Step 6. Fitting the dormer front wall

First mark the size and shape of the dormer front wall onto a spare piece of MDF board.
Do this by holding a piece of 1/2" MDF board up against the front of the dormer and marking (with a pencil) the dormer opening (from inside the dormer) onto the piece of MDF board.
Then cut the triangular dormer front wall and mark, drill, and cut out the windows.

The procedure for cutting out the windows is the same for every window in the dollhouse, i.e. marking the center of the window, drilling through the center with a 1" drill bit, and then making the window square with a jigsaw.
