I’ve started work on the main centerpiece of Autumn, Virginia – City Hall. I designed this building in the Second Empire french architectural style, common for the 19th century when this building was “built.”

I’m constructing this building with extreme detail down to light fixtures and window panes so it will be a long project with headaches, I’m sure. Still, it’s worth doing, and I’m looking forward to it.

I modeled an early version of the building using the BoolTool in Blender before drawing the elevation so I could have something to work from. I’ll post some of those images later.

Here, though, is my current progress on the building so far, still considered the block in stage. I’d like to get the main parts in so I can see if I need to do any major changes. The back half of the building is not done yet. Once I have the blocking in done, I’m going to lay out the rooms. I want this to be as functional a building as possible since I’m always striving towards realism in my work. I added some simple lights inside just to give it a little life during the construction process. Thanks everyone!
