Day 114: Living in a Church/Synagogue

by MJ Gourd


Day 114 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!

Today is Sunday and it happens to be "National Back to Church Sunday"!  I was raised Catholic and have attended mass in many beautiful churches and cathedrals across North America.  I have always admired the architecture and appointments.  The stained glass in the old cathedrals is beautiful  So this got me thinking...What would it be like to live in a church or a synagogue?  Here is a peak inside several...lovely....

Fancy living in this old church!

I love the kitchen.  But no upper cabinets!  I guess when lots of space is available, you don't need them!

Beautiful space.  Love all the detail, but set up as a studio.  Might get noisy.
