The airplane’s cabin is gorgeous!
64-year-old retired electrical engineer Bruce Campell has always had a keen eye for invention. In his early twenties, he invested $23,000 in 10 wooded acres near Hillsboro, Oregon, and he had a plan. He constructed the most unusual mansion imaginable for himself using an old plane and a sizable piece of land.

Campbell has always delighted in dismantling and putting things back together to create something fresh. He wanted to use this piece of property as the base for the home he intended to build for himself out of a collection of retired cargo ships. Campbell believed he had created a completely original design for a home, but he later learned that a structure quite identical to his had already been built. The Mississippi hairdresser Joanne Ussery was discovered by Bruce Campbell about twenty years after the conception of his plan. She’d converted a Boeing 727 into her residence. She made the decision to rebuild in the shape of a plane after her former home burned down and to relocate next to a peaceful river. After giving it some thought, Campbell decided to change his plan of action.
He also changed them significantly in some other ways. Continue reading the article to find out more about Campbell’s airplane home and to view more pictures.
Campbell paid Olympic Airways a whopping $100,000 in 1999 to buy a Boeing 727. When he originally purchased the enormous plane, he had to get it to the Oregon woods. The fact that the plane had to be brought all the way from Athens, Greece, added to the difficulty of the situation. He paid $220,000 for the jet after factoring in the approximate $120,000 total cost of transportation. But he thought the money he spent on the jet was money well spent.
The basic essentials of life are offered on board. The aircraft’s restroom and a few of the original seats have been retained. Campbell also installed a washing machine and a sink.
Despite the fact that the Boeing 727 is extremely roomy, Campbell does not spend much time at his unusual home. His kitchen consists of a microwave and a toaster, and his preferred diet consists of cereal and canned items.
Although we’re not sure whether we’d like to live in this plane as Campbell does, we are certainly amazed at what he was able to do! Just have a look at this cool-looking airplane. Making such a significant accomplishment must feel amazing.
