Looking for a unique property that boasts more than 1,000 square feet of living space, a woodsy Oregon location and ... wings? Get a load of Bruce Campbell's retired Boeing 727-turned-home.
Oh you know … another day, another story about a dude who lives in a retired Boeing 727-200 parked in the middle of the woods.
While I’ve blogged before about a solar-powered home in Malibu built almost entirely from the bits and pieces of a junked 747 complete with a roof made from the aircraft’s wing, an electrical engineer and self-confessed nerd of the highest order from Oregon named Bruce Campbell (no, not thatBruce Campbell) has taken a decidedly different approach to adaptive reuse involving a decommissioned jetliner. Instead of salvaging the raw materials of a former Olympic Airways 727 procured for $100,000 and going the deconstruction route by using said materials to construct a structure that has some semblance of a “normal” home, Campbell towed the aircraft (an additional $12,500 plus tens and thousands of dollars spent on logistics, temporarily removing the wings from the fuselage, etc.) from Portland-Hillsboro Airport to a rural 10-acre lot and moved right on in. Well, it wasn't that simple, but you get the gist of it.
