Linc Thelen custom designed and fabricated many of the home’s details like the climbing wall, dining room table, Murphy bed in the nursery and much of the furniture. The home showcases historic details of the church with original stained glass windows, bell tower, exposed brickwork and ceiling turnbuckles while integrating all of the conveniences of modern living.
