Engineer Spends $220,000 Upcycling A Retired Boeing 727 Into A Home In The Woods

Standard

 

The plane looks just like an ordinary jetliner, complete with wings and landing gear, except that it rests on pillars. However, the inside of this unusual home is quite a different picture. The plane’s interior has been changed quite significantly to make as much free living space as possible out of its 1,066 square feet. However, Campbell plans to improve the airplane from the inside with features like a working lavatory, LED lighting, and seating.

If you’re interested in more information on this recycled airplane home, go visit Campbell’s website, where he explains his beautiful project in great detail.

Retirement into an aerospace class castle should be every jetliner’s constructive fate. They should never be mindlessly scrapped” – said Bruce Campbell, the aircraft’s owner (and resident).

Shredding a beautiful and scintillating jetliner is a tragedy in waste, and a profound failure of human imagination.

Jetliners are masterful works of aerospace science, and their superlative engineering grace is unmatched by any other structures people can live within.

They’re incredibly strong, durable, and long lived. And they easily withstand any earthquake or storm. Their interior is easy to keep immaculately clean because they are sealed pressure canisters.

You need to acquire two things: An airliner, and suitable land to host it.

Then you need to transport your airliner to your land. That’s the most daunting challenge.
