Ever since we first moved into the treehouse we have been wanting to build some birdhouses to bring more birds to our yard. They are great for eating the bugs, which we have a plethora of around here. We decided this weekend was the perfect time to start some family wood working crafts. We also decided to put our own twist on the birdhouses and name them after each other– how could we forget Winston? Watch to see how we build our birdhouses and what we figured out during our wood working DIY craft project.
If you would like to send us, or little Emery something in the mail our PO box is below

Join us each week as we go through real life at the treehouse, from home renovations and projects to living everyday life with our first born baby girl. Life is always spontaneous, fun, and full of laughter because we enjoy each and every moment together. Our channel is all about the ups and downs of life, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Seem to recall reading somewhere that it is not a good idea to put perches on birdhouses because unwanted birds perch and kill the wanted birds inside. Something like that. Nonetheless, that looked like a fun afternoon project. Family is looking great. Don't forget about the snake, lol.
Cooking steak in the oven, option. Turn on the broiler! Wife likes her's medium well done. I like mine med rare. No searing needed! 1.5" steak. Start her's 6 minutes, add yours 3 minutes. Turn her's. 2 minutes, turn yours. 5 minutes later pull them both off and let them rest for 5 minutes. Enjoy the flameing taste!
When it's -24 degrees outside and you want a flame chared steak, this will get it done! Gas or electric oven. Enjoy!
Sure there are some more knowledgeable bird enthusiasts out there. If you put the roof on last and put it on small stainless steel hinges with a small hook you can clean them out when the birds migrate. They will last a lot longer and be more inviting to the birds when they return. The entry gaps on the square ones will be easy peasy, its the round holes that are tough to clean. They look good man!

IN your 20’s you do projects with your friends. In your 30’s you do them with your family. In your 40’s you outsource them to an expert. In your 50’s you don’t have any projects left. In your 60’s you give your crappy old projects to your adult children.
Tool belt game is strong sir!!!!! When you start really loading it up with tools and measuring devices......add some manly suspenders. It moves the weight to your shoulders. Love the Swiss design vibe.....maybe add some French Colonial and Greek revival as well:P Great video! Little one is a champ......good on you to acclimate her to loud noises!!!!! You guys are doing great!
As birder so tips, They don't always use the house, they mostly use them in the spring for nesting. If you want some great birds, make some feeders, some hanging ones, some suet feeders, and some bird baths. Remember to make the squirrel proof.
Very nice video, I really enjoy them. Great entertainment also. Show building an Owl house or two. Build a bird feeder & bath for them also. Like watching you do projects, fishing & hunting, & enjoying the outdoors. Keep going strong Justin & family. Thanks much.
Your bird houses are great but the reason there's a small hole in the front so squirrels and other bigger Birds can't get into the bird house after the bird that lives there babies that's the reason they put small holes in the front the only the bird that lives there can get in because squirrels will kill the babies not to mention other bigger Birds just a thought other than that your bird houses are beautiful take care God bless
Congratulations on your continued health LFG and your precious baby girl. I know ya’ll want only the very best and Emery’s safety is top priority. Baby wearing can be a little tricky at first OSG. Joan and John YouTube channel called my favorite ways to babywear. She was taught an acronym used in baby wearing that is super useful and will help you keep your precious baby girl safe. I stumbled on LFG’s channel then noticed he had survived health struggles and ya’ll we’re pregnant about 2 weeks before you had Emery. I’ve watched and watched invested probably close to a solid day (24 hours) watching. Love what ya’ll are about. Again congratulations and prayers for continued health LFG. I too suffer serious health issues one is a condition that resembles a brain tumor called benign intracranial hypertension or idiopathic intracranial hypertension OR the old school name is Pseudotumor Cerebri. Yes, one condition has three names. I’ve been diagnosed since before most doctors knew what it was and had to school my doctors on my condition. Currently I in a place where my condition is controlled. Praise God!!! Lots of love <3
I have had squirrels come and chew up my bird houses countless times and I would hate to see the same thing happen to you. The best thing that would work is to just take I couple pieces of sheet metal and place on the tree above and below the bird house. Also a name for Emmies bird house is Emmies emporium!!
