Artist and craftsman Nick Kenny has converted a run-down Victorian chapel, affectionately referred to as the 'Tin Chapel,' into a stylish residence in Kent, England.

The building is from the late 19th century and has been built from sections of corrugated metal, which led to it being given the nickname the Tin Chapel.

The project, which took two years to complete, included the refurbishment of the Tin Chapel with entirely recycled materials, incorporating used and discarded items that add to the eclectic charm of the new home.

The ground floor is open concept and includes a kitchen, workshop, living room, dining room, a washroom and a tiny spiral staircase that leads to a wood-paneled bedroom above.
