I need this place soooo bad.

I'm thinking a "writers' sanctuary" is in order. (Sanctuary...get it??) Imagine: A library-esque scene with big wooden desks and tiffany table lamps. A few comfy couches and arm chairs. A coffee bar in the corner. You would all be invited, of course.

Now, I just need to win the lottery.

Oh wow! It's a deconsecrated church! I've always wanted to live in a deconsecrated church.

It's my dream home too... shame it's a little out of my price range.

If you buy it, I will do my best to come visit you.

So I'm not the only post-religious person who wants to own a church! Interesting...

I'm close; I'll buy it! (Gimme yer credit card!)

In other news, I showed Designer #1 (aka my mother), this one. Her response? "Sure hate to furnish that puppy."

"Puppy" being high-end designer-speak and all. *g*

I'm not sure we could afford to furnish it. Most likely we'd be in there with some nice bookcases, some old futons, and a lot of boxes.

But the organ music would be, er, divine. /straight face

You know what Frank Lloyd Wright used to say: "I can do very well without the necessities of life as long as I have the luxuries."

Furnish that glorious open space? But then where would all the dancers go?

I'm not sure what this is a sign of, but I looked at the photo, and before going on to the text immediately thought to myself, "slants to the right... Waitasec -- is this San Francisco?"

I also want a deconsecrated church. There's on right near my job that has "for rent" signs out, and I expect they would sell it if they got a good offer, but it's not a very interesting church. Mostly just a box with a peaked roof and long, narrow windows.

As for this one, I'm sure we could find ten friends or so to chip in. That's only a million bucks each, right?

Actually, I'm beginning a home search, and the market here is wacky. I can't find a house that's small enough, really. I want a freestanding house, not a row house. There are some cute brick bungalows, but they are, imo, overpriced.

Whereas I can find a gigando old house for about the same money. I'm leaning in that direction (though the prospect of heating such a beast scares me), because then I could run writing workshops and retreats at my house.

I just walked through a home with my dream floorplan in Turlock today. 2500 sq ft. $300K. If only I had a job that actually paid money.

As for the church, no, no. Do not furnish beyond a couple of desks and cozy chairs for the library. The sanctuary part is a dance/concert hall.

Oh, 8 mil... Where can I find thee?
