I love it when a house has history. And yet, a great origin story isn't even the best part about living in a converted building. It's the revealing architecture and all those little design touches that sentimental owners leave intact from their home's former life–each one offering its own clue about the people or things that used to live there.

We've been lucky enough to feature a few converted homes here on Apartment Therapy, some of which are collected here for you to browse and admire. So without further ado, here are 10 happy home dwellers who've found a new use for these old buildings.
