When first examining the site Hertz realized that the airplane’s wings would fit on the existing pads, while the low profile of the wings allowed them to be integrated into the ridge top. In this way the wings would appear to float above the ground.

The main part of the house uses only the recycled wings of the plane, while the rest of the complex was built from the remaining parts of the 747’s fuselage. An art studio building has a roof made from 50 ft. long section of the upper fuselage. The remaining front part of the fuselage and the upper first class cabin deck is used as the roof of a guesthouse. The roof of the barn is made from the lower half of the fuselage. The complex also features a meditation pavilion, which is made from the entire front of the airplane and measures 28 ft. in diameter and is 45 ft. tall, while the cockpit windows make up the skylight.
