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.

Stairs Finally Done!

Johnsonite Landing Tile in Sea Breeze with Bamboo Pattern

In an earlier post I blogged about the delivery of our Johnsonite stair treads, and were pretty excited about them being installed.  It was quite a let down when we got back from work to learn that only a few of the stairs had been done due to a mix up in shipment.   We waited five long weeks for the stair treads to be manufactured and shipped, and were not looking forward to another five weeks of waiting. 

Morgan wondering if the stairs would ever be covered!

Halfway there

Fortunately, Johnsonite expedited the manufacture and shipment of the remaining stair treads.  They were dropped off by the installers last Monday, and allowed to acclimate to the house for a few days.  The installer came by last week and covered the remaining stairs.   They came out quite nice, and they certainly have the dogs' seal of approval! 

Finally done!
