On April 15, 2008 we closed on a 1955 Mid-Century Modern home in Merriam, KS that was custom designed by the late Donald R. Hollis of Hollis + Miller Architects. We will be sharing our journey as we update the house to make it our own, while trying to stay as close to the original design as possible.

Bathroom Trouble!

I spent the weekend priming and painting our half bathroom downstairs.  I figure it would be nice to have a second bathroom before our friends come over next weekend.  The toilet rough in did not have a flange, and it took a couple of trips to Home Depot before we purchased the right one.  We were not able to install it however, because we need a hammer drill to secure the flange to the cement floor.  Our old craftsman drill just did not have enough umph!  That was the least of our troubles though.  

It turned out that the dual flush water saving toilet we purchased at Sams Club a few months ago is not going to work out for the space.  It requires a 12 inch rough in, and we only have a 10" rough in.  Unless we can find the time to run into Home Depot or Lowes this week (assuming they have a toilet that works for a 10" rough in), it looks like we might have to share one bathroom.  Oh well, it is not much different than what we had to do in our 1 bathroom home.

I am blogging from the local Panera (thank God for free wi-fi), given tha our AT&T DSL is down again!!!  I am seriously going to consider switching to Surewest.  I am sick and tired of AT&T's customer service (or lack thereof).
