Home buyers are turning decommissioned firehouses into modern homes, deploying architectural creativity and cash to create one-of-a-kind living spaces.
These homes have no yards. Originally constructed to house large vehicles, they boast cavernous, dark, interior spaces that often require extensive and expensive reconfiguring. Their common areas sit level with the sidewalk, making it easier for passersby to peer in.
For their ardent fans and other nostalgia buffs, though, there is nothing better than living in a firehouse.
