In December of 2016, Anastasiia and Gunther, a young Maryland couple, were on the lookout for a restoration project. So, when they saw a for-sale sign in front of an old church up the road from their house, they stopped the car and looked inside.
Around six months and $320,000 later, it was theirs.
Now, the couple and their three children live in the 120-year-old All Saints Church. While they're actively renovating it, it still maintains many of its original details.
What is now called All Saints House was deconsecrated in the 1970s,Anastasiia told Business Insider. Since then, it has seen three separate owners (not including Anastasiia and Gunther) who have added lofts, rooms, skylights, and bathrooms to the space.
The couple said that when they bought the home, it was livable, but it had sat empty for years and needed some fine-tuning. So, they began chipping away at their long list of restoration projects, which they document on Instagram .
So far, completed projects include the stripping of dangerous lead paint from the front door, adding a breakfast bar in the kitchen, redesigning the master bedroom,and renovating the kitchen.
Business Insider caught up with Anastasiia to find out what it's like to live in a house with over a century of history.
