In my area, my agent (State Farm) defines anything on the property as
long as it is associated with the lives of the people living there as an
accessory structure. After all, would you exclude a garage just because
it was not physically connected. Anyway, State Farm paid full
replacement cost for a lightning claim on my tower 190 feet from the
house a couple of years ago. I'm sure there are state-to-state variations.
