  1. Enter edit mode
  2. Hit Ctrl-R to make a loop cut across the mesh.
  3. Repeat in other direction
  4. Select face and extrude it upwards(E-Z)

  • $\begingroup$ @pluke You can use either licecap (@gandalf3's suggestion) or gifcam cegton's suggestion. I used keypose for the shortcuts. $\endgroup$ Feb 9, 2015 at 21:22

In Edit Mode select the upper face and snap the cursor to it (press Shift+S-->Cursor to Selected). enter image description here

Press E to extrude and then S to scale the extrusion. Confirm the operation with Enter. enter image description here

Extrude once more along z axis. Press E, then Z and confirm the transformation. enter image description here

Now select the whole extruded element and place it wherever you like, using G and choosing the axis you like. enter image description here

And here it is. enter image description here

If you do not want to mess with the topology of the lower part of the building, you can build them separately, select both, and join them with Ctrl+J.

Join Meshes

Another option is to select the top face and duplicated it with Shift+D.

Duplicate

You will then be able to edit the different parts with complete flexibility, with no fear of ruining your work on the other parts of the building.
