The outbuilding was used as a water tower but currently has an office downstairs and an unfinished room upstairs, each room is approx. 150 sq. ft.; not included in square footage of home. The barn is made of redwood and houses a garage, carport, large workshop (could be a 2 car garage and is approx. 550 sq. ft.) and stairs leading to a 2nd story unfinished room, about 900 sq. ft., which was used to host youth group gatherings.
