When our kids were younger our friends lived in a renovated church - it was cool, wide living areas, huge high ceilings and the kids loved it- what was also good was when the grandparents asked the kids what they had been doing they proudly told them that we had been to the church (tick tick). Pinteresting the other day I came across this cool church reno - I grew up living in a rectory, my dad is an man of the cloth so perhaps there is some sort of strange pull towards church renos and especially this one given it was Anglican church I grew up in. Let's hope the heating is good as my memories are of a freezing cold church in winter!!
