Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff had fiance Chris Marek wearing two hats recently as she’s decided to make the big push off the farm. Despite the major change in the Little People, Big World matriarch’s life, she didn’t go too far. It seems Amy purchased a new home just a stone’s throw away from the Roloff Farm.

It appears Chris Marek, the man Amy recently became engaged to, had a hand in the house purchase. He put on his real estate agent hat while she looked for a new home. So during the last few months, it looks like Chris not only filled the role of Amy’s love interest, but he did double duty as her agent as well.
The house sits on 0.16 acres of land in Hillsboro, Oregon. While the dwelling is mammoth, the property is tiny compared to the 35-acre farm. Amy gives up a lot of sprawling acreage in this move. Plus, she’s leaving the home that the Little People, Big World bunch called home for years.
The famous mom has 3,767 square feet of room in her new house to ramble around in. The price ticket for this her very own Little People, Big World home of her own – $588,500. From what reports indicate, Amy Roloff closed on the property back on September 27.

The Little People, Big World mother stands only 4-feet-2-inches tall. That’s more than a foot shorter than the average adult American woman stands, according to documented statistics.
The average size for an American adult woman is 5-foot-3.5 inches. For a man, the average size in this country is 5-foot-9. So the kitchen counters, the bathroom sinks, along with many other things people take for granted might be too tall for her.
