Architecture Wednesday: Church!

What is it about a church turned into a private home that I love so much.

Well, it's the huge wide open spaces; the high ceilings; the beams;and those windows.

Plus it's the fact it's no longer a church, i guess.

i love this place because they turned it into a modern open plan space filled with light, and yet kept some of the original church spaces intact, albeit with glass floors and ceilings.

I love the fact that I could be baptized, if I so desired, in the tub in the master bath,

i love the let He Who Is Without Sin Cast The First Stone rock-climbing wall.

Add to that the fact that cooking lit by stained glass would be cool and I pray that one day I can get an old church and turn it into a home for a couple of queens.

Oh, that is just STUNNING! Although perhaps just a bit TOO much white for my tastes. However, that's a mere quibble. I've always fancied the idea of living in an old desanctified church myself. And I must say, the exterior of this one looks EXACTLY like the church I attended as a child, lol!

This is one of the best church conversions I have seen. The fireplace with wood stacks?!?!? I love it. And don't het me started on the kitchen and that exposed stone.

But will the place hold with my sinful mind of a ass?

After we graduated from college a beautiful old
church where we lived was converted into apartments.
I considered going back just to live in it!

Plenty of churches coming up for sale over here; I'll let you know if the church over the road goes up for sale (Anglo-Saxon roots)

Not a big fan of church conversions but I do love the fire place! Throw a log on.

OK. I for one would start going to church... but first I'd replace the furniture.
