    This video is great. The guy may be a bit eccentric, but in a good way. Sure, his living space is cluttered and won’t win any House Beautiful awards. But he’s got some good ideas. I’m glad I watched.

    Sorry to say, that is not a home. It is a fuselage filled with a lot of stuff. Looks more like a parttime hoarder living there.

    I am sure he could have done a better job with storage options, a bit too cluttery for my taste. Dont really like the flooring either, would have liked to see a more home like appearance in the floor choice, (must not have kids) and among other things. He shared no bathroom pics, would really like to see how he did the bathroom setup in the space. Also would like to know how many bedrooms he was able to add? How much do these airplanes costs and what was the shipping charge? Interesting idea, gives people one way to have a private plane, lol!

      Probably has a “bless this mess” mentality. But… we don’t have to live there, he does. And I bet you he’s as happy as a pig in mud.

    WOW! This man thinks way higher than most of us! Thank goodness there are people like him able to think of uses for things we trash. (Who knew they chopped up old airplanes….). I admire him…a lot! Obviously (I guess) being able to do his thinking work is way more important than a pretty decor. Also wonderful is his willingness to show people how to do what he has done. Thanks for posting this ‘tour”.
