 Overview
 Description
The building itslef seemed very old. A thick layer of grime covered the cement floor and gaping holes could be seen in the roof, allowing water to drip through. Giant cedar logs had been piled under large plastic tarps, which collected alot of rainwater. The most exciting part of the structure was the oven like room near the back, which was very tall and built of really cool looking bricks. Although it was obvious the building was last used as a public parking garage, other objects within made me think about other purposes the building could have once had. The collection of metal gears and wheels that once sat in the south-east corner gave me the impression that the building once existed as a factory or mill.
