It's bigger than a lot of New York apartments

In a move that feels straight out of a Zach Braff movie, a former electrical engineer named Bruce Campbell decided to take a Boeing 727 and convert it into his home.

It all began when Campbell spent $23,000 for 10 acres of land in the Oregon woods, Reuters reports. He originally planned to make a home from freight vans, but then decided to up the stakes and use a jet instead. So he spent about $220,000 to purchase an aircraft and convert it into a home, where he now spends six months of the year.

Though the home is fully-functional, Campbell does not live lavishly. He sleeps on a futon, cooks with a microwave or toaster and bathes in a makeshift shower, Reuters explains. But still, he’s living ON A JET.

Here are some pictures of the interior:
