When looking for a new home, combing through the endless real estate listings is almost as frustrating as finding a seat on a packed flight. Suggestion? Maybe you should start scrolling through the aircraft pages instead. Oregon native Howard Bruce Campbell (no relation to Evil Dead actor Bruce Campbell…I think) purchased this retired Boeing 727 back in 1999 for the low, low cost of $100,000. Campbell then spent another $120,000 figuring out the logistics of site rent, wing and tail removal and transportation — bringing his total to a modest $220,000. His website for the project details instructions for others looking to follow him down the runway of aviatrix abodes and even offers directions on how to stop by for a visit.
This isn’t your average mobile home.
Lots of natural light options.
No need for a quirky doormat here.
“One cheese pizza please…We’re the second house on the left, you can’t miss us.”
Built-in light show every night.
All the comforts of home!
The one, um, small drawback: airplane bathrooms aren’t known for being too homey.

During 2008, Hari and Karl Berzins lost their home and restaurant business. The recession hit them hard, but they didn’t let their misfortunes stop them from moving forward. They learned their lesson and vowed never to use credit again. So when they rebuilt, they did so on a small scale. (Literally.) They used their small savings to buy a plot of land in Virginia in 2011. There, they built a home that’s smaller than 200 square feet. And they couldn’t be happier. They are the Tiny House Family.
Hari and Karl share the 168sq ft home with their two children.
Life with Archer and Ella in this little house would seem cramped…
The small house includes a galley kitchen, lounge-diner, bathroom and two lofted bedrooms.
It only cost the Berzins $12,000 to build their small home on a flatbed trailer.
Most of the construction was completed by Karl.
The family also grows their own crops and cares for livestock.
They have found a way to enjoy simple and inexpensive living.
By avoiding debt, the couple is saving up money to build a bigger home for their growing family on their land.
But for now, this tiny home is their only home. And it’s adorable.
Building tiny houses to avoid debt and conserve space is an interesting phenomenon that is sweeping the country. Learn more about how the Berzin family did it by visiting their Facebook page. The most important thing about a home isn’t necessarily how big it is or how many shiny toys you have in it. It’s about living there with those you cherish.
