I'm having trouble extruding a part.

I have drawn an L-shape part and a taller tower that are supposed to make up one piece but it only lets me extrude part of the tower.

    Do you have a screen-shot, or a link to your document?
    It's hard to say what's wrong unless there is more information or we can see the feature's selections.

    A few wild guesses:
    Your sketch may have inferences from the face (it will appear as a light grey silhouette on your sketch)
    or multiple sections that are enclosed
    or your sketch may not be totally enclosed
    or your selected regions are wrong

    The first half of this GIF shows what I mean about inferences from the face, the last half shows a couple of methods to ignore the part's face.
