The housing at Andersen AFB has withstood numerous severe typhoons and a major earthquake. For this reason, you can feel safe in our housing. The houses are constructed of concrete block or concrete and may look somewhat different in design than what you are used to. Carpeting is also being installed during the change of occupancy maintenance.
All housing units have central air conditioning. Private window air conditioning units are not allowed in military family housing. Renovated and most unrenovated units have dishwashers installed. The electricity is a standard 110 volts, 60-cycle current.
LIMITED STORAGE SPACE: Housing units are equipped with refrigerators, electric stoves, washers, and dryers. Storage space is extremely limited. The housing units are smaller than what you are probably used to. Most of the housing does not have exterior storage for mowers, bicycle, etc. Some occupants have built a small storage shed in the carport area through a self-help project (Capehart). Metal storage sheds are prohibited due to typhoons. Bring only the furniture and items, which you feel you must have. Any excess will not be stored or returned to the states. You will not be assigned a larger housing unit because your personal furnishings are too large for the quarters. Do bring basic yard care items including a lawn mower and weed eater, if you already have them. Yard upkeep is stressed at Andersen AFB.
CARPORTS: All units in Capehart and Fleming Heights have carports. Roberts Terrace units do not have carports. Be sure to have your vehicle rust-proofed prior to shipping to Guam. The humidity here quickly rusts and corrodes metal.
