Yahoo News: Man Turns Airplane Into Home

Many people have different ideas of what their dream home would be. Some would love a place by a lake, a nice apartment in the city or a house in the countryside.
.
Bruce Campbell of Oregon had his own ideas and decided to purchase a Boeing 727-200 and turn it into his dream home.
.
According to the Yahoo News article and video, Campbell purchased the plane for $100,000, gutted it and has created a home for himself. The “home” is still not complete and is still undergoing renovations. The airplane home has running water, one working bathroom and has been wired for electricity. The plane lacks privacy but due to it being located in the woods this is not much of an issue.

Campbell decided to create a home out of a retired airplane due to feeling that wood was a terrible building material. He says that “airlines are profoundly well-designed”. There is no TV or radio on board so he uses his iPod and spends time in the cockpit for entertainment.
.
While checking out Bruce Campbell’s site AirplaneHome.com, I read that he has been working on this project (home) for over 10 years. He spends half of his time in Nippon and hopes to build a second airplane home there someday.
