I went out this morning and took a bunch of pictures of housing. Previously I posted about the Shadow Mountain Housing. These pictures are of Joshua Heights. When we were first moving here, we were told that the housing was being used for everyone, as people were being moved out of housing that was being renovated or torn down or what not. I “heard” from people living there that they had all ranks, including officers, living around them.
When we moved here last May, housing told us it was for E-6 to E-9. We did not have an option for this housing as the next 5 available houses were all in Shadow Mountain. Recently a friend that lives there told me that they are now offering these to E-4 and E-5’s as reenlistment incentives. When I called housing last week to ask where an E-5 with 2 children would live, I was given Joshua Heights as one of the areas.
What will it be for when you move here??? Who knows! I recommend calling housing, give them your stats, and let them tell you what housing you’re eligible for!
Joshua Heights houses are big. They are the largest on base. The stats I was given when we were moving here was 1600 sq ft, not including closets, stairs, or garage! The garages are all 2-car..decent space. Lots of storage inside, good sized closets. The kitchen isn’t real big but is nice, and there is a large pantry area on the side of the kitchen. There is a “loft” area at the top of the stairs that has a built-in desk. Super nice. All the landscaping is desert. Which means rocks. There are small backyards that are fenced already…rocks in the backyard.
Unlike Shadow Mountain, I’m told they don’t have an issue with flies over there. However, they do get a lot of pigeons and one can often see pigeon doo-doo on the roofs. There are a few covered playgrounds. Very nice. There is a community pool and clubhouse just before you enter Joshua Heights. It’s convenient to the commissary and hospital. Really, all the housing is convenient to everywhere..but those are even closer. LOL
Before we moved here, we were really hoping for Joshua Heights. Big houses, more storages, 2-car garages, not as many cars in the street due to 2 parking spaces in the driveway, close to pool, etc. We’re content with what we got and I’m glad to have a one-story. If you get Joshua Heights, I would think you’d be really pleased with your house!
And now on to the pictures…they are duplexes. Most are 2-story. There are 3 and 4 bedrooms units.
There are not many 1-story units and they are reserved for those in the EMFP program in which one requires a one-story.
Back of the house with the “yard.”
Some of the units are situated sideways to each other when there is a curve in the road. Here is the unit on the left.
And the unit on the right. The sideways ones have long driveways!
