Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The bad news is that thousands of years of war, death and obsolescence have left a world of abandoned and dilapidated buildings and other structures. The good news is that the enterprising among us can build some wild new homes if we want to.
Thanks to time and constant progress, many of the old buildings now stand empty, waiting to be cleaned up and settled into the distant homes that adults talk about. Guaranteed to blow your mind, abandoned Building, an abandoned elementary school campus building has been transformed into a wonderful new home by a creative and resourceful man.
A Canton, Ohio, resident named Kynsey Wilson purchased a 45,000-square-foot home for only $35,000. Her secret? She bought an abandoned elementary school.
Wilson is currently working to make the old building into a home, but only a piece of the second floor. The rest, she is converting into “a public space, co-work environment, some conference rooms, my home office…(and) as many as 15 guest rooms for visiting family and friends.” Wilson has so much space beyond what she needs. I mean, it is a full-sized elementary school. In fact, she is open to suggestions from anyone on how to use it. In her own words, “If somebody has a really great idea and is motivated and wants to come partner up with me, I’m open to it. I’ve got a lot of square footage.”
