Interesting piece on the large number of abandoned churches being converted into luxury condos -- eye of the needle I guess.

When Colin Bodell moved into a new 3,000-square-foot condo in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood in August, he was looking forward to living with its 30-foot ceilings, polished-marble floors and 20-foot-tall stained-glass windows. One thing he didn't anticipate, however, was people knocking on his front door to ask what time services were or to speak to the pastor.

They did mention that heating costs can be high which would be a big negative for me. I liked the idea of it, and the look of what they showed, but the high ceilings and large "grandiose" living spaces would be a bear to keep warm. Power bills would be astronomical.

Intercst, are you wishing you'd made a different choice?

I've seen some old, small Tx country churches and tabernacles re-invented for other uses - hay barns, equipment sheds, etc.
