    Woman to build house out of 747

    Just what I need



    A California woman is going ahead with the construction of a house made of elements from a 747 Jumbo jet.

    Francie Rehwald wanted her house to look "feminine", have curves and be eco-friendly. Her architect's answer was: "Let's use a 747!"

    The wing of the Boeing jet will be used for the roof, its nose as a meditation temple while its trademark "bulge" will serve as a loft.

    The plane's parts were obtained from an aeroplane scrap yard in California.

    They cost around $100,000 (£56,000) to purchase, while the construction of the project, which is expected to start in June, is thought likely to cost several million dollars by the time it is completed.

    Ms Rehwald's family owns one of California's largest Mercedes-Benz dealerships.

    At least the turbines should give some boost to the house air-condition system

      And from the name of the post I thought it was an anniversary gift to one of Osama Bin Ladin's wives
