About two decades later, Bruce Campbell heard about Joanne Ussery, a hairdresser from Mississippi who bought a Boeing 727 plane and transformed it into her home. Her previous house burned down, so after that she decided to build a functional airplane home next to a peaceful lakeside.
He was already moving forward with his freight van home idea, but Campbell thought a gigantic plane sounded so much more innovative and fun to play with. After all, he strongly believed airplanes should be saved from becoming scrap metal. Land wasn’t an issue because he already owned 10 acres, but he’d need enough money to buy and transport this unconventional kind of vehicle to Oregon.
