Boeing 727 room add-on

Planeroom
Bill added a plane to his house –

So you think you’ve got decorating problems? Next time you whine about it, think about Billie Broome. Her husband, Rick, added the better part of a Boeing 727 to their house, then built a sunroom around it.

All Billie can say at this point is: “Thank goodness he didn’t bring the entire plane home.” Only the front section, from the wings forward, graces their residence — although “graces” hardly describes the looming presence of a 15,800-pound, 50-foot-long, 12.5-footwide, 27.5-foot-tall objet d’art.

Oddly enough, you can’t tell there’s a gargantuan piece of a plane in their Broadmoor-area home if you’re standing outside. But open a door on the north side of the house, and you suddenly find yourself walking down the plane’s aisle, enveloped in a cocoon of the original decor: gray rug on the walls; a pink, orange and blue mural; more gray industrial rug on the floor. You can also board the plane via a catwalk from the kitchen, or from gleaming rollaway air stairs near Billie’s Early American couch in the sunroom.

Life: just plane obsessed, plane, rick, house – Gazette.com – [via] Link.
