Hotel, Law Office & Jail, and Dry Goods

Another productive streak. My father was a carpenter at one time, and I must have inherited the genes unknowingly. I’ve completed three more buildings for the town of Assumption.

Here we have the new hotel. I threw some curtains in the windows. A touch of class for the weary traveller.

The back view. I imagine that it looks in on the Hotel Owner’s private room.

Assumption County Law Office and Jail. Although both buildings share a common front…

…I’ve constructed them as two separate buildings; a wooden office and a brick jailhouse.

Another view of the jail.

I think this will be a Dry Goods or a Hardware Store.

Nothing too fancy on the back.

So the old town is really starting to grow. I have the pieces cut out to build a restaurant with an attached kitchen. I’ve also built a small vegetable garden (or kitchen garden) which I forgot to photograph.

What’s next you ask. Here’s a list in no particular order:

  • a couple of small, fenced back yards
  • a gallows or more likely a “hangin tree”
  • a couple of piles of fire wood or lumber (or both)
  • barrels, piles of crates, and other clutter
  • a few small bases of rocks and small boulders

I may stop there for now and get everything painted. Ideally, I would like to build a few more buildings in the near future – another couple of merchants, and a few simple homes that could be used in other non-town scenarios (i.e. ranches, farmsteads, work camps, etc…)

Thanks for reading,
