How Does THAT Work?: ToolBelt Edition

Today I am BACK with a SPECIAL edition of How Does THAT Work?!? Because this is the TOOLBELT edition!
I will EXPLAIN what happens when WATER drips from your CEILING! First they cut a HOLE in your ceiling. Then LOUD and BAD fans blow DAY and NIGHT for a very LONG time until everything is DRIED up.
Then MEN come into your HOUSE and RIP your SHOWER all APART! This causes lots of NOISE, too. Since there is LOTS of DUST and DIRT, you will have a PLASTIC CURTAIN dividing that room from the REST of your house. You are NOT SUPPOSED to sneak in through the CURTAIN.
After all the MESS is removed, if there is MORE WATER, then a CARPENTER comes to replace the FLOOR!
Then stuff starts getting put back TOGETHER. But you still cannot USE the shower. This is about THREE weeks later. Once they pour CEMENT over this, you are also NOT SUPPOSED to stick your paw in it. Ooopsie.
I PICKED the very BEST tiles I could to MATCH the EXISTING tiles.
And FINALLY, the shower is FIXED back UP! Come on INSIDE Daisy, I will SHOW you around!

"Lois Grebowski" said...

I've been there, done that Harley. It's no fun... And yes, it's a lot of work. I'm glad y'all found some tiles that worked with the existing stuff.

one of Fae's humans said...

thanks for the info, Harley! i actually didn't know that. :)

glad that the shower is back and (hopefully) better than ever!

Link Bartholomew said...

Harley, you are such a MAN. I don' think I would've known how to fix the shower problem, but you sure did! I bet all the lady cats flock to you, dude.

Lin said...

Oooh, they did a nice job--but what a MESS! Not to mention how loud and expensive I'm sure it all was. I can see that Daisy is sorta skerred going near that snappy new shower--it must have been a very long 3 weeks.

I think I'm gonna marry Bob Villa next time 'round. Your mom is lucky to have you, Harley, and your toolbelt!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank goodness you were on hand to direct the builders Harley - what would your mommy and daddy have done without you. We bet Daisy was very impressed with the new shower that you installed.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Marg said...

WEll it was lots of bad stuff while they were fixing the shower, but it sure looks nice all finished. Bet Mommeh and Daddeh are enjoying that shower.Take care.

Simba said...

Wow! You would think it would be easy to fix a little water dripping!

Looks very nice now that it is all finished.

Ivy said...

Thanks for explaining that Harley! Do you wish you had seen ceiling cat in the hole in your ceiling?

Raymond and Busby said...

Wow, that was quite a process. We hope the new shower never ever leaks!

Cat said...

Wow, what an ordeal, but your shower looks great!!!

Cara n Crew said...

Thanks for the How-To, Harley. The new shower looks very nice. You do good work! We had water leak from the outside, through our roof and attic and ruin our ceiling. Do you know how to fix that? Maybe you could help our mom...'k...thx!

Grace said...

Now that I know how that works I shall think twice before having a new shower put in. Yours is really nice tho...

Yoggi said...

That was unfair that you could not sneak in under the curtain to look how they worked. And why not a cat paw in the cement? It could have been your walk of fame. :)

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Hooray it's done!
Our daddy ripped out the basement bathroom down to the studs because it was nasty and our new one is just about done too. He is ready to do the cement under the shower pan next.
But its not an inconvenience to anybody because its a bathroom no one really uses.

We invite you to sign up for the Fourth Annual Christmas in July Gift Exchange! Deadline is June 12.

You did a very good job on that stuff Harley! Our new bathroom looks a little like that (but it did not start out with water leaking)

Pricilla said...

I am sure your mommeh and daddeh are VERY happy that you have fixed the shower.

Sparkle said...

That sounds like some ordeal, Harley! Especially the parts where you are not supposed to sneak through the curtain and put your paw in the cement!

The Whiskeratti said...

Wow, does that look painful - and expensive for your 'rents.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Aaaaagh, Blogger is being a butt head again! We just ran when water dripped from out ceiling! We hid when mom started saying bad words and climbed up into da attic and sed even more bad words...

That is a rough situation. We opt for "install a new birdfeeder" instead.
