aller tout en bas

Good evening,

Already some threads about it but I’m not sure after reading them I came up with what I was looking for.

A toddler is trying to build up a tower with wooden blocks. From their different sizes stems a specific order you have to follow to keep the tower balanced.
As he places the biggest block on a smaller one, how would you say that the biggest one must remain at the tower base ? For those who speak French that would be « non non, celui-là il va tout en bas »

My attempts :
1. No, this one goes at the very bottom of the tower
2. No, this one goes all the way down of the tower
3. Anything else maybe ?

Thank you so much for your help,

CB

    1. No, this one goes at the very bottom of the tower :tick:
    2. No, this one goes all the way down of the tower :cross: (no such thing as down of)

    Thanks SwissPete !

    About number 2, « All the way down to the bottom » would be correct ?

    Edit : as I checked what I wrote in the first place about number 1, wouldn’t it rather be « this one goes to the very bottom » ?
