When we visited Tucson in January, 2000, we purchased a home in the Santa Catalina Foothills from our good friend, Hoot Gibson. The views of the Santa Catalina Mountains were magnificent. The first slideshow shows you the home prior to us moving in. The second slideshow shows the renovations we made.

Although our home was very comfortable and in a nice part of Tucson, we found there were not enough amenities available for Frances and us. I had to travel 20 miles to play softball and Jean had to travel 10 miles for Frances to play cards. The fitness center was 11 miles away.
While playing softball with a Tucson team, I learned players were needed for the SaddleBrooke team. We learned SaddleBrooke was 55+ community in the northwest part of Tucson. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to play with the SaddleBrooke Mustangs in the 2000-2001 season. During that time my teammates encouraged me to visit SaddleBrooke. Jean, France, and I visited and were very impressed.
had to Jean and I signed the contract to construct our SaddleBrooke home on May 22, 2001. Since we had rented a home in SaddleBrooke, I was able to take pictures of the construction on a daily basis. If you ever wondered how a home was built, the second slide show will give you a good idea.
Our model was a Cheyenne and the address is 37637 South Terrace Park Drive, Tucson, AZ 85739.
