why would you want your house to be an old church? totally creepy. i mean, unless it was the church-cum-library in Venice in the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie. :) i've lived in 3 places now with high ceilings and too much open space. i just don't like it at all! besides, aren't cathedrals/churches designed in order to allow a carrying of voices from the guy at the front to the back?! yeah. this just doesn't make sense to me.

OMG OMG! Turn a church into a house! This is best idea I've ever heard! I'm so going to do that when I'm rich. This is seriously like, my new goal in life.

Open space is one thing. Wasted space is another.

I like high ceilings, but that room looks less like a home and more like an modern cathedral people put furniture in. I like the style of the furniture, I just think the ceiling is a little too high., The floor is very shiny though. Nice.

It is a pretty room but I don't think I could live there. Too much open space. Is there a word for the opposite of claustrophobic?

That's very beautiful, but it'd be a little awkward to live there in person. Overall, though, I love high ceilings.

It's absolutely beautiful to look at, so much so that my first instinct was to comment that "I would hate to live there!" But really, it manages to looks lovely, serene and peaceful. The white walls are lovely, not spartan. The longer I look at this picture, the more I long to be there! Dorm life looks worse and worse...

I love high ceilings and that building, but I personally would not be able to live in an old church!

I dislike them except in converted school and churches. I wonder what cooling and heating is like.

Although it is beautiful, I would not want to live in this particular space. It feels too cold to me... reminds me of church camp or something.

I love high ceilings. Most cathedral-style ceilings are no where near that beautiful. If you can take a picture of the top of it whilst standing anywhere in the room (unless you live in a church), it is too short, IMO. Our townhouse is vaulted, and it has separate central air to control the temp up there.

I used to sit in church when I was little (I'm a recovering Catholic) and dream about how I could turn it into my house. This is AWESOME!

I could never live in a church. It would bother me personally. They are converting a lot of churches in my area into condos and offices.

Oh man, can we say dust bunnies?! And although it looks pretty, that's just not the kind of room I want to curl up in on a cold winter day. It's not cozy.

Wow. I've always imagined living in a converted church.

Would be amazing to host a party in a space like that.
