SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany (AFNEWS) -- A ribbon-cutting ceremony opened a new chapter in the living conditions for some of Spangdahlem Air Base's unaccompanied Airmen as new dormitories are the latest quality-of-life improvements here.

The $6.4 million dorm project comes equipped with controlled heating and ventilation systems, electric roll-ons, and personal basement storage cases. 

Airmen from seven squadrons have priority to move into the new rooms, coming from the oldest dorms built in 1953. The project started in 2005 and was completed in April.

"It's a clean new home. It's like a fresh start. They get their own living area. That's a huge quality-of-life improvement there. The private bathroom is the biggest excitement. That's the #1 thing the Airmen say they really love," said Master Sgt. Roderick Hubbard, the NCO in charge of project housing.

"They can cook a meal together. They can sit down and talk about the day's events," Sergeant Hubbard said. "It's really just going to be like having a small family right there with you."
