This is what the tower looked like when I got started. Note the entirely missing panel on the left hand side of the picture and the half-destroyed panel on the right. The upper story of the tower was actually mostly being held together by the wallpaper.
My husband got me those clamps as a gag gift over a decade ago. Now I've actually discovered a use for them.
I was also able to repair the side porch. Which wasn't actually broken during the dropped shelf incident but rather was the result of some overenthusiastic playing when I was twelve.
I did up new support columns, reshingled the roof and gave the whole thing a fresh coat of white paint. Overall, I think it looks pretty nice.
