Not so much can be said about his educational background as details about that aspect of his life are not very clear. If nothing, we know that he had his basic education (elementary and high school). However, we do not have access to information about his tertiary educational history or the course he studied. He most likely received his degree from an institution in the United States.

But looking at his career path (as a carpenter on Maine Cabin Masters), it is easy to assume that the 51-year-old never attended college. According to research, only 23% of carpenter graduates receive a bachelor’s degree, while 42% of them finish with a high school diploma.

Having premiered on January 2, 2017, Cabin Masters Maine is now in its ninth season. It was the top-rated program on the Magnolia Network for its first three seasons. Every episode starts off with Chase presenting Ashley and Ryan to a brand-new cabin—referred to as a camp in the neighborhood—and its proprietors. The cottages always need a lot of work and are always in terrible condition.

The renovation has a price range and a completion date. The Cabin Masters then make every effort to rehabilitate these buildings, maintaining their original purpose while occasionally including contemporary conveniences like solar panels and biodegradable toilets.

The Cabin Masters ceremoniously hand over the keys to the newly renovated cabin to its owners at the conclusion of the episode. Although Chase is the team leader, the group completes their assignment through a collaborative effort.

As the designer, Ashley selects paint hues and other aesthetic elements as well as finds items specific to Maine culture, such as tote bags made from recycled sails. For his part in the program as a carpenter, Matt Dix is well-recognized.

Matt Dix and his team have worked on several projects, including the renovation of Agassiz Village, the YMCA playground in Kennebec Valley cottage located in Augusta, and the Travis Mills Foundation. Together, they make an average of $30,000 per episode. Matt has appeared in over 120 episodes since the show began in 2017.

Before being married on September 22, 2001, the pair dated for several years. This means they have been married for slightly over two decades. In all their years together, there have been no public scandals involving them and they do their very best to stay away from undue attention.

Matt and Ginna Don’t Seem To Have Any Kids Yet

Two decades is a long time for a couple to stay together without children but that seems to be the lot of Matt Dix, and his wife, Ginna. The two are currently in their forties and do not to have children, and Matt has never talked about the reason for that. His naturally upbeat personality makes it difficult to tell whether it has been a source of worry for the family.
