When I think of churches, it’s normally as places I spent vast amounts of my childhood counting stitches in knee cushions. But this ex-church, which has seven bedrooms and a climbing wall? I would attend the hell out of that.

Designed by Linc Thelen Design and Scrafano Architects, it’s an old church in Chigaco that’s been converted into a luxury family home. There’s seven bedrooms, six bathrooms (for five people!) and 25’ ceilings. Oh, and the kid’s room has a climbing wall.
