Meet Kit Smith
In 2005 I started building guitars and ukuleles in Berkeley, California. Mostly, I would create unusual instruments configured with various vintage and repurposed parts. Since moving to the desert in 2017 I have focused on building cigar box ukuleles and electric guitars with desert symbolism and patina. My goal is always great design, tone and feel. -Kit Smith Desert Homestead Guitars

Meet Tanya Livingstone
Hi...my name is Tanya Livingstone. I moved out here to the hi-desert 3 1/2 years ago with my husband, Kit. We made the move from Orange County and Berkeley (2 households...that’s a long story). We decided to make a home for ourselves here and have spent our time fixing up our little homestead and raising chickens since our human children have flown the coop. In between my work trips I needed to find a hobby to help fill my need to be creative and decided to try a crochet blanket. I really liked it...the tactile feel, the instant results...( I also like ironing and mowing the lawn for the same reason). I decided to keep crocheting different types of projects and I basically have not stopped in the past 2 years! Kit and I have loved becoming a part of the hi-desert community and meeting new creative friends!!
