Woman Buys Bank She Used to Work at and Transforms it into Home

This is a home conversion I would never have dreamed of. Cathy Calhoun has transformed an old bank into a beautiful home! The historic National Bank of Spring City was built in 1872. It closed after over a century operating in 1989 and was put up for auction with all its contents intact. Calhoun, who used to work at the bank as a teller, loved the old building and put in a bid for it and won (for a cost of $52,000).

While remodeling, she tried to preserve as much of the original bank as possible. She wanted to show off the big vault and converted it into a bar and the skylights, chandeliers, and the clock out front are original to the building.
