In the front was the main house where the Main office was. I believe that would have been Dean Paterson's office at the time I went there. On the right side of the house was a breezeway to the courtyard where we did our marching I also believe there was a American flag in the center. Behind the courtyard was where the classrooms Basketball court &nbsp;and the dorms or sleeping area was. In the basement were the showers and locker-room. The back building was once a stable for keeping horses converted to the school.

My windows need to be replaced anyway throughout the condo, but my two kitchen windows in particular (which now look onto the wall) I'm wondering if I should brick over and just have a wall there. My thought is that while I'm here, at least I gain functional space. If/when I'm ready to sell, I would think the wall would be a better option too.
