Looks great! Using Arch WB?
Thanks, I did use the Arch WB for the windows and doors but I didn't model it as I might have done an actual building, instead I modeled it more like something that would be 3D printed. I did count concrete blocks from photos in order to get some rough dimensions though (each concrete block with one mortar joint being 8" high x 16" long and I just fudged the walls as being 8" thick). There isn't anything inside except one wall that runs from side to side - here's a view from the bottom minus the floor slab:

very cool model! Too bad you can't share the file, it would be a kind of cool "FreeCAD mascot" or something
Glad you like it! This particular version of the model with the FreeCAD logos might have been a kind of a preliminary study or something like that but I'm not entirely sure. I've been wanting to make a similarly simple model of something like the Blue Dome (old Gulf gasoline filling / service station) in Tulsa, Oklahoma for a while:
and another streamline style diner in Albuqureque, New Mexico:
there's also another particular old building along old Route 66 that caught my eye, I'll have to find it.
