It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a… well, it does technically look like a plane, but it’s really a house.

According to the BBC, construction on the three-story house began in 1999. Jammal, who works in the construction industry, told the outlet it’s not a real plane converted into a house, but a concrete structure made to look like an airplane, complete with the green and white design of the Nigerian flag on one side of the tail, and a Lebanese cedar on the other.

The unusual-looking house is built on a complex that also includes a guest house, mosque, swimming pool, garden, lots of trees, and a covered car port/entry area.

Inside the house, there are several living rooms, bedrooms, and even a throne to sit on. Jammal even built a small model of the house that’s inside the home office.

One of Jammal’s children, Mohammed Jammal, told the BBC he was about 12 years old when the family began building the house. He added the children would help with the building every day after school — and that some work on the house is still ongoing, 11 years after it started.

The BBC also reports Jammal hopes the airplane home will be a legacy he can leave behind for the people of Nigeria — and that it can become a tourist attraction in Abuja.
