Man Spent Over $200K To Live In An Abandoned Plane In The Forest. Has All His Work And Money Paid Off?

Likely all people have a dream about owning the perfect home. As it turns out, the most creative of us are able to design comfortable homes in the most unexpected places.

Engineer Bruce Campbell spends 6 months a year at his “summer cottage” in the Oregon forests for already more than 15 years. He bought this place almost 4 decades ago. Once he came up with an idea: he decided to "save” one of the airliners unsuitable for further operation from recycling. This is how Campbell became the owner of the decommissioned Boeing 727 in 1999. Many years of hard work and about $220,000 paid off: the man converted the airliner into a quite comfortable and rather modest dwelling.

The home is designed according to the high-tech style: the interior contains almost no wood and textiles, while the floor is made of plexiglass. This might seem unusual, but Bruce received an opportunity to enjoy the “inner world" of his aircraft: the 727 became a new toy for the engineer.

Campbell repaired the electricity, equipped the water supply and drainage systems. The conditions on board are rather ascetic, but comfortable to relax and work. The compact bathroom is also completely functional.

There is no fully-fledged stove or oven in the small kitchen, but Campbell has everything he needs for food storage and cooking.

Many people consider Bruce eccentric, but he likes to live alone away from the noisy city. Moreover, the man is ready to repeat his experience again: recently he was considering the possibility of buying a Boeing 747 in Japan.

Campbell is by no means the only person who decided to exchange traditional housing for something unusual. A few years ago, Jordan Menzel bought a 1976 trailer that hadn’t been changed since that time.

All the places are used for their intended purpose: well-thought-out storage niches made it possible to create a functional and comfortable space for the family with a little child.
