My Tree thanks to slodwick

A friend and I got talking at the bus stop the other morning, and she mentioned that the house down the road was the old hospital and that she could never live in it. I found that interesting and I wondered why, and all she could say was she got bad vibes from the house just walking past. There's no way she could stay overnight there.

Then she told me the story of a lady she knew who was living in the old morgue. She didn't know, and about six months after she moved in, one night at a party some drunken person told her the history of the house she lived in. A week later she moved out. Couldn't handle the idea of it.

So, I'm asking you and everyone you know: could you live in.....

In Edinburgh at the moment the old infirmary is being turned into houses so people will be living the old wards which I think will be every interesting because they have to know what the building was before.

On living in a Church I would love to. It is one of my things I would do if I suddenly had money. There is an abandoned one I would love to buy and do up on the other side of the city. I love the idea of those really high ceilings and the floor to roof windows although getting curtains might be a nightmare.

Would you consider living in anywhere like that?

I've seen a couple of old churches renovated into houses, and while they look nice, they still have a church 'vibe'. One house/church I've seen has a three metre glass window crucifix in a wall. The acoustics in the house though would be amazing, but I couldn't lie around in my underwear knowing that G-d had once lived there.

I think it all comes down to the time between what it was, and being a home. If others had lived in the place before me, I'd be fine with any of the options other than the morgue.
