Today Dezeen features Malibu's Wing House, the David Hertz-designed house made out of a decommissioned 747 jet. The last time we saw the house, it was getting close to done, and now it's taxied all the way to its gate. The house was finished a few months ago, and more than just the wings of the airplane went in to the structure--it also includes fuselage, first class deck, and cockpit windows (the architects likened it to Native Americans using every part of a buffalo). The house is registered with the Federal Aviation Administration so that pilots flying over don't think they've spotted a crash.
