This Mendocino tankhouse was, without doubt, the gardener's utility shed. It had been painted yellow, as was the nearby two-story house. The casual garden was lush with flowers. The garden hose was carefully draped over a wooden peg and the door was standing open and ready. Access to the upper tank area appeared to be through the floor trapdoor accessed by an outside ladder. The view of the Pacific Ocean from the upper area was probably stunning.
