A couple in Chicago bought a 19th-century church and turned it into a private home and event space for the community.

The had couple toyed with the idea of living in a unique building in the future, but as they had just gone through divorces, they felt like they weren't in the market. That didn't stop them from looking through Zillow, however, and while perusing the real estate site one day, a church in Logan Square popped up.

"We thought it would be funny to go look at a church," Jacoby said. "The minute we walked up the stairs, we were like, 'Oh s---.' The church found us just as much as we found it."
