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.

After a 14 hour trek our oven is here!!!!

We have been without an oven for more than 4 months. Well it would only work when it felt like it, which happened to be once or twice a month. But we were looking for the right one to come along at the perfect price.

Well, after waiting for a perfect deal on an Electrolux wall oven, our patience has paid off!! We got one for a steal at the Sears Outlet. I love that place-ahhhh. But here's the catch-we had to drive 14 hours roundtrip to get it. We figured since we went to Ikea for the same distance why not do the same thing for our dream oven.  I wanted my oven, and I was not about to give up, especially with a sweet deal like that.  

We checked the weather for the weekend and decided that Friday would be the best time to go.  We left for Evansville mid-morning on Friday and ran into a blizzard from Columbia to St. Louis (okay it was just some light snow and flurries).

After checking into the hotel and eating dinner, we headed to Sears to pick up the oven.  Turned out the oven was brand new, it only had a little crack in the fascia on the right side.  At 70% off the original price, it was well worth it!!

After getting some rest, we headed back home this morning.  Katy was quite comfortable, however, and was not ready to get up.  Morgan on the other hand, was ready to go!  Can you tell that Katy is not a morning dog?

I plan on working on the cabinet adjustments tomorrow, and hoping to have the oven installed just in time for Christmas.
