The Thermalands is a small community in the foothills of Placer County, California. Subdivided and marketed in the early 1920’s for its ability to grow substantial citrus crops and harvest many weeks earlier, the Thermalands flourished with farm plots of all sorts.

The thermally buffered rolling hills graced with grand oaks have served as the perfect setting to develop our homestead and build our dreams. Thermaland Oaks alludes to the splendor and viability that drew us to plant our roots here to raise crops and critters on our piece of this bountiful earth.

Thermaland Oaks is a place where we can come together to discover life's simple pleasures. 

designing a life we love

While building from raw land our Modern Farmhouse & Dream Homestead one nail at a time!

and we're happy to share it with you

our life is our love story

Overwhelmed by the commercial saturation consuming every aspect of our lives, we turned to self sufficiency and living off the land. I'm Christina, the now Farmgirl, Crazy Goat Lady & Builder who took to learning how to homestead from the ground up. I have created this page in order to share all that I have learned on this journey to aid others attempting to shake the processed and packaged lifestyle consuming our lives.

My husband, Trevor & I have created our homestead through our passion and love for a more pure and holistic lifestyle and hope we can help you build yours.

Living out here requires a fervent dedication to what truly matters most. A separation from materialism and commercialism allows a greater focus on nurturing sustenance and shelter into an ideal reality of our dreams. Join us on our journey here at Thermaland Oaks.

Nutritionist, Farm girl, & Founder of Thermaland Oaks

My long term goals: Design Thermaland Oaks Product Line and Create a Legacy for my Family


Agriculture Pilot, Builder & Creative Director


From Bay Area raised to attending college at CSU Chico studying Nutrition, and now settling down on our homestead in the foothills of Placer County. I have learned to take my passion of healthy food, wellness, and farm to fork mentality into a lifestyle. I absolutely love to plant my garden and harvest the most nutritious and seasonal foods possible. Follow along and learn with me in my endeavors of developing our homestead. As we delve into our triumphs and tribulations I want to share our DIY process and construction as we add on for Phase 2 of our modern farmhouse build.

Trevor is a jack of all trades. I never knew when I found the man of my dreams he would be able to one day build our home from the ground up. We are 20 something year olds who are learning what the American dream is. We bought a piece of dirt and are building our dream home from the ground up and learning all about ‘for better and worse’. Trevor has successfully learned how to be a plumber, electrician, framer, roofer, and every other trade you can think of in order to successfully build a home by googling, you-tubing, and reading how to books.

He also is the more reasonable one when it comes to the amount of animals we gather on our homestead, if it was not for him I would have an arc.

Our bundle of joy farm girls. Everything we do is to build legacy for them and to teach them a different way of life!

Frankie & Georgie
