    Home Is Where the Former Church (or Firehouse) Is
    Published today at 12:16 p.m. Developers have never shied away from turning the remnants of Chicago's past into residences-see the omnipresent warehouse-turned-loft projects across the city. Conversion treatments are now being found where they are less expected: A former Jewish orphanage in Wicker Park is now a single-family home.

  • To those creeped out about living in a former church, it might help to know that the church is deconsecrated before being converted to secular use. You are not treading on consecrated ground, lol. And indeed, the unique architecture is a huge draw. I'd love to score such a place!

    Not everyone is Christian.
    Not everyone is religious.
    Not everyone believes in the same nonsensical rules.

    Living in a former church is for those people.
