I have some foam that has been whispering to me to free the corner ruins trapped inside. I may mark a few of these pix on my phone as lintel and shutter references.

Nice! What type of material is it based on? I am looking for something that doesn't warp.

It has a 1/8 inch plywood base.
Nail the 1/8 ply to a piece of 3/4 inch plywood. Set the nails halfway for easy removal.

Now the base is nice and flat. Cut and glue your walls to the base.
The building is basically a box glued to a flat base , no warping.

When dry pull the nails, trim your base with a knife as needed for wall edge or rubble.
