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.

Weekend Fun

In celebration of Spring and the 2nd Anniversary (April 15th-Tax Day) of our house, we had a Spring get together this weekend.  We set up our new hammock on Saturday morning, and the kids had a blast breaking it in.

After picking up after the party this morning, we headed out to Home Depot and ordered the stone for our backsplash.

We are going with a 1 x 3 Grecian white marble.  We were planning on using the marble in the shower, but then we saw some tile that had the look of concrete which we are seriously considering.

After our Home Depot fix, LD talked me into going to the River Market.  We had a good time looking at all the interesting items up for sale.  I was very glad that I was able to talk LD out of this chair with its barrelesque curves and stumpy legs.

She returned the favor, and talked me out of the polar bear baby painting.

I can't believe she didn't like it.  Just look at that adorable face!

We bought a little table that caught my eye.  It looks really nice as a bed side table.

I went back to Home Depot for the second time today to pick up some mulch and potting soil.  Came back to find that LD put some holes in the master bathroom.  Well, there's no turning back now!
