Hillsboro-Oregon

9

Engineer Bruce Campbell purchased a retired Boeing 727 and, over the course of many years, transformed it into a fully functional home tucked away on his property in the woods of Hillsboro, Oregon. It took him many years to complete the project, but Campbell’s fantastic houseplane now features electricity throughout, a bathroom, shower and a kitchen.

"Want your own airplane home? “You need to acquire two things: An airliner, and suitable land to host it.” Well, it may not be quite that simple but Campbell has a how-to guide on his webpage to shed light on the process. According to the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA) there will be 500 – 600 aircrafts retired annually over the next two decades. That’s 10,000 – 12,000 potentially new aircraft homes coming on the market. Better start making plans now!”

Hillsboro Library | Hillsboro, Oregon Spring 2014

“We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth.”  

 John Lubbock, The Pleasures of Life

The Hillsboro library is one of the best libraries I have ever been to. The city really took their time and planned out a beautiful landscape. The building and the grounds are beautiful. It really motivates you to go to the library. I am proud of my home-town and how it’s developing. I used to doubt it but now I’m glad that I live here. Our airport is also right next to it, so while you’re reading you can watch the planes take off and land. A very beautiful paradise that is simple walk from where I live.
