ETTC; Church Conversion

This was a lovely Church conversion on the show. It’s a little bit more modern country style, but I still really like it (I’m a traditional at heart).

Church conversions always make me a little sad as they’re such a testimony no longer to God, but our moving away from Him. Despite the fact that I’m Catholic I’d still love to live in one of these old Protestant churches. All the prayer over the centuries, to be connected to that each must be truly awesome.

Some of the features I particularly liked was this living room on the first floor, with a woodburner and mezzanine level.
