We have worked on job sites with a cat who liked to climb ladders even– all the way to the second story roof. It’s best to keep them out of the work zone, however, for their safety and ours! We are also billing you by the hour, and they are a super-cute distraction.
2. While their home is disrupted, it’s especially helpful to have favorite blankets, toys, and beds in a clean, quiet space. Think of a space that’s far removed from the area being renovated or perhaps use a white noise machine or radio to drown out some of the sounds.
3. Get kids excited about the project! You might even watch some of Bob the Builder and remind them that Rob the Builder is coming soon to work on their house. Can we fix it? Yes, we can!
