MHM teamed up with Scripps Network to build a Thanksgiving feast for the Third Annual CANstruction benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. The 3,800 cans, constructed over 3 hours at the Knoxville Convention Center, were carefully selected and even more carefully assembled creating a fireplace, table, and Thanksgiving feast back dropped by stars from some of Scripps most well-known shows. Our selection of canned food earned us the “Best Meal” award in our first year competing in the competition. Thank you MHM build team: John Thurman, Peter O’sickey, Shehara Hapuarachy, Megan Paris, Michael Turko, Steven Whitmore, Natalie Wright, & Haley Zimmerman.

“On a splendid July 11th evening, a sold-out crowd gathered at “The Concrete House” in West Hills for an light hearted evening of burgers and 1955 revelry as part of the Knox Heritage Summer Supper program.  The Concrete House was designed by MHM’s founder Bruce McCarty as an experimental house built entirely of concrete.  Located in one of Knoxville’s first suburbs, the house sat in a field and was opened up for the Parade of Homes.  Terrazzo floors, concrete frame structure, concrete plank and ballasted roof, and concrete block walls made for a very unique and sturdy modern home.  After being lived in for decades, it eventually fell into disrepair until Beth Boline purchased the house and restored it back to its original mid-century modern luster.  With MHM’s sponsorship, Beth and her partner Shannon opened up the house for the Knox Heritage event and helped highlight the need to include mid-century modern as an important historical era, especially a Bruce McCarty original.  MHM was proud to support the Summer Supper event as part of our year 50th anniversary celebration of the firm’s work and contribution to the community. The event was a great success and raised $5,000 for Knox Heritage.”
