A Vision At A Young Age


Bruce Campbell is a 64-year-old retired electrical engineer. Since he was young, he was always known for his creative vision. When he was in his early 20s, he bought a 10-acre plot of land for $23,000 in the forest of Hillsboro, Oregon. Campbell also had a unique vision for what he wanted to do with the property.

His plan was to construct a home out of numerous freight vans. Initially, Campbell was thrilled with his idea until he learned about another house that someone had built. This led him to change his mind.
