I did a quick scale of the building based on the Sanborn map. 

And it appears to be 25 by 42, 
with a 10 by 10 on the end, 
and 8 by 16 addition on the back, about 7-8 ft from the end. 

Assuming the drawing was actually to scale. 

I think the corrugated roof is a better way to scale it. 
And that would save some precious layout space. 

And photos don't lie, 
at least not 100 years ago !

I personally like to make a quick mock-up

to see how it fits in my scene.
