Couple Renovates Abandoned Public Bathroom into House

Tracy Woodhouse and Graham Peck found a century-old abandoned public bathroom on the shore of Scarborough, UK and decided to turn it into a home:

The £35,000 project is now finished and the couple have settled down in their new home, which they have named The Lookout. Their television is situated where the men's urinals used to be, and their bathroom is in the former ladies' toilets. [...]

Metal gates at the separate entrances for Gentlemen and Ladies are signs of the building's original use as well as the bay window – which used to be the toilet's kiosk, but once they started digging much of its past was revealed.
