Ashley Lilly & Monty Henry| Moab, Fall 2020

Hello! We are Monty Henry and Ashley Lilly. We have been in a long term relationship for the last 9 years. We have both lived in Moab for more than 15 years and we both have worked in the mountain bike industry for over a decade plus. Mountain biking is our passion, and finding adventures is our way of life. We travel often and have yet to find another destination we love more than here. We love living in Moab and are very excited to live in our forever home that we built with Community Rebuilds!

Bryan Beachum | Moab, Fall 2019

Born and raised in a small town in Michigan right near the lake shore. I traded the humidity, lakes and rivers for the arid climate and red rocks of Moab in 2012 without looking back. I stumbled through Moab after finishing the 2011 season teaching snow boarding in Park City. Since then, the discovery seems to always continue, whether it’s hidden gems of areas surrounding, new friends or of myself which I find thrives in this place. Orion is my canine companion as of December this past year. Together we go just about everywhere together, whether it’s work or play. We spend our time soaking in the beautiful surroundings of the delicate landscapes, hiking, flying, and constantly meeting new people. Thank you Moab and Community Rebuilds for this incredible opportunity!

Chelsea Cobb | Moab, Spring 2019

My name is Chelsea. The first time I came to Moab was in the spring of 2007 on a climbing trip with a group of friends. I didn’t know what to expect, but after that first visit, the taste of sagebrush and blooming russian olives still lingers in my nostrils. I drove west again that summer and became like so many others here: completely captured by the landscape. I made the move to Moab at the end of 2013 and haven’t looked back. 


I love the way the sunrise and sunset shine new light on this place. Every hour gives a new perspective to the vastness, and each year I spend here gives me a greater appreciation for this place and the community of people who call it home.

Sarah Sorg | Moab, Spring 2019

Born in Paris, I was raised by a family of culinary artists, painters and musicians. After working in fashion, cinema and journalism I decided it was time to try something new somewhere else, I packed my bags full of books and shoes and hit the open road for the other side of the sea. A short accidental skydiving trip to Moab ended my life as I knew it, I went back to what had been home for the past 7 years, London, divorced my husband, sold my car, gave my cat and all my belongings away and moved to Moab to be a full time monkey. 

Life is as wondrous as we make it!

Sheila Strahan | Moab, Spring 2019

Hi, I’m Sheila! I absolutely love Moab: the community, the desert, the wild! I am passionate about music, education, and this beautiful desert we live in. I moved here in 2005 after working seasonally for the Moab Music Festival for 5 years and made ends meet by working for the festival and teaching piano lessons. Once here, I discovered two things: 1. that I LOVE working with little kids, so I changed careers to become a teacher full time, and 2. that I LOVE these canyons, this desert, and especially finding natural arches. My time is pretty much taken up working with kids and trying my best to instill in them a love of learning through fun projects and the arts, and by spending my time exploring and recharging in the desert. I’m so grateful to get to build an energy efficient home that is part of this beautiful desert, and to know that I will have a secure place to live here for many years to come.

Mikalyn Steinbrueck | Moab, Spring 2018

Mikalyn Steinbrueck was born and raised in Longmont, Colorado where she learned to love and live in the great outdoors. After spending four years studying film theory and production at the University of Notre Dame in the midwest, she returned to her roots out west and moved to Laramie, Wyoming and become an elementary school teacher. When greater adventure called in 2015, Mikalyn moved to Moab where she has spent most of her time running over red rock, backpacking through canyons, and sleeping under the desert sky.

 

Mikalyn is so excited and grateful to be an owner of one of these natural and sustainable, solar-powered homes, which she shares with her golden retriever, Wild. As a 1st grade teacher, she hopes to share some of this journey with her students, inspiring them to engage in practices that celebrate and give back to the earth.

Marie Brophy | Moab, Spring 2018

I'm Marie! I moved to Moab in 2013, and my dog Gabe, who has been with my family for 11 years, joined me in 2014.  We are originally from Oregon, but my family has since spread all over the country.  Looking for a change of scene and more sunshine, I planned a move to Colorado.  But I stopped in Moab for three weeks along the way and fell in love with this place.

I have now been working for Moab Desert Adventures guiding climbing and canyoneering expeditions for over four years.  Every day I get to play in this incredible desert and share it with people from all over.  My goal is to help others see the beauty of this place, so that they will want to protect it as I do.  My family loves to visit us here and knows they are always in for an adventure when they do.  I am beyond thankful to have built a house with Community Rebuilds, so Gabe and I can have a home to call our own.

The Dickeys | Moab, Spring 2018

I'm Kathy! I moved to Moab 20 years ago from Tempe, AZ. I work as a nurse at Moab Regional Hospital. I bought my single wide trailer 11 years ago and remember being so happy to have a place of my own. Before purchasing the trailer, I lived in an off grid camper in the desert – I have indeed upgraded. Thanks to Community Rebuilds I will have a chance to have an energy efficient home, which will be new to me. I met my husband, Dustin, 10 years ago and we have one dog named Indy. Dustin and I opened  bike shop in the Spring of 2017. We are looking forward to contributing to the build of our home and not contributing as much to carbon output!

Anne Hayes | Moab, Spring 2017

Anne Hays built her home in the Spring of 2016. Originally from the San Fransisco Bay Area, Anne moved to Moab about 5 years ago after a spell of bad weather during a camping trip left her stranded. She filled out job and housing application and hasn't looked back. Ann is a former paramedic for Grand County EMS, has also served at several local establishments

Anne was very excited to participate in the CR program. Between rent increases, homeowners selling, and and a house fire, she experienced a rocky housing situation in Moab prior to building her CR home.

Kelli Quinn | Moab, Spring 2017

Kelli built her home with CR in the Spring of 2016. Kelli grew up in central Pennsylvania and lived in the northern Adirondacks of New York for a while before moving to Moab in 2014. Moab’s unique and beautiful environment as well as the grand escapades to be had in its backyard made the southwest instantly drew her in, and Kelli is now a Vegetation Management Field Lead for the National Park Service. 

Kelli enjoys climbing, mt./biking, boating, skiing in the LaSals in the winter, and just being outdoors. Finding so much inspiration in Moab, she is very excited to have been able to lay down roots in the area.

Daniela Runge | Mount Crested Butte, 2016

Daniela was a part of building the first CR duplex during the summer and fall of 2016. Originally from Argentina, she moved to Crested Butte in 2001 to work for the Adaptive Sports Center, teaching people with disabilities how to ski. It was supposed to be just one season, but she never left. Through Adaptive, she has been able to start similar programs in her home country. To complement her winter job, she started a landscaping business in 2006.


Daniela has 2 kids, Alvaro, who is 19 years old and currently in Argentina attending music school, and Kai, who is 10 years old. They are incredibly excited to have a home in CB!

Andrew Arell | Mount Crested Butte, 2016

Andrew was also a part of the first CR duplex in Mount Crested Butte during 2016. These two homes were a whole new experience for CR, as it was a complicated design build built at almost 10,000 feet elevation! 

 

A jack of all trades, master of none… Andrew has had a few fits and starts of various careers, but at present finds himself coordinating mountain sport events for a local non-profit, Nordic Center.

 

Andrew and his two sons, Asher and Isaac, are very excited to be homeowners in the town their family has grown up in.

David Casper | Moab, Fall 2016

David (pronounced Dove-Id) built his home with CR in the Fall of 2016. While originally from Jersey he found his way to Moab through a cross country trip 6 years ago. Since then he's lived in the area on and off – but now with this house, permanently.

Moab has allowed David to get his massage practice off the ground, as well as finding an opportunity to get back into mental health services. David has enjoyed planting fruit trees in his spacious garden, as well as having a place his two wonderful pups to run around. He was also lucky enough to find a plot of land with a shed that he hopes to turn into a sculpture studio some day.

The Spade-Phillips Family | Moab, Fall 2016

Tamar is originally from Scotland but after many travels, she landed in Moab in 2013. Stuart, is from Salt Lake City but has lived in Moab since 2008 on and off – but mostly on.

 
They met in Australia in 2012, got married in Las Vegas in 2014, their fabulous baby Ivy was born in Moab in October of 2015, and in the Fall of 2016 they built their CR home!

Sarah Ball | Moab, Spring 2016

Sarah Ball moved to Moab in 1999 and works as a licensed massage therapist. Sarah bought her trailer in 2007 and has been enjoying her stunning view of the Moab Rim and La Sal Mountain landscape ever since. In the spring of 2016, CR replaced her trailer with an energy efficient home. CR was able to reuse many components such as materials for insulation, and reclaimed wood for trim. Sarah was a wonderful participant, and now, she is often paying only $8 per month for utilities, as that is the base fee for being hooked up to the grid.

 

Talk about affordable housing!

Zach Ahrens | Moab, Fall 2015

Zach built his home with Community Rebuilds in the Fall of 2015. Zach incorporated some beautiful natural elements into his home, like a juniper branch in his corner shelf, and a river rock bathroom floor. As a biologist with Moab Native Aquatics, these details reflect Zach's interest in nature and science. He loves his solar panels and almost never turns the heat.

Steve Langello | Moab, Spring 2014

Steve originally owned a trailer in the neighborhood where CR helped him build a new home. In 2005, the residents of the trailer park where Steve lived were told they could no longer live there. This situation actually sparked the initial vision for Community Rebuilds. Nine years later, it was exciting for both CR and Steve to be able to rebuild in the same location.
