House built out of a plane

A superb combination or architecture and engineering. A woman in California is in the process of building a house and other smaller structures on her property entirely out of a jet, reusing the entire jet. The most expensive part was flying the plane’s wings to the site. The plane itself was surprisingly inexpensive, and a great way of getting non-biodegradable items out of a landfill.

After working on my own house project, I’m amazed that this woman is already thinking about her next house’s material: a boat.
