Emily, from Ohio, who posts under @forsythe_em, revealed how they were making their “dream home” from the unusual dwelling.

She first shared about the renovation in December 2020 where she gave a walk-through of the run-down location.

The front door still had a sign indicating it had been the Liverpool Township Police Department of Liverpool, Ohio.

Emily revealed the police building had been located “right down the block from where we live” and they had snapped it up.

Thankfully, Emily said her partner was a “#fixerupperhusband” so was tackling any renovation work.

And it certainly needed some TLC.

Upstairs still had desks covered with office papers, and she said this area was to become the master bedroom.

It had a gallery window looking down on the police station’s entrance room, which would be the lounge.

Meanwhile, the separate men’s and women’s bathrooms would be combined to become one giant bathroom.

Emily admitted they were relying on YouTube videos to help with the remodelling and they also were leaning on “good friends/family willing to help us.”

Later clips showed the living room decorated with green paint and wooden floors, and a finished bedroom for daughter Evie with a purple record player.

Many people were quick to chime in with their views, and many praised her hard work.

One said: “I want a weird unique home anyways, I would love to do something like this.”

Another added: “Glad I’m not the only one with a gun rack above my toilet”, and Emily replied: “You can never be too safe.”

Others said they would be “too scared” to stay the night there.
