For those wanting the coolest home office or backyard shed, getting Aeropods could be the solution. This Irish company converts old planes into a unit that can be used for any purpose you like.
Many aviation types have dreamed of owning an old aircraft and living in it. Not many people do, because you need quite a bit of space, transport is very expensive and then there are conversion costs. A shame!
What Exactly Are Aeropods?
Judging from the Aeropods website, they have just completed their first pod. I’m sure some of you will be able to guess the airline that previously operated this aircraft!
Inside, the passenger windows remain, but otherwise it’s a blank space. A heating system – important living in Ireland – power points and lighting have been added, as well as doors.
The Aeropods are fully customisable and some of the ideas they have make sense. Things such as kids playrooms, bike shelters, meeting rooms and bars or even student accommodation have all been mooted.
I can tell you right now that if I actually owned any land, I would be contacting Aeropods for a quote. This is something that I would really love to own and use. Hell, maybe I can buy some land and get them to make two or three of them into a house!
Without a doubt they’d become a bit of a showpiece at your home, a real talking point. Hopefully the idea takes off and they become a success. It’s always good seeing things upcycled for another use. Now I’d love to know how much they cost… the Aeropods website has no mention of that.

Any idea of a price?
Wouldn’t have a clue. Can’t be extortionate, otherwise they’d price themselves out of the market. If you find out, let me know!
It’s a great idea and they look cool. Sort along the lines of shipping container homes.
Yes, that’s what they remind me of as well, but a little nicer. I do like the way the fuselage crown looks done up as an Aeropod.
