I........ guess it makes a home cockpit a no-brainer!  :Whistle:

That DC-8 is impressive, nice way for an aircraft mechanic to retire

Hah - I bet it's hard to get rid of the smell - I've been in a bunch of old decomisioned military planes and they all smell of old electronics and rubber...

I'd like to live in one provided the cockpit is converted to a flight sim cockpit with the windows out has a 180 degree projection of flight sim scenery.. yeah.

I wouldn't want to live in one because they are filled with carcinogenics, as well you are living in something that probably a quarter million people once passed through....no thanks

I would think as a former Mechanic he would be aware and have had that type of thing removed. In fact, wouldn't that be required before it could be zoned as a home? (Wonder what the property taxes are like on that)

Yea I agree, he knows what he is doing but I wouldn't touch it. He has done an awesome job of that DC8 I will give him that. The pad he is building underneath looks cool too. 

 

The other one are those shipping container homes, you never know what was shipped in them either as they may have had toxic substances or chemicals in them at one time. They would have to be stripped down and floor boards removed and preferably sandblasted before being safe for habitat. I do like the concept of shipping container homes but some people don't strip them down well enough.

 

I live in a Lockwood Home made out of solid New Zealand Pine, 8" X 2" horizontal beams. Beautiful home to live in around all that wood. I've had 6.2 earthquakes and the home absorbs it with no damage as it is supported by its own weight and designed to sway, It is as safe as driving a Volvo car. Even a fire would be contained as the wood is so dense it doesn't burn as easily as wood framed homes which spread quicker. Usually with a fire you loose a few beams before you get it out and they can be replaced.

In his house, gas masks fall from the ceiling if there's a fire.  :Tounge:
