O'Kane's role, as a saloon keeper, hotelier, and builder suited him perfectly. He regaled his guests with colorful stories of his past adventures ad exploits. By the time his masterpiece was completed, O'Kane weighed three hundred pounds, and spent his afternoons sleeping in a chair propped against the building.
