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.

Some Loose Ends and A New Addition

Loose End #1: The Toilet!
Well it turned out to be even more complex than we thought! But our toilet is on the way!!! The only characteristic we couldn't get was chair height, and we made some compromises.

Loose End #2: Shower Glass Panel
We have ordered a clear 3 X 6 glass panel for the shower, and it gets installed on Sept. 6th. We can't wait. Right now we are temporarily using a shower curtain.  The photo below is not our shower, but it gives you an idea of what the panel will look like.

Loose End #3: Tile Backsplash
We even selected a backsplash for the concrete trough sink, and ordered it. That should be easy to install. Once it's installed, we can actually use the sink and our faucets.

It feels nice to accomplish some things!

Hall Bathroom
We bought the tile for the floor. It's called Shore Playela, and it has a nice feel too.

We will have to rent another dumpster and start tearing down the hall bathroom this weekend. We will not be able to completely tear it down because we need to use the shower while the silicone in the master shower cures. However, our goal for the hall bathroom is October 30th! I will keep my fingers crossed.

New Addition
Well Delia finally got the chair she wanted, a Herman Miller fiberglass shell rocker.  She found it on Craigslist in Columbia!  Talk about perfect.  And we love the color.  It's the navy blue possibly made around 1962.  She also bought 2 eiffel tower legs for her side chairs from the seller.  Did I say this couldn't be more perfect?  Now, where to put it?
