Bruce Campell, a 64-year-old retired electrical engineer has always had a very creative vision. When he was in his early twenties, he bought a 10-acre piece of land for 23,000 dollars in the woods of Hillsboro, Oregon with a very clear vision on what to do with it. He took an old airplane and a big piece of land and turned it into the most unique home on earth.
Wait until you see the inside!
Ever since he was young, Campbell has had an affinity for tinkering with old objects and creating new things. His plan for this piece of land was to use it as the place to build a home for himself, a home he wanted to fashion out of several different freighters. It seemed to be a very innovative plan, but then Campbell heard about a home someone else had built. About two decades after he first came up with his plan, Bruce Campbell heard about Joanne Ussery, a hairdresser from Mississippi. She’d bought a Boeing 727 and transformed it into a home. Her previous home had burned down, so she chose to renovate a functional airplane next to a quiet river. This made Campbell think and he decided to change his plans.
And he changed them quite drastically! Keep reading to find out how Campbell made a home out of airplane and to take a look at the pictures and the video!
In 1999, Campbell decided to buy a Boeing 727 aircraft from Olympic Airways for a whopping 100,000 dollars. When he’d bought the plane, he needed to transport the enormous vehicle to the forest in Oregon. Since the plane had to be imported from Athens, Greece, this transportation turned out to be a bit of an issue. The transport costs eventually added up to about 120,000 dollars, which meant that he basically paid 220,000 dollars for the plane. To him, though the plane was worth every single penny.
