Real Estate will sell at 1 PM


Front - facing north.  

East wall with walk door -- the east fence is technically the west boundary of an alley between the shop lots and the vacant lots to the east which are 30 x 120. 

Interior of the main shop.  The balcony is 12 feet deep.  

Well built with trusses.

Main building with sliding doors, walk door on the east side. 

Looking down Main Street to the west.  The shop sets on the two 50 x 150 lots and the crawler tractors are setting on the vacant 30 x 120 foot lots.  

Note the orientation of the lots.  The lots the shop sets on are 50 feet deep from Main Street so there is a total depth of 100 feet to the south of the edge of Main Street.  The lots are 150 feet long so from the fence east of the shop to the fence west of the shop is 150 feet.  The combination makes the lot 150 feet east to west and 100 feet north to south.  

There is a 20 foot wide alley between the east boundary of the 50 x 150 lots and the west boundary of the two 30 x 120 foot lots.  This cannot be built on.  

Electrical service, wired and lighted in both sides of the buildings 

Steel walk door into the west storage area.  

Back or south wall.  

Interior of the west storage addition

A copy of the original plat of Gilman.  Main street runs east and west.  The 50 x 150 lots actually front on the street to the west as well as main street.  Washington, the street to the west side, is for all purposes abandoned - as is the alley between the west lots and the east lots.  However, the boundary remains in effect and no buildings can be erected on the alley or streets.

It will be the buyer's responsibility to do final cleanup from the prior occupancy and the June 11th auction of any remaining items on the property at the time of closing and possession although the seller will do the major cleanup after the auction.
