“Couple’s Creative Endeavor”: Transforming a Retired Airplane into a Stunning 650-Sq-Ft Tiny Home

JN and Stephanie turned old airplanes into cool living spaces in Alaska. They made a unique place that’s also a flight school and an overnight stay spot.

Their airplane house is special. It has a wing deck, a cockpit with a flight simulator, and a big cargo door.

Originally, they planned to build runways, hangars, and cabins for students. But they changed their plans and decided to use old airplanes to save money.

They got a Boeing 727 and a DC9 for less than $100,000 each, but the transportation cost was over $100,000 each. So, they ended up spending more than half a million dollars on each airplane.

To make sure the house stays in place, they put 7-inch poles 20 feet into the ground and connected the airplanes to them. This makes the house strong enough to handle earthquakes and strong winds.

Inside, the airplane house has about 700 square feet. It has a mudroom, a mechanical room, and a living area. They kept the original cargo door, put a flight simulator in the cockpit, and plan to use Microsoft’s simulator for the flight controls.

This airplane house is a special place for people who want a unique experience in Alaska.

JN and Stephanie got the idea to turn airplanes into homes when they wanted to start a flight school in Alaska. They bought old Boeing 727 and DC9 airplanes for less than $100,000 each, but transportation costs were high.

They want to share the beauty of their airplane house with everyone. It’s a comfortable place for guests and a one-of-a-kind stay in Alaska.

To make sure the house stays safe, they put 7-inch poles 20 feet into the ground and connected the airplanes to them. This makes the house stable, even in bad weather.

The airplane house is special because it has original flight controls connected to Microsoft Flight Simulator. It also has cool things like a cockpit coffee station and a beer fridge.

Even though it cost a lot to make, around $600,000 to $800,000 for each airplane, it’s worth it for the unique and special living experience.

Inside the airplane house, you’ll find an original cargo door, a mudroom for storage, and a mechanical room for things like heating and electricity.

Even though it cost a lot to make, around $600,000 to $800,000 for each airplane, it’s worth it for the unique and special living experience.
