Hey, I think I remember seeing that place on my way home from your house. I spotted several cool buildings on the way to your house. There is a cool building at the east end of the main drag in Coldwater that would be and ideal haunted house. It was for sale I wonder If I can Find a pic.

Good luck Jeff. A bussiness open to the public can be subject to different building codes. Check any remodeling you may have to do carefully. And if it turns out that was a old gas station, check if the storaget tanks are still there and if you are responsable for them. Fire codes can be another issue, exits, ect.
It sounds like a nice idea, but check all the possiblities first. Don't mean to be a wet blanket, but I dont want to see you get hurt either.

i agree with the gas station thing i have seen station shut down even tanks removed b/c of the gas that is sitting in the ground b.c of people locking the handle going in and shooting the crap for 20 minutes gas kept running out into ground makes a nightmare .....id call dhec and osha....osha has some very stiff minds if they say cool its most likely cool and dhec is is great for molds and asbestos between the 2 there your best friends before you buy but can be worst enemy after.

If everything checks out, it should be a nice place for ya. :)

Around here, if there is any house that is considered old, it is also considered a monument and has to be restored to previous glory if bought.

It's not classified as a "historical" home.

You know it Bill. It's just an old house, that has been zoned commercial in the last 10-15 yrs ago. I can remember a few of the shops that have been in the down stairs, last one being a realestate office.
