Located in Chicago's hip Logan Square neighborhood, this home was originally built as a church in 1890. The current owners, Jim and Mollie, have lived here for one year and have maintained the integrity of the building's original architecture while giving a modern face to certain areas like the kitchen and bathroom. The fact that the house was originally a church is not only obvious from the architecture, stained glass, and the religious ceiling mural, but is cleverly shown throughout the house in the couple's choice of decor. Ranging from kitschy (figurines of nuns playing baseball) to goth (skulls and skeletons), the home playfully tips its hat to the original use of the building. Likewise, many pieces from the church have been salvaged, including the headboard, which used to be part of the church's alter.
