Los Angeles architect David Hertz built a house so stylish that it almost looks like it could fly. Almost, but not for the lack of wings.
You see, he built the house using parts from an old 747 airplane:
The 4,000-square-foot Wing House, as it has become known, is made from an old plane that was 230 feet long, 195 feet wide and 63 feet tall, but cost David barely nothing. The plane had enough raw materials — 4.5 million of them — to help build most of the entire home. And it seems as though Hertz knew exactly which parts of the plane to keep intact as architectural features. The main residence uses the wings and tail section as roofing elements. There’s also an art studio, guest house, and animal barn all made from the fuselage. A meditation pavilion was also created from the cockpit.
