    I was going to skip this one, but something told me to go back and look.

    I don’t know when exactly the conversion took place ‘years ago,’ but this is one conversion where it really does look like a home with a church-like feel, and not a home shoehorned into a church. I can see how this home could be made into a gorgeous little place with some paint, new carpet, and the right touch.

      I know what you mean—it’s very homey, outside and in! I’d want to redo the bathroom and kitchen, and I’d be very interested to see what’s under the carpet.

    A number of those interior design choices, as flashy as they are to modern eyes, would have been particularly racy in Minden, NE at the time they were installed. I mean, that’s pretty racy for small town Nebraska now, let alone 40+ years ago.

    Will need a few dumpsters to get this one back on track

    I’ve never seen such an “old” church conversion before; I thought it was rather a recent concept. It seems thoughtfully done.

    As a carpenter who loves cooking, the kitchen I would build for this house… I’d go downright, whole-hog ecclesiastical. Instead of an island, I would have an altar.

    The conversion has indeed been very well done, insofar as it feels like a proper home. I don’t love the brick the fireplace is made of, but the Roman arch opening is terrific, and it’s very well massed/proportioned for the space. The stained glass window in the entryway is a legitimately great piece of glass art–gothic as interpreted via mid century modern. If the stair treads weren’t mid century cantilevers, I might have been persuaded that the stairs, loft and railings were original to the church. The pressed tin is sensational and needs to be better highlighted–better lighting on every surface and great quality white paint. I think the lavender carpet is vile, but I dig the green shag–if it’s salvageable, I might have it cut and edged to use as rugs instead of full wall to wall. And please, lord, some source of natural lighting in those bathrooms. They need light and air.

      Good point about light and air in the bathrooms. But I wouldn’t want to keep any of the carpeting (even the light purple, which is a color I like).
