The transformation of the old "Boeing" in a cozy house over the lakePictolic
A quarter century ago, American Joe Ann Asseri bought a decommissioned aircraft "Boeing-727". It took her many months, wild imagination and tens of thousands of dollars to turn it into a luxury Villa on the lake. But the result was worth it!
Three bedrooms, kitchen, equipped with the latest technology, and in the cockpit — a real Jacuzzi: welcome on Board of "Boeing-727", which the imagination of its owner turned into a posh residential house.
Friends call Jo Ann Assery of has been, Mississippi, "little tramp". She, like the President of the United States, too, has its own "Boeing-727". However, in contrast to the presidential, it does not fly. Jo Ann bought it in 1994, set on the lake and spent a lot of years to make it a perfect residential home.
The aircraft was rebuilt almost entirely, preserved only perfectly working original the toilet and the Luggage boxes at the top of the cabin, which previously was located above the seats: they are Jo Ann is used as mezzanines.
As said by the owner of the aircraft-villas, until 1994, she lived in the trailer, but after it was almost destroyed by the ice storm, she decided to buy a bigger dwelling. Decommissioned aircraft as the time approached.
"Boeing-727" with the hull number 19510 was the first machine of this model purchased by Continental Airlines. He was performing a passenger flight from 1968 to 1993. In 1994 it was put up for sale and immediately purchased a 52-year-old hairdresser from Mississippi.
In recognition of Jo Ann, the remake of "Boeing" has cost her tens of thousands of dollars, but she does not regret nor spent a single cent since then as a year after purchase, in 1995, moved to their home plane.
For aircraft Jo Anne paid 2 thousand dollars. However, shipping it to the destination I had to pay another 4 thousand.
According to Ann, for a remake of the interior of the plane she paid approximately $ 25,000. But most of the work she performed herself.
A hairdresser from Mississippi alone lay new floors in the salon, threw the wiring and plumbing and even held the house phone line.
The width of the salon of "Boeing-727" — more than four meters, it is enough to stay comfortably. 76 passenger Windows and 10 Windows in the cockpit make the room bright and Sunny.
Grandchildren Jo-Anne, Steven, Kathleen and Morgan, I love to be in the country at grandma's and play pilots sitting in the bath! The handlebars near the baths — the most real, in the course of repair Jo Anne have kept them for the sake of the original design.
The plane was set over the lake, to the feeling that he was going to take off. Besides, stepping over the threshold, Joe Ann can instantly turn from a captain at the captain of the boat!
