The Raney family is a close bunch. And while much of their closeness can be attributed to the way of life they chose, it is also down to each individual. Led by the homestead expert Marty Raney, the family lives in the far-off land in Alaska. Misty is one of two children of Marty who followed him into the homestead business. A farmer, homestead builder, and Carpenter by trade, Misty loves the creative process behind the building. While she is also equally in love with swinging a hammer, she enjoys building things from small resources.
Misty Raney was born on the 9th of November 1979, in Sitka, Alaska, U.S. The third born of Marty Raney and Mollee Roestel, Misty spent much of her early life in Alaska. As a young kid, Misty loved art and craft and was into carpeting. She had her father and siblings to look up to and would often follow them around. As a result, Misty became someone who could build almost everything that was required for a homestead.
Shaped by Alaska:
As someone who has spent almost all her life in Alaska, Misty is grateful for the adverse conditions. She believes that it is these conditions that shaped her creativity, will, and determination. Misty shares her father’s determination and skills when it comes to building homesteads. When asked about her experience in Alaska, Misty shared;
“I love to swing a hammer and to construct things from a few simple materials. It’s weird, but I do. Anything to do with the building, gardening, livestock, hunting, accessing water, and more, my family thrives in helping others get a handle on their own situation. Alaska keeps us tough”.
Craftmanship runs in the Raney household, and the siblings, Misty and her younger brother Matt Raney are carrying the family torch. While not much is known about her older brother Miles, her older sister Melanee Raney runs raft & canoe adventures during summers. Misty works as a master carpenter in the family-owned “Alaska Stone and Log.” Spearheaded by patriarch Marty Raney, the business has been ongoing ever since she was a child. And the youngest Matt plays a big part in their building projects.
Reality television star, Misty Raney is a married woman. She is married to Maciah Bilodeau. The pair has a home in Hawaii and Alaska. They own an 800-square-foot cabin in Hatcher Pass, Alaska. They built the homestead from the ground up, even though they had significant help from the family. Misty and her husband spend most of their time in Alaska and come winter, they usually spend in the warm weather of Hawaii. As a result, the pair are constantly traveling between the two states.
In an age where most relationships are fragile, the Bilodeau couple knows the secret to a long-lasting marriage, at least it seems for now. Misty and her husband Maciah have been together since 2000, which makes 22 years of relationship. The pair took their time before giving birth to their first child. Their firstborn and only child is a son, Gauge Raney. Gauge was born on April 14, 2011.
