Quote: Bruce Campbell leads the journalists of the news transmitter "CNN" in the middle of a forest piece. He wants to show them his new home. The way is worthwhile, because Campbells freshly furnished home is no usual wooden hut. The man from Oregon lives in a desolate Boeing 727-200.
Proudly points Campbell one of three toilets which he has brought in the old machine of the Olympic to airways again to the running. The fact that she is small, does not disturb him: «I am also small», he says. In the cabin he has most seats herausmontiert, now for it his sofa and an easy shower stand there. «A lot of intimacy does not offer this shower, but if one lives alone in the middle of the wood, this is not the main problem», explains Campbell further.
He already has the most necessary: Stream and an iPod with his favorite music. And Campbell already knows where he best stays: in the cockpit. However, even if he spends many hours at his new home, Campbell is glad about the summer: «The wings offer a pleasant shade.»

I believe that the US major airlines are now starting to phase out their 757s (I know American is), so I wouldn't be surprised if in years from now we hear of a guy buying a used 757 and transform it into his new home. I don't love it as much as I love the 727, but it would still be a cool thing to do.
Thanks for the links, I enjoyed watching the video.
A DC-10 or an L-1011 would probably make a much more livable home long term. However, getting a retired DC-10 or L-1011 to one's property could prove to be a real challenge unless one happened to live in the desert near an aircraft boneyard.

747-300! Master bedroom would be upstairs! Personal home office in the nose, then lay out the rest according to your desires. I think I'd put the dining room between the office and the rest of the place; kind of a neutral zone where it'd be a bit quiet. Just my two cents worth!
