An Engineer Turned A Boeing Aeroplane Into A Really Cool Home

A retired aeroplane is going to cost a lot more money than a trailer and have fewer amenities, but it’s still possible to make the space surprisingly livable.

Bruce Campbell, a former electrical engineer, turned a Boeing 727 aeroplane into a home in Portland, and Reuters has photos of the space.

Campbell has spent about $US220,000 turning the plane into a home, and he spends six months out of the year living there, according to Reuters.

Reuters explains how Campbell goes about day-to-day life in the aircraft:

He sleeps on a futon, bathes in a makeshift shower and cooks with a microwave or toaster, eating mostly canned food and cereal. A shoe rack with numerous pairs of slippers greets visitors, and he asks that everyone wear slippers or socks to avoid tracking in dirt.

Others have had the same idea as Campbell, as i09 points out, and some have gone even further and built entire structures around planes.
