, I've realized that I want my next house to be.. different. How do I go about finding a warehouse/church/water tower to convert into a home?

My husband and I plan on selling our current house in about a year and a half. I'd like to find an unusual building we could convert into a house. I'm a competent carpenter and I'd like to do as much of the work as possible myself. I'm up for more or less anything non-conventional. Do you live in a converted space? How did you find it? How is it working out? What should I be looking for? What should I avoid? What have I not even thought of?
