From a 200-year-old Dutch barn from upstate New York that's now a country home in Mississippi to a crumbling Lake Ontario lighthouse restored to its former glory, You Live in What tours amazing living spaces and introduces the people whose creativity and vision made it all possible. A Chicago firehouse conversion is almost too authentic, and a historic livery in Birmingham, Alabama, is now a hip live-work space for a photographer and her family. There's also a charming schoolhouse in beachy Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi, a New Orleans shipping container home that shows lot size doesn't matter if you're creative and a Wisconsin church whose residential conversion seems divinely inspired. These one-of-a-kind homes and their visionary homeowners prove that with a little imagination, you can live in almost anything.
Visionary homeowners prove that with a little imagination, you can live in almost anything. Go inside a once-dilapidated Sacramento fire station that's been resurrected into a beautiful home, a 150-year old castle overlooking Lowell, Mass., with dozens of rooms for an ever-growing family, a Jewish Temple in Alabama that's now an artistic couple's residence and art studio, an off-beat Chicago museum transformed into a boutique bed and breakfast, and many more.

Explore an urban oasis crafted from an industrial ink factory, a funky fire station home in Northern California, a church from the 1930s that's been cleverly expanded into a multi-room family home, a Houston artist's abode built from a commercial glass warehouse and a 200-year-old stone meeting hall in New York.
