Shop, Utility Building & Basketball Court

The Utility Building is ~160 sq. ft. with 12 ft. vaulted ceiling. The structure follows a concept featured in an article entitled Shipshape Potting Shed in the June 1998 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. The siding is made of cedar and its structure is defined as utilitarian on concrete slab with an authentic Spanish slate roof with copper. It is situated near the half-court basketball court and the Shop. The building houses the landscape tools and supplies in an unfinished interior and is already waiting on the arrival of the Shop Doors which were ordered from an online local provider.
