That doesn't look like a strongly built building at all. What's more, I'd like to know how that aircraft hit the building, there is rather little damage to the nose and the one prop blade isn't even bent. I don't think the engine was turning when it hit the building either.

If you don't gear up your brain before takeoff, you'll probably gear up your airplane on landing.
