These are the houses that are in the Shadow Mountain housing area (where I live). I’m going to try and remember to take pictures of the other housing areas also. I know that they’re switching around which housing is for certain ranks and I’ll try to post that information also.
In the meantime, here is SM..it’s for E-6 to E-9, children or none, they are 3 and 4 bedroom units. They all have grass backyards, but only some are fenced in. You can fence in yours if you want, but then you have to mow it yourself. 🙂
This is a 4 bedroom, one-story. The five-bedrooms look the same…they are a little wider. There are only 10 5-bedroom units so the wait is long. Most of the 4-bedroom units on base are 2 stories, we just happened to be one of the lucky ones that got a one-story. 😉
This is another 4-bedroom unit. Notice there are 2 windows in the front..one is the master bedroom. Then there are 2 bedrooms on the backside. If you get this style in a 3-bedroom, then there is just one window in the front and that is the master bedroom. It’s BIG with a nice sized closet. Not so much in the 4-bedroom.
And the last style of house is this. I took it from the side so you could see how the garage is in the front and the house is kind of behind it. The 3-bedroom looks the same, this one just happens to be a 4-bedroom. The kitchen/dining areas of all of these are very spacious. I’ve never seen such big kitchens in base housing!
And this is a 3-bedroom one story. You’ll notice in the 4-bedroom above that the garages are in the center…the units are joined at their kitchens/dining rooms. In the 3-bedroom, the garages are to the outside and the units are joined by their bedrooms.
Hope that helps give you an idea of what some of the 29 Palms Housing looks like. These are the older ones and there are lots of new ones, but there are some benefits to living in Shadow Mountain. First, we have grass. Course this means we get more flies but I do love having a backyard with GRASS in it. Second, we have the biggest kitchens on base. If this is important to you, then you’ll like Shadow Mountain. Third, we have trees. There are trees in some other housing but not all of them. There are downsides too..we have little garages..and there are more cars parked on the street because of the one-car driveways. Also, you have to water your grass yourself if you want it green. And mow if you fence in your backyard.
