This is a side view of the center section of the front entrance showing how this part of the model will slide out with the cabinet.

The sides of the model shown will be made out of glass laminated with a transparent stone pattern.

The roof will also be made out of glass.

All the parts on this model are designed for cutting out of various hardwoods. This shows oak and walnut used for the rail and first level ceiling.

Roof truss, beams, and upper walkways will be made from oak.

These last three I put in to show the rest of the roof truss detail.

Thanks for viewing.
