Boeing Airplane House....

What a creative idea! Joanne Ussary bought a used Boeing 727. It's located in Benoit Mississippi on a lake. Joanne's front door is at the top of the plane's step,
The stairs open with a garage door remote.
You don't need a TSA pat down, ticket or passport when you visit. A personal invitation from Joanne works just fine. There are three bedrooms, a living room, a modern kitchen, one of the bathrooms is still intact and there is a luxury bathroom. There is a personal Jacuzzi in the cockpit with the bathtub under the windows. Next to this is Joanne's bedroom - in the first class section of the plane. Then there's the living room with four emergency exit doors, which she opens on summer evenings. On the wall there's a photo of the plane flying for Continental Airlines from Florida to the Caribbean. There are also four toilets, all with No Smoking signs.
"The plane is 27 years old and it's the best home in the world," says Joanne. "It has all the things you want in home: a telephone, air conditioning, an oven, a washing machine even a dish washer. It's always very warm, even in winter, and it's very big, 42 meters long! My grandchildren love running up and down. And my friends love parties here - but there aren't any flight attendant to serve their drinks!"
"Next time," she says, "I want a Boeing 747, not a 727, because they have an upstairs and a downstairs, and I want to go upstairs to bed"
She paid $2,000.00 for the plane. It cost $4,000.00 to move and $24,000.00 to renovate. (She has a LOT of wood and specialty windows for $24,000! But not bad for a $30,000.00 investment... She already owned the lake front lot.
