welcome to under a tin roof!

Hey there! We are so glad you are here. Have you been meandering about our website, or maybe this is your first stop? If so, welcome! We are Jill and Kayla Haupt, two girls, a mother and daughter duo, working together to create content that we love. This website is a couple of things: our blog, our online shop, and our connection to you. This is where the magic happens, where we share an open door to our lifestyle and brand. Jill, on the left, founded this company over 20 years ago. Then it was called Jillian Haupt & Co. and was a way for Jill to creatively express herself while Kayla was a toddler. She created custom murals and painted children's furniture. Now, Kayla is grown up, and we decided to rebrand the business to Under A Tin Roof, named after the tin roofed studio we create in.

A lot has changed since then, and it still continues to evolve today! Now we are sharing our journey in homesteading on a little less than an acre of land, teaching embroidery, and traveling to art shows across the country. Have you heard of Country Living Fair? We go to all of those! This small business is growing and growing with your help. Our aim is to inspire others to be more self sustainable, to show you that growing your own food is easier than you might think, and to help you hone in on a new craft. Feel free to wander around and let us know how we can help you!



Want to learn More about us?


on the hunt for organic, local food?

We are very passionate about supporting organic farmers, and even more so about sourcing locally raised and grown food. We are currently on the hunt to finding local, organic farms around the US and providing their information on our Farms Page for you to more easily find! Head over there now to see if there is an awesome organic farm in your area. Know of a farm? Or maybe you own one? Let us know - we're always looking for more locations to add to our list!


Our Blog is all about living a simple life of beauty!

From our favorite recipes and researching herbal medicines to our experience growing our own food in the backyard, we hope that our blog inspires others to live more simply and presently in their everyday lives. We loved watching others across the internet moving from the big city to live life out in the country. While we love country living, it was the homes in town that appealed more to us and our budget! Our goal is to prove that anyone, anywhere can grow their own food, raise small livestock like bees and chickens, and slow down while still living their lives normally. On our blog you can find our hands on experiences, tips from us on how we operate our homestead, DIY ideas and whole food recipes, and even some ramblings on our journeys as mothers.
