Homes with a Past: Church, Schoolhouse and Silo

Guest Caboose

1756 Defoor Ave NW, Atlanta GA

For sale: $395,000

A classic bungalow in Atlanta is attractive enough on its own, but it comes with the added bonus of an unusual guest house that is a cozy as, well, a caboose! Painted and completely renovated, the caboose guest house has a kitchenette, small living area and nook-sized bedroom.

Modern Wares

1121 Delano St, Houston TX

Currently off the market

The steel, concrete and pipes of a warehouse (above) were transformed into chic accents for this modern home on the Houston real estate market. Built as a warehouse in the 1960s, the home has been customized into a 4,704-square-foot living space with high ceilings and large windows.

Barn-livin'

10 Albert Ave, Barrington RI

For sale: $339,000

No need to make room for farm animals in this barn. The Barrington, RI home (above) was once a Civil War-era barn and much of that character was retained in the renovation. Built in 1865, the barn was converted to a "sunlight" 3-bedroom home in 1996.

Former Storefront

2116 N Leavitt St, Chicago IL

For sale: $895,000

This storefront Chicago property (above) was home to several different kinds of shops over the years, but it has settled into its latest incarnation as a single-family home. The attractive conversion can't hide its past, though, which is nice given its dramatic 20-foot-ceilings, "restaurant-grade" kitchen and roof-top terrace.

Forest Ranger Station

22707 Covey Ln, Rathdrum ID

For sale: $359,000

Not only is this cabin nearly 100 years old, it was also once a forest ranger station serving the Sawtooth Wilderness, declared by the U.S. government to have "the clearest air in the continental United States." The converted 3-bedroom home sits on a third of an acre and includes beach access to the Twin Lakes.

Unique Church

2007 NW 61st St, Seattle WA

Pending sale: $789,000
