The industrious recycler Bruce has had his old plane placed in woods near Portland, Oregon, where he lives happily amongst some of the original seating and even the airplane-style toilet. Bruce believes every old plane should be ‘upcycled’ like his has been.

Declaring on his website, “Jetliners can, and should, be transformed into wonderful homes – retirement into an aerospace class castle should be every airliner’s constructive fate. They should never be mindlessly scrapped.”

Bruce paid $100,000 for the old plane back in 1999. The costs of moving it and then what he’s spent since total another $120,000.

He’s made the inside of the plane into a comfortable living space, although he says it is still a work in progress.Bruce lives in the plane for six months a year, spending the rest of his time in Japan, where he is also arranging to buy old fuselage to create a second aircraft home.
