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.

Half bath is half done, and pendant lights are finally hung!

Our 10" rough in toilet came in last Monday, we picked it up on Tuesday, and installed it on Saturday.  We now need to install the sink.  LD thinks it will be easy, but nothing around here is ever easy.  Wish us luck! 

We finally decided on the pendant light shades, and got them hung this weekend. 

On Sunday we decided to go to Columbia so that LD could give Katy some rubble time.  We got to meet Kathleen's new German Shepherd, and got invited to dinner by our friend Sherril.  Her roast was delicious! 


  1. Your pendant lights looks great. I've just bought a similar one from Ballard Designs.
