Weird Homes Tour – Portland
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 servee as an excellent source for quality housing. The airtight design keeps out pests and dust. Their strength and durability also enables them to withstand earthquakes and storms. With all the seats removed from the cabin, the 1,066 square feet airplane body actually feels surprisingly spacious. Plus all of the hatches, latches, and tech in the plane makes it a cool as hell place to live. We bet that you’ll want to live in an airplane home too!
