What if you could live inside an airplane? Well, one aviation enthusiast has actually made that possible. About four years ago, engineer Toshikazu Tsukii (or Ski as he is commonly known) took on the enormous project of building a guesthouse using parts of retired Boeing 707, 727, 737, 747 jets and military airplanes. Living in Arizona, he found a Boeing 707 fuselage at one of the boneyards near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Most of the parts he purchased were ready to be scrapped for recycling purposes.

With these parts, Ski found a way to convert them into a full-fledged house, along with pieces of furniture that decorate the inside. And this thing was built to last since it has protection against most natural disasters. The guesthouse sits in what is called an "aviator's paradise."

Tsukii holds a commercial pilot license and has an intense love for aviation, as his passionate work shows.
