TikToker turns Boeing 777 into dream home

For most people, their idea of a dream home is a mansion in the suburbs or even a rural retreat.

Not for one TikToker, though.

She bought a decommissioned Boeing 777 to turn into her dream home.

Carly Cary purchased the old Etihad Airways aircraft in 2020 and began an ambitious project to “give it a new life.”

And in true fashion, the TikToker has been sharing her journey of transforming the Boeing aircraft, with her followers amazed at the progress she’s making.

So far she’s managed to remove the passenger seats, toilets and part of the cockpit, in order to make her renovation dream a reality.

To be fair, Cary isn’t the first person to convert a retired plane into a dream home.

We’ve seen a Boeing 737 turned into an ultra-expensive private villa and even an old Boeing 727 converted into a home in the middle of the woods.

In one video posted to her account, the TikToker shows followers a glimpse inside the Boeing 777, moving between first class, business class, economy plus, and economy.

“You can really see here the difference it makes without the overhead bins, it’s so much roomier,” she said.

But, in one of her most-viewed posts, Cary shows off a secret compartment most flyers have no idea exists.

In the video she takes viewers into the ‘crew rest room’.

“So crew rest is what you see in the orange, so normally this is covered by overhead binds and ceiling panels,” she said.

“And no one really knows it’s there. But flight attendants and crew members use this to sleep on really long flights.

“To get into the door it’s usually blocked by a keycode, but because this is a decommissioned plane and we can do whatever we want, we’ll just override that.

“Then you take out these steep stairs and you can see… there are bunks and seats and just kind of a relaxation area. Pretty cool.”

Cary was quick to warn her followers, though, reminding them not to enter the crew rest area.

“You’ll be detained and arrested. It could result in fines up to $250,000 and 20 years in prison.”
