The 26-year-old looked to be hard at work helping build the family’s new home.
Wearing a pair of work overalls covered in dirt, Jacob kept his head down as he walked in front of a wood chopper.
“The Mill man at work ..helping his Dad cut wood for the new house,” Matt captioned the photo.
Matt and his twin sons had a falling out after the Roloff patriarch refused their offer to purchase the family farm and decided to sell a portion of the property instead.
Matt, however, recently claimed that his relationship with at least Zach is slowly improving.
“The status of the relationship, if I had to summarize it, I would say it’s on the right path,” the star explained in an interview with ET Online,.
“I’m talking to Zach every day, it’s not easy but it’s going in the right direction I would say and we don’t have big expectations.”
Confirming that he hasn’t sold the farm, Matt said: “Plan B is actually taking place right now. All of the families that looked at the farm but couldn’t get their heads around the long-term commitment of purchasing it are now gonna be able to stay here as a short-term rental.”
But Matt is still making plans for an uncertain future.
The U.S. Sun can exclusively reveal the Little People, Big World patriarch has put measures in place to keep control of the farm even after his death.
In a Bargain and Sale Deed exclusively obtained by The U.S. Sun, Matt transferred parcels of land from Matthew J. Roloff to Matt Roloff Living Trust for a sale price of $0 on June 24, 2022.
The parcels of land include 15.68 acres, 16.60 acres, 91.56 acres, and 19.97 acres, making the total 143.81 acres.
Moving the acres into a trust came just weeks after he put 16 acres of the farm up for sale for a whopping $4million on May 12.
Beverly Hills attorney Adam Michael Sacks exclusively explained to The U.S. Sun why the reality star would transfer the farm to a trust.
The attorney explained how the trust could come in handy amid Matt’s feud with his twin sons.
He said: “The trust can make a plan to maintain the property until he dies, or give it to the kids, or give it to whoever. They have to do what the trust says.
“If your father is not married and passes away, his kids can just split the property. But if he makes a will, he can say, ‘I don’t leave anything to my kids.’” If he doesn’t want his kids to get it and puts it in a trust, the kids can’t fight over it. It’s whatever the trust says.
“If he didn’t have a will or trust, it would go to the next relatives. If he has a will, he does what the will says. When you set up a trust, you do need to spell it out.”
A trust could also protect Matt legally, as Michael explained: “This can be for legal lawsuit liability reasons. If you’re a doctor and your patient sues for malpractice, if you have a multi-million house in your name, they can take it from you. So you put the house in a trust.
“The trust is a separate entity, it’s holding it for you. If you lose a lawsuit they can’t go after the trust. It protects you from liability. The trust becomes the owner of the property.”
