If you think you’ve seen the craziest converted homes out there, think again. This couple has successfully transformed a search-and-rescue helicopter into a cozy tiny house.

The couple, Martin and Louise Steedman, began the project after they won the helicopter in an online auction.

Stirling farmer Martyn Steedman looks out from the cockpit from the retired Sea King helicopter which has returned to active service, this time as ScotlandÕs most unusual place to stay, a holiday home at Mains Farm Wigwams, situated on the outskirts of the village of Thornhill near Stirling.

As soon as the helicopter made its way to their door, they got to work. Somehow, they managed to maintain the original design of the outside of the helicopter while completely transforming the inside into a fantastic vacation home.

The helicopter is a huge Sea King ZA127, which became retired in 1994. After that time, the British Navy used it for training purposes until 2002. Now, it is getting a new lease on life with this amazing transformation.

The couple left the original dashboard alone as well as the foot pedals. This adds to its charm and helps keep the original concept in mind. However, the pilots’ chairs are now swivel chairs and there is a small table nearby.

When you walk through the rest of the helicopter, you won’t see any remnants of the days when it soared through the air. Instead, you will find a fully functional kitchen, three beds, a fully functional bathroom and even a sliding glass door.
