Flickr user fyngyrz lives in a 1940's era church converted into a house. He is in the process of making the big, empty box into functional spaces for his family.
Check out the bedroom loft (with a bridge to the music studio loft - just don't fall down!):
And check out the gorgeous library underneath the bedroom, where he used the ceiling joist as bookshelves:

'The award winning team of renowned architect Otto Cserhalmi and master builders Glenbiq Constructions has created a brilliant heritage re-adaptation of a late 19th century church hall into one of Sydney's most breathtaking contemporary residences.'
The do not actually have a picture of the outside though.
Rosi, no offense taken. The submission wasn't really about the conversion, it was about the bookshelves in the ceiling of the library.
Ted, thanks. Seriously. If I ever grow up, I'll consider my life a failure. At age 51, someone thinks I organize my half-built home like a teenager. I'm truly flattered.
Pudifoot: No. :-)
I know at least one person who lives in a converted church, and part of my school has recently been converted from a church too. And this doesn't look like a very ambitious conversion either: America doesn't have listed properties so it doesn't matter about the age or anything, and the structure seems pretty sound.
Come on, there are enough boring property programmes on TV without having them on the internet too!
My thought was that he needed handrails for that stairway and railings on the bridge!
