When the concept behind Wing House, a luxury home in Malibu built from the remnants of a retired Boeing 747 jumbo jet, surfaced a few years back most folks who got wind of the audacious project had a standard “yeah, right, I’d like to see that happen” type of reaction. Well, what do you know … Wing House is happening with construction underway and set to be completed by the end of this year.
The Main Residence will use both of the main wings as well as the 2 stabilizers from the tail section as a roof for the Master Bedroom. The Art Studio Building will use a 50-foot long section of the upper fuselage as a roof, while the remaining front portion of the fuselage and upper first class cabin deck will be used as the roof of the Guest House. The lower half of the fuselage, which forms the cargo hold, will form the roof of the Animal Barn. A Meditation Pavilion will be made from the entire front of the airplane at 28 feet in diameter and 45 feet tall; the cockpit windows will form a skylight. Several other components are contemplated for use in a sublime manner, which include a fire pit and water element constructed out of the engine cowling.
