Another Church...for sale!

Know you've been getting your fill of church closings. Here's something different.

Saw this at the corner of Main and Northrup on the way to UB School of Architecture and Planning this morning. Living in a church would be a total trip. I'll call Russell in the morning and see wasup...and maybe grab some interior pics!

David- I want to buy a church/firehouse/bank to renovate and live in-
I got some heat from a religious friend of mine, but im willing to take the risk.
Do you think it is an unreasonable task, to burdensome?

Anon:

you have the same dreams I do ;) Once deconsecrated its just another building. Much better to save it then just let it go abandoned and unpreserved.

In lower town Lockport there was a church for sale. Right across the street form the Erie Canal. Beautiful view and still walking distance to Main St. I was astonished to find out it went for 27K! I am kicking myself for not inquiring. It was the perfect size for a loft conversion. 150 years old I think. Its beautiful. I have a pic, but not on Flickr yet. It is at home.
