Garfield Window Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I am just starting the Garfield house. Can the window upgrade package still be purchased anywhere?

I have been making new doors and windows from scratch for my builds lately.

They were made by Timberbrook Miniatures . Sometimes a package comes up on eBay. You are probably going to have to buy windows from some other manufacturer and adjust for wall depth.

They are hard to find. Search ebay or etsy and craigslist and keep your fingers crossed.

Or as Carrie said - cut/adjust the openings and use whatever is on the market. There are some nice options out there.

I was not aware that there ever was a window upgrade package available for the Garfield.  When I built my Garfield, I decided to change out all of the windows and doors to working ones.  I took an inventory, did a lot of measuring and then ordered the windows through miniatures.com.  I did have to cut out the openings and make adjustments so that the new working windows would fit.  I even added dormer windows in the attic to allow more light in.  All the windows/doors came unfinished so I stained them all.   Many doors I did make from scratch and pin-hinged them as I could not quite match the doors available at miniature sites that would fit some of the smaller door openings.   Many doors, however, I was able to order online and it was all worth the extra effort.   If you look at my gallery you can see how I dealt with this.

Good luck on your Garfield build.  It's truly a wonderful Victorian dollhouse!

Susan, I think the Timberbrook replacement windows for the Pierce would also have worked for the Garfield.
