well, i think i have finally settled on the design of the second story of the tower.....i tried some different looks, but i think i am going with this one. i decided to give each section it's own look, taking that idea from real houses from the past. now i have to come up with something for the first floor, but i have something in mind. i love this siding, the way it goes on, the way it looks, i really, really like it!!!!!!
