General Information:

What does the Building look like?

From the outside the building looks more like a warehouse than an office.

It is one story high and very long.  The side of the building facing Wade Rd is a yellowish color, has no windows and has a couple of loading docks for trucks.  The opposite side of the building is a greenish color, has a high row of windows running the length of the building, and looks like it's built on a hill.
