Utah. In July 2022, Christine sold her portion of the family’s Arizona land back to Kody for $10, according to property records obtained by In Touch. The full cash value of the parcel of land was valued at $213,420.

Following her move from the RV, Janelle rented a house in Flagstaff, In Touch confirmed in October 2022. In Touch exclusively confirmed her split from Kody in December 2022.

Meri Brown is still based in Flagstaff in her rental home, however, she splits her time between there and her inn in Utah. Meri and Kody hinted at a split in December 2022 and confirmed their breakup the following month.

Robyn Brown is still living in the Flagstaff home she and Kody purchased on a previous season of the show. She is Kody’s last remaining wife.

Do the Browns Owe Money on Coyote Pass?

Meri explained that the family hadn’t done “anything with the property yet” during a season 17 episode that aired in October 2022.

“It really just comes down to, in order to do anything with it, it has to be paid off,” she noted before referring to the family drama following Christine and Kody’s split. “I don’t even know. Honestly, the property is the furthest thing from my mind. Like, there’s a lot of family stuff that needs to be worked out.”

According to property tax records obtained by In Touch, Kody and his fourth wife, Robyn, owe $6,711.77 ​in total for the year 2022 for four of the ​six parcels on the Flagstaff, Arizona, property as of January 2023.

Kody and Robyn had already paid off half of the property taxes for three of the parcels, while the payments for those parcels were not counted as late or delinquent until June 2023.

However, there is one parcel they own that was considered delinquent because no taxes ​were paid on the property in 2022. The portion of the land — for which they owe $2,351.62 — was accruing interest and considered late.

In June 2023, Kody and Janelle paid off $340,000 on their Coyote Pass property, according to the Deed of Release and Full Reconveyance obtained by The U.S. Sun.

In addition to the Kody and Janelle’s land, a plot in wife Robyn’s name that was purchased for $170,000 has also been paid on June 2, 2023. However, in an August 2023 teaser clip for season 18 of Sister Wives, Kody expressed his doubts about the land.

“I don’t think we’re going to be building on this property by spring,” Kody explained. “Coming up with money to pay off Coyote Pass … very difficult. Coming up with a down payment on a house … not hard.”
