Tin Roof

Craftsman Nick Kenny converted a run-down Victorian corrugated-iron chapel in Faversham, on the Kent coast of England, into a home. Using only recycled and salvaged materials, Nick had to be extremely resourceful – especially in the bathroom, where it was eventually fitted with a reclaimed sink and a shower made from old boiler room parts. One of my favorite things about a project like this is that it can never be re-created as it’s completely unique to its space.

    I love the kitchen cabinets! Tea pots are my favorite. Also, the spiral staircase and quote above the bed are just lovely. One day I hope to have a great house like that!

    How beautiful! Those windows are so gorgeous, and I love the way he left it really simple inside. My parents lived in a renovated church in Old Mystic, CT when I was born and then bought another one in Maine when I was in college. The high ceilings and lots of natural light make it much cozier than one might imagine. Thanks for sharing!

    Amazing and charming. It has to be so much work to find everything for a place like this but it is worth it!!
    The windows, kitchen cabinets, the mismatched stuff, the pipe shower. Did you see the first aid kit?

    This post is great — it reminds me a lot of the many church-to-loft conversions taking place in Toronto now. Although this seems more rustic.
