Windows (2012-049)

I finally started working on MAKING the windows.  Of course, now I wish I designed the house to use standard off-the-shelf windows I could get at Home Depot.  But when I was designing, I thought it would be better to make simple windows myself and save some money.  Now I have SEVEN windows to MAKE, which will take so much time I don't want to think about it.  Yes, I will save some money.  Yes, the basic Home Depot windows only come in white, and I can paint the windows I make any color I like.  But now I am so eager to be done with the project, that I wish I could buy the Home Depot windows for the playhouse.  However, now it's too late.  I've committed to making my own custom windows, so I just have to do it.

My plan is to completely build up the first window, including the window sill, frame, and pane, so I know for sure how it all comes together.  Then I will build the remaining windows in parallel.

Here is the window sill and frame for the first window.
