                  A facility of either non-combustible or fire resistive        
                  construction designed for a fixed location with a life

                  A facility usually of wood frame type construction and        
                  other buildings viewed as temporary because of                
                  location, construction cost, construction type,               
                  suitability for function or plans to discontinue their        
                  use at the earliest convenience.

                  A temporary facility which is not permanently fastened        
                  to the ground and designed so it can be readily moved         
                  to a new location either in one piece or components.

                  for non-farm facilities.  These facilities are usually        
                  of light frame construction with unfinished interiors
