Now Reading: TrendHome : Converted Tin Chapel
Written 6 years ago by
Artist and craftsman Nick Kenny put about as much heart into the renovation of this charming singular-looking church as one could. Constructed at the end of the 19th century from prefabricated sections of corrugated iron and affectionately known as a ‘Tin Chapel’, his shabby-chic home is located in the picturesque and historic town of Faversham on the Kent coast.
Nick undertook and executed the fundamental elements of the conversion in a completely unique way. “Pretty much everything in here has been bought for a pittance as scrap or salvage, or picked up for next to nothing at auction,” Nick explains. “The bathroom is fitted with a reclaimed sink and a shower I made myself from old boiler parts, and clad in reclaimed tiles I simply re-cut to fit the space.”
