First Floor and foundation

The first floor was reinforced using braces. We glued the braces to the base and columns. (2 braces for each column).  Second floor was just constructed using some sticks and members were formed. Each member consists of 2 sticks taped together. The second floor was also reinforced using braces. The braces were used to strengthen the joint between the members and the centre pillar.  The third was also constructed similar to the second floor. But no reinforcements were made due to lack of time. Hence we finished the tower by constructing the rooftop. The rooftop uses a truss system which also includes a cross member. This helps to distribute the force evenly.
