Was watching a repeat of a show called Extreme Home Makeover (first aired in February) and to my surprise they incorporated part of a SWA 737 fuselage into the home. The a/c was N304SW which was scrapped at Goodyear not too long ago and there it was in the canyon blue paint scheme with the registration clearly visible. Now sadly when the home was complete they painted the fuselage section white but anyway a neat application for a large piece of this high time a/c. It is so good to see these proud birds preserved in any way they can be!

Cool idea. I love when they integrate aircraft parts into home decoration. I would love to have a fist class seat in my place.
I have seen this one site, I can not remember it off hand. They made stylish furniture and decorations out of aircraft parts. I remember there is a receptionists desk made from the cowlings of a 747 engine. Cool stuff but very very expensive (I think that desk was $15k)

I think it would be just to damn cool to build a house from a a/c fuselage. Though a 737 may not be the roomiest thing for a family, it's a great idea.

Rest assured, you would know where my guys room would be!

Considering that there are families that live in even smaller areas today, it's not bad, though I would hazard a guess and say the rooms would be very long rather than wide.



Window seats may be over-rated, but I'll take a window seat on a DC9 anyday

Why make it a home when you can make it an add-on? Make it your getaway room when you need to relax or take a nap.


From the airport with love
