    I love the look of this, both inside and outside. It reminds me of my husbands grandma’s house from the early 1900’s. The older part of the house had shiplap walls. I hope you’ll show the interior once it is finished. Thanks so much for sharing.

      So glad you liked it Helen! I can’t wait to see it finished — Tiny House Talk Team

    Hope you show this again when it’s done. What are they going to do when someone opens their door thinking it’s a church and they want to worship there, or looking for the pastor to marry them? :)

      I agree – they did too good of a job making it look like a church; someone is going just show up there and think they can walk right in.

        From what I can tell on her blog, I think the house is on a large plot of private land. However, that is a valid concern! — Tiny House Talk Team

      Do you make a habit of walking into churches with no signage, assuming you share the same beliefs as the people inside?

      • Natalie Natalie November 1, 2016, 8:33 am

        You can walk into a church for the beauty and not necessarily the religion :) — Tiny House Talk Team

    Charming and clever. I,too, want to see the finished home.

    This is quite magical and the interior is shaping up nicely.

    Gorgeous!! I’m with the crowd on this one, and looking eagerly forward to seeing the completed project.

      I know! I can’t wait to see it all done — Tiny House Talk Team

    It’s beautiful. I hope they don’t plan to paint over all of the beautiful wood.

      I think they do… :( Made me so sad! — Tiny House Talk Team

    Some time after Hurricane Frances, I came across a abandoned church, made in what we call the Florida Cracker styling or construction… Although it had taken quit a bit of a beating from the hurricanes that had rolled thru our area of Florida during the earlier part of the 2000’s, it had seen many a year of hard times as well… It more than likely was abandoned in favor of a new church design and built for or thru it’s parish followers in what I suspect an area in which the land was not as valued as where this cracker styled church had stood… And reason to why it was torn down with haste…! But I am sure if I had made the overtures in order to have it relocated to another spot, I would not have met any opposition by the community as I could have made one beautiful house from it… It was not terribly large, but it would have had to been stepped in order to have had it moved or relocated to another lot some where… I am truly in love with the old Cracker Style house design and would love to come upon another some day as there are still pockets of them in some of the old parishes in the heartlands of Florida.. And with many still with families living within it’s walls and under some of the ones with the old tin roofs….! They are usually made of pecky cypress and or yellow southern pine, which make for great building material at the time of their construction.. They were called Cracker houses because it was said that you could hear the old Florida cattle crackers, cracking their whips thru it’s walls… Usually painted white and painted only once as at the time paint was a luxury in which most who lived in them could not afford to buy…! They were usually cooled thru open slats along the wall toe boards if were used, and brought up thru the open crawl space under them as most were built off the ground for reason of flooding and insect infestation… A really efficient design for it’s time… I have seen a few that were remodeled and updated with some of our more modern conveniences and one in particular which was also a church at one time, with post and beam interior construction to make use of it vast open interior as it was a tall church with large steeple giving it a loft in which was more like an extra floor than a loft… truly very pretty and wished that I had taken pictures of it, but it was on the fly that I had found it, and did not have a camera at the time….! Well any way great job on your build, and lots of luck and fond memories I hope for your future….!
