Customer Feature: Divine Living in Repurposed Church

Sometimes the best projects rely on having faith in the vision. 

Such is the case with what is now New Holland Studios, one-of-a-kind apartments with character inspired by a higher power.  The apartments are a recent project of Harbin Lumber customer 180 Renovations, who served as the General Contractor for Norton NCREDIBLE Properties.  180 Renovations lived up to their name, completely transforming an abandoned historic church into nine stunning suites.

The original interior of the sanctuary

Originally built in 1904, New Holland Church served the textile Village of New Holland located northeast of Gainesville, Georgia. The church was originally constructed for Sunday services for both Methodist and Baptist congregations while serving as a public school during the week.

The Church exemplified late Victorian, Shaker craftsman’s architecture with high stairs, wide pews, and stained glass. The last service was held in 2013, and sat empty until 2019 when renovations started.

New Holland Studios offers seven studio apartments and three one bedroom “sanctuary apartments,” which feature 21 foot ceilings with original stained glass.  

“I am most proud of the way the sanctuary apartments turned out,” said Michael Bogue with 180 Renovations.  “The high ceilings and the stained glass just made for a striking result.”

Bogue and NCREDIBLE Properties put much effort into retaining the original character of the church, keeping original brickwork, support beams, and the original floors along with the stunning stained glass.

Apartments range from $800 – $1,500 per month.  

See more information on the apartments and how to lease on the NCREDIBLE Properties website.

Congratulations to 180 Renovations on a job deserving of lots of praise.
