Re: What to do about ugly "tower" on house
"This house doesn't have a floor plan. It just sort of happened."
I'd suggest talking to an architect or home designer. Without knowing the floor plan, or seeing other angles of the house, we can't give much advice. Plus, it looks like the house may have had multiple additions over the years. Resurrecting the original charm may be difficult and expensive.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
