An orbiting luxury hotel is constructed in orbit from pod/habitats for work crews. The habitat areas stand off
from the nascent horbitel with a large coiled spring which flexes, yet keeps the habs away from the main structure. Cables mounted along the sides of the coil carry small cars to and from the work site. Another spring is temporarily mounted along the habitat connection tubes and to it are attached atmospheric re-entry stabilizing wings for pods returning to Earth. At this stage of construcion the horbitel is not rotating, but when ready spin will be applied and access will be via the four airlocks on the outside of the non-rotating torus atop the structure.
