Charleston AFB demolishing over 700 old houses

Image by Flickr user USACE Europe District The Charleston AFB will construct larger, modern houses to accommodate airmen and their families.

In an effort to privatize ts military housing, the Charleston Air Force Base plans to demolish at least 726 outdated homes and construct a minimum of 345 modern homes for airmen of all ranks and their families.

The 1960's era homes on the base have been renovated four times already, have no garage, and are very small.

"They have really reached their life expectancy," Charleston air base housing manager Stephen Campbell said Monday.

The Post and Courier has the post.
