The foundation is expected to be finished before the first frost this year and individual rooms are built as units in construction plants and transported, so winter won’t present much of an obstacle, according to Billy Coles, president of CCR Hospitality and BCP Construction. Coles said the hotel is expected to open in September 2017.

He said the company is lucky to have roughly 20 local investors and plenty of residents working on the project. Starting next week, some local companies will begin providing materials like rock and piping.
