Living Off Grid in a Boeing 727


Living Off Grid in a Boeing 727

ss-120712-airplane-home-02.ss_full-640x426Living off the grid requires planning, investing, and thinking outside the box. Such is the case for Bruce Campbell (not that Bruce Campbell), an electrical engineer who has made a home in a renovated Boeing 727.

Yep, you read that right. Unique homes made out of reclaimed materials aren’t a new concept, but Campbell’s execution of it is no small feat. Campbell, who lives in Oregon, purchased the airplane for $100,000 in the late 1990s. After renovations, (he’s spent around $220,000 on his home), including a bathroom, kitchen, sleeping area, and no shortage of emergency exits, the interior provides about 1,066 sq. ft. of living space.
