Airplane Homes – Why Not Live In An Airplane?

How cool would it be to live in your very own airplane?  If that’s to expensive for you then you can stay at an airplane hotel in Costa Rica or Stockholm Sweden.  People have some crazy but great ideas.

Hotel Costa Verde, Costa Rica – Boeing 727 Suite-Airplane Hotel

The Hotel Costa Verde converted an old 727 fuselage into a two bedroom suite.  They used a 1965 Boeing 727 air-frame that was used by South Africa Airlines and Avianca Airlines out of Colombia.

Joanne Ussery’s Boeing 727 Airplane House In Benoit, Mississippi

Joanne wanted to purchase a mobile home and put it next to her lake after she lost her house to a fire.  Instead her brother in law suggested that she buy a Boeing 727 fuselage and turn it into a house.  So that’s what she did.  She paid about $2,000 for the 727 fuselage.  Then she had to spend another $4,000 to move the fuselage onto her property and another $25,000 to remodel the fuselage into a home.

    Woodlyn Park in Waitomo, NZ. There's not only a Bristol freighter turned into two suites, but also Hobbit houses, a yacht turned into hotel rooms, and boxcar rooms.

    I like the first airplane home! The wooden furniture and interiors give the tranquil atmosphere inside the house. Proper maintenance should be frequently observed as wood furniture is prone to termites and the like.
