tin chapel

Isn't this just the most charming little chapel? Located in the town of Faversham on the Kent coast of England, unlike most converted church homes where brick is the material of choice, this "Tin Chapel," as it's affectionately known, was constructed at the end of the 19th century from prefabricated sections of corrugated iron.

It's a tiny coastal church for a historic coastal town, and the entire conversion - from the neutral palate of white and sky blue to all of its shabby-chic details and wide-open layout - has a very beach housey sort of feel to it. I love that the owner, artist and craftsman Nick Kenny, worked on this renovation almost exclusively using materials that were salvaged or picked up at auctions for next to nothing. It's incredible what can be created with a little bit of imagination and some re-purposing skills.
