It seems like if you were going to do that much work to make it livable, putting in a real shower might be worth it.

A Boeing 727-200? In Oregon?

"Bruce Campbell" or "D.B. Cooper"?

This moron is quite possibly the worst engineer, ever. In addition to a shower that looks like a retarded Cabbage Patch Doll slapped it together, he's got the entire plane resting on pallets that are going to rot away to nothing in less than a year and leave that thing sitting in the mud. He hasn't actually built anything, it just looks like he took out the seats and moved in his stuff, and his stuff makes him look like a hoarder. 10 years resulted in this? He must be a drunk.

Good idea, bad execution.

mark12A: Not impressed. He had years to work on it, and it doesn't look very nice.



Agreed. I, too, hold aircraft-converted-into-living-quarters to very high standards, and my metrics also take "time spent" into account.

TFA wasn't anything I'd hoped it would be.

Here I thought it was a Fark-ready story about how a man refuses to leave an airplane and claims he's paid for the seats in advance. Bonus: A woman and alcohol are involved.

RTFA and it sucks.

How did he move the aircraft to that location? How did he plumb it? How did he wire it, on the grid or off with generated power? What the hell?

Also, the pallets holding this thing up will decay and collapse in less than a year in Oregon humidity. Seriously might want to consider a permanent stilt construction.

hmm. Sure, remove all the storage bins and just leave yer crap all over the place .... Okie dokie
And another vote for putting a real shower or hell, a tub, in the thing. I would have gone with shower and jacuzzi, maybe also an above ground pool below a wing. Oh, and nice front support, mister engineer... those look like railroad ties. Small quake and that thing is going to fall.

After RTFA...

That guy's vision is crap. The 737 looks like a bum's house inside.

I like the idea, and I'm glad he's happy with the result - but if you're going to convert a non-standard space into full-time living quarters it makes sense to work with a designer who can help you maximize the area.

My first thought was "how hard could it have been to convert one of the toilets into a shower?" There's three. Rip one out and make it a shower room.

The Gentleman Caller: It's a decent zombie base as well. High enough for them not to reach, and enough room for supplies until they zombie shuffle off after a deer or something. I think I saw Carl. CARL? HAS ANYONE SEEN CARL!! HE WAS SUPPOSED TO STAY IN THE HOUSE! CAAAARRRLLLL!!!!


I keep wishing Carl would just die so that plot device could die, too.

It would be a biatch to heat and aluminum hulls (like Airstreams) are a biatch condensation wise outside of the desert. 
 
Also, who did the interior design, a couple kids he hired from a dorm?

Some of these plane to home conversions are very nice. This one, not so much.

Yeah ... I like the idea of living in a converted plane, but his chosen style is very, very utilitarian.
