Default Hi I'm new!!

Hi everyone, I've been asked to upgrade a dolls house for my granddaughter, its been in my son in law's family for a while. Ive started by taking the front off and the windows out. I was going to get new windows but they don't seem to be a standard size to get replacements? Any help through your advice or tips would be gratefully received. Ive attached a couple of pictures. Thanks in advance

welcome bonniebeau..i hope you enjoy the forum .. there are lots to look at and if you want anything in particular,type it in the search button above and other member's threads will come up for you to see and read about......if the windows you buy are too small and have gaps in the frames,add some strips of wood to pack it out..if a gap on the bottom add a balcony or window box to hide it....if too big,kitbashing is needed so have a go at making the aperture bigger with a junior hacksaw etc...nice style of house,have fun with it..don't let it scare you.....
goings on..

Is it a bought or a homemade hose if it's bought look on the back or underneath for a name and model no. once you know what it is you can often drop on windows or doors being sold on ebay for vintage houses.
