There appears to be an error in your description of the size of the edifice. The the dimensions of the structure are given in ‘‘Square Feet’’ ''5000 square feet east to west and 4000 square feet north to south ‘’ (?)-------that is a total 9000 square feet which is roughly .2 acres. On the other hand if the structure is 5000 feet x 4000 feet that would be would be 20,000,000 square feet or nearly 500 acres.
