Tabulous Transformation: Church Home

May 19, 2015

By Tab Byrum

Last August I did a post on old schools that had been saved and converted into private homes and in some cases apartments and condos, that post was the first one I did that was REALLY popular online, so I thought today I would take a look at another building conversion, churches to private homes.

I think churches have some of the most amazing architecture, whether it’s a European cathedral or a country church in rural America, they usually have beautiful vaulted ceilings, wonderfully shaped windows, beautiful wood, stone or tile floors and are very open. Most churches are plumbed for kitchens and bathrooms, by adding furniture to define spaces and home decor you have a beautiful and architecturally relevant home. In several major cities around the world old churches are being saved and repurposed as office buildings, restaurants and stores as well as single and multiple family dwellings. Join me today as we take a look at these church conversions and let me know what you think. Enjoy!!!
