Nottingham lad spends £2.5k transforming shed into British Airways Boeing 777 replica - and he's still not done

Buckle up and prepare for take-off. An avid aviation lover from Nottingham has splashed out a staggering £2,500 to transform his bog standard garden shed into a replica of a British Airways plane cabin.

Billy Gilmour, 20, bought parts of the BA Boeing 777 after the passenger jet was retired back in 2020, and has been spending the last three years perfecting his unusual makeover. His purchases include a row of three seats and windows, a food trolley, a storage unit, and blue curtains.

He's also stuck the BA logo on the wall, so you'll truly feel like you're jetting off in style.

The hotel worker, who studied engineering at college, has no regrets about splashing out thousands on the shed - saying it's 'worth it'.

"This is incredibly dull," Gilmour joked. "I had a spare shed in my garden at home. I am very big into aviation, so I decided to make a mock-up of an aircraft cabin. I started building this in January of 2021.

“I am still adding to the cabin. All the parts used were removed from British Airways Boeing 777. The estimated cost of it all including the trolleys, seats and parts is around £2,500."
