I am tracing and repairing existing traces of warehouses in an industrial district. 

Many of the warehouses have large (3-6m) roofs over the loading dock gates, making the building appear bigger. 

here is an example.

if I am mapping this kind of warehouses, which should I:

- map the whole structure as a warehouse

- map on the building portion as a warehouse (as I have done)

- map the building as a warehouse and map an attached polygon as the roof (which I haven’t done yet). 

I am going to spend the time cleaning up UltimaSnorlax’s bad polygons, I might a well draw them correctly the first time.
