The hotel porch is painted and the roofing is on.
All that is left to do is put the railings on.

Here is the finished porch.

Looking great Ray.

I had no idea AC was invented that long ago.

The side of the hotel that faces the parking lot will have an entrance with a covered area to pull a car under for unloading and loading.
There needs to be a concrete pad with a sidewalk going up to the front of the building.
I cut a piece of plywood to fit this area.

This is coated with a layer of drywall joint compound to fill in the wood grain.

Once it is dry, I sanded it down smooth and scored lines in it for the brakes in the concrete.

The concrete pad is painted and mounted in place.

Laying out a block of wood for the steps.

Here's how the steps will fit to the building.

The steps are painted and the handrail is glued on.
There is a post up on the front corner of the sidewalk to keep cars from running up on the curb.

How in the world did you get the edge of the portico to look like that? Awesome!

That is made from trim pieces for a doll house.

The bottom part is baseboard that is turned upside down and glued to the side of the portico.

Then I glued a piece of cove molding on top of that.

Wow I may not be able to afford this hotel. Reckon I can get a discount from the builder? Maybe a secret room behind the bar?

This whole town is stuck in a time warp of 1949 so the dollar buys a lot more.
