Building #225 - Paint House

Used to store paint. You might ask why they needed a separate building just for paint. The reason is paint is highly flamable. If it caught fire, it would be better to just lose the paint and not also all your other stores.

Like most other buildings on the post, it suffers from deferred maintenance and could use a good coat of paint itself.

2008 update: The building has received a fresh coat of white paint.
