I love historic architecture and finding ways to convert former commercial buildings. Old firehouses, churches, factories – I would live in any one of them. I have a strong curiousity for the history behind old buildings.
Living in a former church is much different than living in another commercial building. I know that some may feel a little superstitious because religious proceedings were practiced in the building. I actually know of a couple that converted a Methodist church into their family home. She said that she feels a strong energy when she enters the home – a positive, happy energy. She thinks weddings and other happy moments account for the positive energy of the home.
I would get over the eerie feeling for the trade of arched windows, high ceilings, stained glass, and hardwood floors. Could you live in a converted church?

I would live in this church! Very dramatic spaces.
