I have contacted the Mountain Home housing and got info, but I would really like to hear the opinions of 'real' people and what they think about it. What I would really like to know is which housing is nicest for E1-4 soldiers and their families or if there is a site that has more pictures of the housing besides what the Mountain Home has on their website. We will not be there for a while so I'm just doing some research. Any advice you have (besides the tons of snow that I should expect)would be appreciated.

Hello,
We are currently living in Rhicard Hills. I like it. We are a block or two from the community center. We have a nice size living room, big laundry room, and decent bathroom. The kitchen we have is small, not a lot of storage. The bedrooms are ok, they lean more towards small. But we fit our queen canopy bed, bog dresser with mirror, and another dresser, with a walk in closet. We live in the 4-plex type of home- bad part we live on the bottom- and the people above us are loud. Good part is we have a back yard. When we got here my hubby was an e-4, and we had no kids. The more kids the bigger the home. Every home there has a garage. If you want anymore info you can email me at miscellaneous03 at yahoo . Com Hope that helps.

Thank you so much. That was very helpful. The pictures don't really do any justice to size and space. Do all of the houses that you know of have central heat and air? I'm asking bc one of the pictures from the website had an air conditioner unit in a cut out of the wall. Thanks so much for your help!!
