Just a short drive outside of Portland tucked into the woods of Hillsboro, you will discover the wonderful and mysterious Airplane Home! Electrical engineer Bruce Campbell (no, not Ash from Evil Dead) bought a retired 727 Boeing jet for $100,000 and has been living in it ever since!
Campbell believes retired airplanes can be used as an excellent source for quality affordable housing. The airtight design keeps out pests and dust and they are strong and durable enough to withstand earthquakes and storms. With all the seats removed from the cabin, the 1,066 square feet airplane body is surprisingly spacious. Plus all of the hatches, latches, and tech in the plane makes it a cool as hell place to live!
