Demolition started yesterday. Theoretically we'll be in the house around Thanksgiving.

How about some pictures.

I'll break these up into a few posts. We aren't doing anything significant to the exterior or back yard so I'll post those photos first. We will be adding an awning type structure to the front of the house, mostly to keep the afternoon sun and heat off the house, and we'll recycle many of the materials from the current carport that will be demolished and a three car garage with guest quarters will be added in it's location. The interior will be essentially gutted and everything redone. Most of the demo has been done but there is still old flooring to be removed and a bit of other things.

Boy, you didn’t waste any time! Really looks nice...I’m jealous!

That's just two days of work. The demo started Thursday. It took forever to close and then getting bids for the work took longer than expected. Once we selected a company, they couldn't start right away. Theoretically we'll be in the house right before Thanksgiving. We'll see . . .

Have you been flying in and out of the airport? Are you pretty close to the runway or is there a lot of taxiing?

My current house is 15 minutes to either AVQ or 57AZ. I bought a hangar near the fuel and runway at 57AZ but the guy I bought it from had a renter than I'm letting stay through the end of the month. Then I'll be out of town a while so I'll move my airplane to 57AZ the middle of October. I was based at 57AZ a number of years ago, right after they widened it to 44'.

The interior remodel is phase I. I want to pay cash for everything so it will be phased, After phase I, we'll move in and I'll put the house I've been in for the last 18 years on there market. Once it sells, we'll do phase II which is a garage and guest studio (we may be able to start phase II earlier). Then phase III, if there is a phase III, will be a hangar. Phase III is predicated on the roads in the airpark being redone to allow me easy taxi to the runway. It will be about a five minute taxi as I'm in the far northwest corner of the airpark, see map.

I flew out of 57AZ daily for 6 years. There is nothing to worry about. It is a pretty quiet airport.

Yep, plenty long and "there are no runways, only center lines" so even though my wingspan is 38' on a 44' wide runway, no issues. 

I've been based there twice in the past so I'm very familiar with it.

Do you need to be a resident to fly in there? You never know when I might venture in from Ohio to check things out.
