Modifying a sandwich bread recipe?

I've been making this recipe for sandwich bread consistently for the past couple weeks, and I really enjoy it, but I'm wondering if I can just switch out the butter for olive oil instead. I'm assuming the butter is to help keep the loaves soft?

Around 1.5% of total flour weight works fine for me.

Yes, shouldn't be a problem to replace the butter with an oil.
