A California woman is building a house out of an old Boeing 747, using a wing for the roof and the nose for a "meditation temple." Francie Rehwald, whose family owns one of California's largest Mercedes-Benz dealerships, is building her dream home out of an airplane on her 55-acre plot of land in the Malibu hills. The plane materials themselves will cost around $100,000, while the total for the project is expected to be in the millions. Ms. Rehwald wanted her house to be feminine, friendly to the environment, and have curves, so naturally her architect, David Hertz, immediately thought "airplane." She had to check with the FAA before starting the project, and in order to get the government regulator's approval, she'll have to mark her home so it won't be mistaken as a downed plane from the air. Wouldn't that just be a sign of good architecture?
