The metal window frames are fitted to the house, with small metal nails.
As the front opening panel of the house is made from ply wood, the nails that are used to hold the frames in place are often bent over. I lifted the end of the bent nail gently with a thin blade, so I would’nt damage the wood. The bent part of the nail was then snipped off.
It was then easy to leaver the nail from the front. To be honest these windows had been removed before so the nails were quite loose.
The glass is held in place with small nails.
Frame with nails removed.
[Cheating here, added a bit of blu tac to hold glass together while taking the picture].
Glass removed, it was easier to removee the windows etc. in this order, as the nails holding in the glass were quite difficult to remove
If this is the original glass, it has been cut very roughly, and quite dangerous for a childs toy. [Who ever lived in this house did not clean their windows very often.]
Windows and glass removed. I have labeled each one so they can go back in the same frame.
The window frames have now been stripped of old and new paint, taking them down to bare metal. Some have a slight bens in so I will gently tap them back into shape before painting.
