This is the story of a man living in a customized 1960’s 727 Airplane.
In the past, the airplane served as a Greek aircraft but today, it’s home to Bruce Campbell.
He’s an aeronautics enthusiast in Portland, Oregon who decided to convert the jet into a home in a forest near the city. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

If you enjoyed this jet converted into a home you’ll absolutely LOVE our Free Daily Tiny House Newsletter with even more! Thank you!
I think it’s pretty cool that he lives in a jet aircraft. He seems like he has a lot of room to move about. Does he have some way of heating his plane??
Thank you for sharing !L
That’s pretty cool. Why the negative comments on this… This dude is doing it his way. Keep your bad attitudes to yourself. I think there’s a lot of lame houses on here but I am an adult and don’t want to sound like a prick. Love you all.
Thumbs Up for your comment Blake (Comet, INVSBLTY and others), I agree. Personally there are only a few homes shared here that I would want to live in “as is” but there are none that I haven’t taken some idea or inspiration from for when I finally commit to building my own. I hope when I’ve critiqued it’s been seen in the spirit of constructive comment I intended, to offer options and suggestions to everyone.
Thank you Blake–yeah; this is not my idea of Home Sweet Home but then again–I don’t live there either! And this guy might hate my house! Certainly an idea if you have access—there does seem to be a LOT of room that could be finished off any way the owner chose or could afford. Always interested in alternative structures and Mr Comet was actually really thrilled with this one!
I love tiny homes due to simplicity, less material things, easy to clean, less clutter,
Bare minimum furniture. Because what we need in this work are the ff: friends, roof over your head, a bed to rest & keep warm bathroom to get clean & ref to store food & stove to cook.
I like the idea and the concept. Just wondering if it’s still a work in process. But I hope that isn’t the finished product. I think he could have done a better job in the conversion.
To all the viewers of the houses and projects on Tiny House Talk: my philosophy when seeing a dwelling that does not strike my fancy, or is a disappointment, is to not say anything! It is their pride and joy, what gives me the right to critisize it?
But if I view a house that really appeals to my taste, than I go out of my way to congratulate and encourage that person!! Try it!
I have to agree with invisibly, I love viewing these tiny homes and getting ideas for when I eventually down size. Most of the time I like what I see, but there has been a few that I wasn’t to crazy over. I would try not to say anything. I wouldn’t want to hurt someone else’s feelings. As a young girl I was always taught if you can’t say something nice then don’t say nothing at all. Everyone has different ideas on how they want to decorate their home. That’s what makes the world go around. I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas has a wonderful day with their families and have a very Happy New Year!!
Interesting and refreshingly different! Many thanks for sharing your “home” with us….I know this may be a bit personal, but gotta know “How Much”?
I think I saw about $100,000 mentioned when I was looking at it on another site. That was just for the plane and transport if I recall. No or little of it for the land (already had it?) and improvements (not much done yet as you can see). Not exactly cheap.
Lol, nope, probably not cheap but you can tell it’s exactly what he wanted since he’s obviously an airplane buff, right? 😀
My first thought had nothing to do with the conversion itself – it was, How the heck did he get a plane into the woods?!
Living in a plane is an ultra-cool idea, but it seems to me to be less of a “conversion” as simply using the interior as living space, like a hard-wall tent. The set-up looks one step up from camping.
I’d love to see a plane conversion similar to some of the more spiffy bus conversions we’ve seen – something that really shows how the space could be utilized.
Still, living in a plane! how awesome is that?
That’s a great question… How the heck did they get it there?!
I would guess it was trucked in pieces (at least the wings off) and then craned in and reassembled on site. I agree with the assessment that he really hasn’t done much with it, yet. And maybe he won’t. We only need what we need and maybe he has all he needs for now.
Vaguely related , there was a guy (this was a lot of years ago, might have been in a Mechanics Illustrated) who took a smaller aircraft, just the fuselage, and made a luxury house boat / yacht out of it. As I recall it was very cool.
