I am fascinated by architecture with interior design, and those pics are amazing together with those on the website.

I've seen a couple of churches made into private homes and they're beautiful. One in Boston was made into a small apartment complex with the bell tower six stories high made into one of the apartments.

Our National Bank back home used to be a theater during the roaring twenties, so it had all this ornate scroll work and high ceilings.
I had no idea there were so many ex churches being utilized, thanks, Kiz.

The Sacred Heart Cathedral in Augusta, GA was slated for destruction over 20 yrs ago. It was saved and converted to a cultural center. It is a beautiful building inside and out. A friend of mine got married there. Check out the photo gallery

one old church around here was converted into a strip club. Thankfully they left and sold it to another church. I think turning into a house is cool, turning it into a strip club, not so much.

Turning buildings into churches doesn't seem to happen much.
