You must have us confused with somewhere else. The north end of the runway ends with a drainage swale and then a field full of cattle and a few wildly braying donkeys. Biggest danger off the North end (if you clear the fence) is cows munching on your fabric or fiberglass. RVs are much safer here.I flew there some back in the early days; when the tower was erected just off the north end of the runway.

CRE is where we were looking. We've elected not to continue looking there, unfortunately, and will do a hangar at 2W6.Chesapeake Ranch Estates?
Many moons ago, I built a few of the hangars, additions and such in there.
Good people and active EAA.
I believe I know which house. Built the shade port next to it.
Best of luck.
Bought a lot with a hangar and built a nice house and a shop/office in the hangar at 0TX6 Elm Creek Airpark just south of Seguin, TX, about 35 miles east of San Antonio. Big difference from where we were living in Houston. Love it and never looked back.Just drank the Kool-aid and signed closing docs on empty lot at 61AR.
Cant wait to get building next year I hope.
We just built a new house in an airpark adjacent to an airport. We'd lived in neighborhoods with HOAs before, and, due generally to the kind of stuff you mentioned, swore we would never do that again. But there's only 15 lots here, so we were thinking 'cozy atmosphere'. Everybody seemed friendly, we liked the location, and let's face it, having a hangar in your back yard is just great! We discovered the Napoleon types after making plans for the house. I was determined to go elsewhere but the wife didn't want to start looking again. Later she realized that may have been a mistake. We even discussed putting our house on the market after it was finished. Two of our neighbors won't talk to us since we refused to cave to HOA demands over requirements that don't exist, but the rest of them are still quite nice, at least to our faces. Things have calmed down and we've settled into a routine, so there's little strife to speak of, at least for now. I think they're learning to tolerate us just as we're learning to tolerate the HOA.It’s an HOA, you need to seriously look at it. I’ve only had one experience with an HOA and it wasn’t good. There is ALWAYS someone that is nitpicking and wants to be in your business just for the power of it. HOA elects the positions but average-live-and-let-live types don’t run. It’s always the little Napoleon types that run. Those people many times outweigh the few people that you’re trying to protect your neighborhood from.
