American electrical engineer Bruce Campbell from Oregon has built a comfortable house out of a former airplane.
It is located in the forest, in the Hillsborough area, not far from Portland.
It took the electrical engineer 10 years to convert a commercial airliner into a functional house, building a cabin, an entrance staircase, and other features.
This house, a modified Olympic Airways 727, is 40 meters long and 4 meters wide.
On the airplane that he bought for $100,000, he changed the floor to transparent.
Bruce Campbell, who brought his idea to life, says:
“Airplanes have seats, overhead compartments, and a regular toilet. They come equipped with almost everything necessary for people’s lives.”
At the tail of the airplane, he built a walkway, which serves as the main entrance to the original accommodation.
The bathroom is located near the stairs and is the only functional one among the three onboard the plane.
At his discretion, he installed a shower cabin, kitchen utensils, a bed, and other furniture in the living area.
He also has a workbench where he creates high-precision devices that test medical equipment designed for electric shocks.
Bruce also completely restored the lighting in the functional house.
The nose of the airplane, the houses, and the front landing gear are raised off the ground with a prefabricated reinforced concrete structure and fenced with a blue material.
The airplane itself and its wings are coated in blue. Repairing a house with wings is not cheap, as the paint peels off and needs to be restored.
Bruce regularly cleans his “airplane house” on specific days.
He registered his house and its purchase with the United States Federal Aviation Administration.
There, the house was registered in the records so that pilots would know it was not a crashed airplane.
