I have been a bad girl. I haven’t posted on my blog in weeks and the last post I did was on Hitler. I swore out loud at another driver yesterday and have eaten way too many cheeseburgers lately. House Crazy Sarah needs to do some penance. So let’s go to church.

A church converted to a house!

Welcome to Our Lady of Snows Church in Dublin, New Hampshire.

The historic 1904 church was designed by famed architect Frank A. Bourne. It was extensively remodeled in recent years to be used as a personal residence but particular care was taken to preserve its historic features.

You can see how many of the original features were preserved and utilized after renovation, including the original stained glass windows and much of the woodwork.

The furnishings in these photos are unarguably bland and worn, but think how much fun it would be to decorate this place if you owned it!

The kitchen cabinetry is all custom made from native oak trees.

The stairs that used to lead to the choral loft now lead to the upper level bedroom.

Only one bedroom is pictured here, but there are 2 more in the garden level basement.

I am just itching to get in there and decorate!

This handsome Gothic Revival style church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The church-turned-house is located just outside the quaint village of Dublin in south central New Hampshire.

Occasionally I get requests from house hunters looking for old churches that they could turn into a home.

Well here you go! This one is already done for you! All you have to do is move in and make it your own.
