Inside a bank turned luxury home

A former bank teller bought her old workplace and turned it into a spectacular home, complete with a bar in one vault and a sauna in the other.

Calhoun knew right away what she wanted to do with the old main vault -- convert it into a bar. She removed a wall of safe deposit boxes to free up seating room, but left the other wall of boxes intact.

All but 222 of the safety deposit boxes have been opened (there are no keys for the ones that are locked).

People left the darnedest things in them -- like used spectacles. She also found more common objects, like old coins and bank notes. There were also stock certificates, ledgers and savings passbooks, some of which had handwritten deposits of as little as 10 cents, she said. Calhoun saved some to display as memorabilia.
