And now for something different. It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s My Home! - Insect-proof, fireproof, and able to withstand 575 mph winds, this Boeing 727 features more than 1,000 square feet of living area, and there are plenty of storage solutions in the cargo hold and in the overhead compartments. The jet body cost about $ 100,000 (without engines). Moving the decommissioned jet to its final resting place and outfitting it for living cost another $ 100,000.
