Be careful putting just any light on it. If you do it, you may have to use 
"official" lights, as in expensive,  alarms, and register with the FAA.
Of the few I took care of, the alarm would go off at 3am, there was an FAA 800 
number to call and give the FAA registration number.
Half the time the guy would ask "where's that, it's not on record".... Been 
there for twenty years and it's your number ??

I don't think anyone has mentioned it yet, Bill but I think due to the 
barren landscape surrounding the strip, pilots are using your house to 
help line up for final.  It's a great navaid for them but may be 
problematic for both of you when the tower goes up.  When it's all said 
and done, you'll no-doubt get your tower up with the FAA's blessing but 
you may light it for some piece of mind.

Keep us updated.
