I'm considering changing the name of this blog to "WasherLuv." Second trip to Home Depot to get more. But the repair plan seems to be working.
Starting to add the adhesive sealer tape.
This stuff is used to repair roofs and the adhesive grows stickier in the heat. That's all good, of course, but ya gotta work quickly.
It ain't pretty, by any means, but getting it back together is the priority right now.
Figuring out how to cover the horizontal seam. Tom has drafted our young man to help (now that he's awakened at noon from his summertime slumber. Remember those lazy summer days? Yeah, me neither.)
First cross-seam seal in place. Unfortunately, we ran out of the sticky-seal stuff and will have to revisit this part of the repair when it arrives. Luckily, it should only take 2 days.
We've decided it's time to tackle and conquer the claustrophobia by turning the bed so that it'll be straight-on rather than sideways. That means building an extension onto the bed platform. And, while we're at it, why don't we just refinish all the cabinets and paint the interior?
When I get ideas like these, Tom often talks me down from the ledge. But this time he did not. I think we may both be crazy from the heat. More to come.
