Somehow the imgur app failed in sending the descriptions I wrote or I just don't see them, so here goes :

I bought this 1864 Anglican church in a small community in Quebec about an hour north of Ottawa. I have the original 1864 bill of sales when the original land owner sold the lot to the Archbishop of Montreal for 1$.

The bottom will become my metal fabrication shop with a laundry/mechanical room in the back, the top floor will be my loft. I'll put in a few sun wells on the eastern roof slope and add a dormer to the western roof with a patio door opening up to my futur deck overlooking the village and the river.

I'll do an open concept loft with 8' walls separating only the bedroom & washroom from the rest of the 2nd floor.

Lots of stuff was left behind, like my soon to be refurbished GE wringer washer, also a very nice forced air wood burning furnace.

Stay tuned for updates, will post a lot of progress in /v/diy and finished projects here in /v/pics.

Edit : Sweet reception for my first Voat post, loving the chatter folks.

Edit 2 : to save my inbox from people with broken mouse scrollers, I got it dirt cheap, no dead people under or near, this is how I got it. Structure is beautiful and only need the usual repairs.

That sounds awesome. I've always wanted to get a small church like this and turn it into a home or a coffee spot.

Funny how things work out in life sometimes...

I've dreamed of a project like this for years, also I've always jokingly said that my dream home would be my fab shop (i'm a welder & machinist) with a loft on top.

I just double checked my buckect list !! Woohoo !

There is a coffee shop where I live that used to be an old church.

One day I hope to be honored with glory such as this. To own a Gold Goat would be the pinnacle of the parabola of my life.

A most delicious small country town price that would infuriate most people dreaming of a project like this. Low 5 figures ;)

Ah man! Friends of mine tried to buy a church in Southern Ontario....couldn't get a price below the mid 6 figures! They had to give up since the refurb cost wouldn't make sense.

Have up fun with your project!

That is just amazing, what a great find! Was it on the market for a while before you bought it?
