No Place Like It

The first home to be completed under a $170 million housing upgrade project at Fairchild AFB, Wash., west of Spokane, was turned over to an Air Force family Wednesday during a ceremony. The Associated Press reported yesterday (via the Seattle Post Intelligencer) that the family will move into the three-bedroom home later this month. It is one of 81 new homes planned for construction at Fairchild over the next five years. The Air Force is also having 560 existing houses at Fairchild renovated and is converting 108 duplexes into single-family units, according to AP.
