I have spent the last several years designing plans for the interior re-orginization of a 747-100/200 to be used for the purpose of a residence. There are a variety of properties I have considered, however, I am unable to locate the person to contact to purchase the fuselage. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE OR HOW I CAN OBTAIN A USED DEAD FUSELAGE !PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
Here are some of the spec.s on the 747-100H I've put together:
Length, width, height, all as normal.
Upper deck is a library with the cockpit's large windows used as a sun-lit reading area.
3-deck atrium runs from basement (cargo-hold) to library in upper deck, spiral staircase surrounding.
Forward area is master suite, with master bedroom incorporated into nose, king-size bed against front wall, TV where radar usually is sunk into wall.
Large living room with areas of floor sunken so eyes are level with windows, kitchen fits perfectly in 20 ft. wide fuselage, dining room the same.
2nd master suite at back end of airplane, similar construction/arangement. Family, entertainment, and sitting rooms as well as dining, breakfast, and casual dining rooms all fit easily in the 4000 square foot area.
Airplane is on a hill which makes it level above the ground as though it were on landing gear, which it obviously can't be since after a while they'd collapse and that's kind of insecure anyway. The hill has a garage in it (lower deck is used for storage - something which we all need more of - and walk-in freezing since I cook a lot, as well as my model shop since I'm a model freak). Engine casings (if possible) contain air conditioning units and other residence-necessities, as fit. Bulk cargo hold areas contain wiring and plumbing mains.
If I could figure out how I'd post partial blueprints here (designed using AutoSketch, similar to AutoCAD).
