Check out this house.
[Architect David Hertz] built a green house for his client, Francie Rehwald, using scrap parts from more than 230 feet long, 193 feet wide, and 60 feet tall, Boeing 747 jumbo jet. In order to make the house, the plane was cut into piece and larger parts were brought to the hills of Malibu by helicopter and crane. Plane’s wings were used to make the home’s roof, fuselage will comprise the guest house, and the cockpit windows form skylights…Cost of the new plane is 200 million, but the scraps cost $35,000 and nearly 4.5 million parts of the plane were nicely used for Eco cause than left for rust to eat and finally wasted.
Not too shabby for $35,000 in raw materials. The house is a bit too modern for my tastes, but there is something very appealing about living in what used to be a 747.
