Duggar brothers crush Jana's backyard construction dreams in a new Counting On sneak peek

John-David and Joe Duggar just proved they're ready to fulfill the grand tradition of Duggar men by pushing around their sister, Jana.

In a new clip for Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Jana comes to her brothers with a backyard project she was excited to bring to life, only to be steamrolled by John-David and Joe.

"I've been trying to come up with some ideas to just encourage the kids to get outside more and just have fun and play out there... Maybe a playhouse, a treehouse, some kind of a structure that they can just go and get their energy out — outside," Jana explains in an interview before bringing her proposition to her brothers.

She starts out confidently explaining her ideas to John-David and Joe, but as the conversation goes on and her brothers give her a thousand-mile uninterested stare, her voice trails off and her confidence dwindles. "So, yeah, I was thinking something to help the kids be outside a lot versus inside, when the spring and summer time come around," she says. "I was thinking, like, a tree fort or just a playhouse, or something to, just like, cope with that."

Instead of helping their sister run with her project, John-David and Joe belittle her and make it their own.

"Well, after talking with Jana, and she was kind of kicking around [that we could] do a small thing or something, Joe and I kind of were like, 'Man, we could really do something big,'" John-David says to the camera.

Rather than getting mad, it appears that Jana takes her disappointment in stride and chalks it up to boys being boys.

"I think they're kind of just thinking like, 'Wow, I can make my boyhood dreams come to life now,'" she says. "And so I think they're kind of supersizing this project."
