The Channel

Good Simple Living

Real Name(s)

Jeremy Souza (age 38) who is of Mauri descent.

Melissa Souza (age 35) who is of Mexican descent.

They are the most loving homesteading couple on YouTube. I always come away feeling joy after watching one of their videos!

They also have 4 children – 2 boys and 2 girls.

The Cabin

They have lived in a tent, tiny home, RV and cabin.

They recently built a cabin in the mountains:

Well, it’s certainly one of the biggest cabins I’ve ever come across. 🙂

It took a total of 2 years to build, with Jeremy and Melissa doing most of the work themselves.


They are planning some additional things for their mountain home. These include:

➜ A garage and workshop

➜ A new chicken pen

Numerous kitchen appliances will also come.


They live in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, although I don’t have their exact road address.


Like many homesteaders, they were not keen on raising their children in the city and chose country life and self-sustainability.

In fact, the kids have only been to the city once and have only been on two flights.

Along the way, this channel inspired so many of us to live the unconventional life.

Net Worth

YouTube homesteaders can be wealthier than we think.

As of 2024, it’s my best estimate that Good Simple Living has a net worth of $2,700,000 USD.

This is based on the value of their homestead, trucks, machinery and online business. They also hold a small stock portfolio.

That certainly helps them live the mountain lifestyle.


It’s also surprising how much their channel makes.

Good Simple Living makes $13,500 per month on their channel.

To do this, they simply:

➜ Add Amazon affiliate links in their video description

➜ Run YouTube ads on most of their videos

➜ Generate sales of their official merchandise

➜ Accept the occasional brand sponsorship

So it’s clear that they’re treating their YouTube channel like a business.


I have seen them featured on numerous other channels.

Big Moments

Apart from building an epic mountain home (which many consider the video to be a historical masterpiece), they have:

Raised $80k for Pediatric Cancer

Have Surprised Random Strangers with a Years Worth of Groceries

Bears Putting Their Family’s SAFETY at Risk

They are a heart-driven family that has brought so much joy. Many of us feel as though they’re our best friends, yet many of us will never meet them.

Future Plans

They have zero plans to cash out and move anywhere. Despite being millionaires, they’ll live in the mountains for years to come and eventually pass the home down to their children.


They have no secrets that I know of. After all, they have generated no controversy or generated much gossip online.
