Just curious , why do you drill the holes? I just cut out the lines and the windows fall out , again just curious.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Same here, I do put masking tape on the backside of the cut to help stop the wood from splitting

Andy & Janbouli...You both read my mind...the first piece I had split right in half when cutting started, the aged clapboard was purchased a long time ago and has been in storage for way too long...so the drill was used to relieve some stress in the piece and the second try piece did not fracture in half...

Taping the back of the wood to prevent splitting is a good trick.  I remember learning it years and years ago from my first Campbell kit (which still has a place of honor on my layout, although it needs to be refurbished after a bunch of moves and a bucket of water dumped on it :-) )

I found some of the NESL milled wood car parts for my scratchbuilt boxcars.  One had a price on it, $.39 (from 1981), that same part is now over $7!

Dave,
 The wood that was used was dried up from being stored in a Texas garage....pulling off the tape....even very slow....the wood split.....so I went with the drill bit thing, and opened up everything....and that worked on my second try...

Tommy, great tip.  My wood hasn't been in Texas, but it's old enough to be substantially dried out.

 Let's layout the openings for the larger windows ... making 3 holes for each future window location with a sharp drill...do not press hard...just a few seconds for each hole...this removes almost half of the wood for each opening. The piece of wood behind the wall prevents me from drilling into the old dining room table in the basement and getting yelled at.... ::)

Looking good! So Tom, is the left side of the building angled out more than 90 degrees?- looks like it in the photo....

Tom,

You're doing a great job on the windows. I'm looking forward to more progress.

Tom ;D

Bob,

The left wall is angled but not sure of the degree. Here is the best photo I have of the side in question. You can see it is definitely at an angle.

Hope this helps.
