About Under A Tin Roof!

Welcome! We are Jill + Kayla Haupt. Together we own Under a Tin Roof, a small business built around our love of all things handmade, country living, and our bond as mother and daughter.

After living most of our lives in the Midwest, we decided to pack up and take an adventure to the South in Houston, Texas. As much as we enjoyed the change of pace, there was an even bigger part of us that wanted to be back in the land that we call home. We are now located in Kalona, Iowa, a farm town with German/Swiss roots and one of the largest Amish communities in the United States. We love seeing the horse and buggies drive past our house everyday!

Jillian Haupt & Co. began in 1997 when Jill started out painting custom murals in people's homes. The business has changed quite a bit over the years, and now we create items for those who want live slower, simpler lives. Some of these items include clothing, home goods, all natural bath and beauty, and unique art pieces. Each of our products is designed to give you a memory of the way dry goods used to be made - by hand! We want to give you a fresh take on the beauty that is authentic, handmade goods. 

Our website also includes our blog, where we share do-it-yourself projects for your home, recipes, personal style, art shows, thoughts on motherhood, and our favorite moments from our lives. Thank you for taking the time to read! We hope to inspire you and give you a nostalgic feeling of the simple life. If you would like to know more about us, click on the photos below!
