A lot of people want to have a unique home. They want their house to be one-of-a-kind and to have it as something special that no one else has ever seen. There aren't a lot of people who will actually go out of their way to make this happen, but Bruce Campbell wasn't like other people.

As a former electrical engineer, this Oregon man realized that his passion for aircrafts could be used to help him make something truly unique. He took a Boeing 727 and turned it into his home.

He started by purchasing the large jet in 1999 for $100,000. He moved the plane into a small forest where he started to work on it. Slowly but surely, he was able to convert the jet into a comfortable living space.

The airplane is propped up on pillars so that it is sturdy and leveled. Campbell wanted to keep as many of the aspects of the plane as possible. He kept most the instrumentation of the cockpit even though it obviously isn't needed, but he just likes how it looks. The cockpit is kept mostly in tact, but operates as his entertainment room.

It's still a work in progress, but it's already really impressive.

He's done a lot of really cool things with the plane to make it livable. His reasoning for starting this awesome project are pretty interesting...
