FeatherING the Nest – One Room at a Time

Birdz of a Feather (BOF) is the nesting place that brings together DIY home and garden renos, crafts and gluten free recipes.

I feel like we’ve come a long way since my husband first raised his eyebrows when I roped him into helping me replace all the ‘perfectly good’ door knobs in my house soon after we met. The gentleman doth protest too much, methinks! It wasn’t until he agreed to help me install a little pond beside the front walkway that I realized he was a DIY wannabe. Little did he know what I had in store for him after we wed! We’ve been ‘feathering the nest… one room at a time’ ever since.

While I love documenting our projects and sharing tutorials with our readers, my proudest accomplishment is converting Hubs from a reno virgin into a true ‘partner in grime’!

Some of Our Projects

Sustainability is an important focus for us. If we can encourage just a few of you to do a double-take next time you pass a curbside find, we’ve done our job. After all, good planets are hard to find! While you’re here, check out our Craft Rehab category. Are you ready to get your craft mojo on? Craft Rehab builds on our sustainable approach and is where you’ll find fun and fresh craft ideas. Trying just a few our projects will have you living a more green life before you know it. It’s just like sneaking vegetables into lasagne. The dish is so delicious, you don’t even realize how good it actually is for you 🙂

Speaking of delicious dishes (did you like that segue?), the newest addition to the Birdz of a Feather family is our recipe category, ‘The Unknown Chef‘, inspired by Hubs. Although he may have been thwarted from becoming a well-known chef (does anybody really trust a skinny chef?), the blog at least provides an outlet to help prove the naysayers wrong!

Flock to us on Pinterest, our Youtube channel, Instagram and on Facebook.

We hope our projects inspire to feather your own nest…. one room at a time!

Engineered Hardwood Floor: Basement Installation

If you are considering installing real hardwood in a basement, an engineered hardwood floor should be your only consideration – in conjunction with a dimpled membrane! The membrane will help protect the floor from vapour migration coming up from the concrete slab. It will also protect from minor leaks – as we found out when one of our pipes burst a year after this install! Continue reading
