Some people take recycling/re-purposing to an entirely new level. Bruce Campbell (not the actor), has turned an old airplane into his home:

SOURCE ARTICLE


If you happened to stumble across this home, you’d be forgiven for thinking there had been a terrible airplane accident. That’s because Bruce Campbell, a retired electrical engineer, lives, believe it or not, in retired Boeing 727 fuselage. The industrious recycler Bruce has had his old plane placed in woods near Portland, Oregon, where he lives happily amongst some of the original seating and even the airplane-style toilet. Bruce believes every old plane should be ‘upcycled’ like his has been, declaring on his website, “Jetliners can, and should, be transformed into wonderful homes – retirement into an aerospace class castle should be every airliner’s constructive fate. They should never be mindlessly scrapped.” He has transformed the inside of the plane into a workable living space, as you can see in the images below.

A beautiful setting to call home!

Stairway to Heavan!

Looks comfy!

This guy has a lot of stuff...

When you gotta go, you gotta go up the stairs!

This is something you normally don't want to see from the cockpit of an airplane.

Just for fun, here's another airplane converted into a dwelling.

Resale value is snip.

What a waste.

Hello flame retardants. I’m sure that’s real healthy living in one of those.

ETA: reading the title I first thought it was the guy from Army of Darkness.

Anyone with a fear of heights or flying will not be a customer. To each his own-don't see this catching on. Just saying.

I've seen people do it with railway carriages but I guess there's more room in a plane , more impressive visually too.

Now that's just too cool.

The Deadites stand no chance in catching Bruce Campbell in that! On an S Mart salary, he must have had to of embezzled corporate to afford that thang.

No embezzling, he just walked in with his boom stick, and they gave it to him.

I love it! Not much good for a family unless they use it as a 2nd home or holiday bolt hole. The 'bath' looks like an incentive to avoid soap and is in dire need of curtains. Still, it'd be pretty cool living in there on the short term. Get a bit of homegrown outside too. You post some good threads.


It reminded me of a documentary I saw a couple of years ago. Some rich couple decided they wanted a home built using 747 wings. Money to burn and that kind of style which only seems to occur to people who've never tightened their belts.

It's a beautiful looking place with great views. Malibu's well known as the Cumbria of the USA.

Not many sheep either. Underneath all the glamour of Malibu is an undercurrent of envy for the rugged beauty of Ambleside.

I haven't been there, but have been in a few others from Windermere through Keswick and over to Dungeon Ghyll. I'm envious because you live in a great area.
