Design Time

Now that we’ve moved out most of the debris and the structural engineer is deciding how to make the masonry earthquake resistant, it’s time to start designing again. Based on historically available colors, I’ve started experimenting with the hotel exterior. Note that having 3D modeling software is a big advantage for daydreamers like me.

I’ve also been toying with the saloon interior.

Compared to what it is today, it will be a vast improvement with very little change to the existing structure.
