This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've redone the whole set and added more windows and doors.

The new files will overwrite the old ones.

I like the style of the Maxis La Fenêtre windows but thought it needed some larger windows to complete it.

All the frames are linked to Maxis La Fenêtre Window, so you'll need to use it to recolor.

The door handles can now be recolored using the Lafenetre 1Tile Glass Door.

These files are BaseGame compatible.

If you like my creation or effort, please hit the THANKS button. It only takes a few seconds

My La Fenêtre Bay Window is available HERE.

Windkeeper has other windows for this set here at MTS2.

SIMALE - yes, but, I think, I would be copying Windkeepers work at TSR.

I really appreciate the thanks. I should have another set, or 2, out soon!!!

Thank you! I'm always using the Maxis doors, yet their windows are sometimes lacking in certain architectural designs. Your creation fills that gap now. Thank you!

Thank you for the 3-tiled arched window and your generous upload policy. I searched the web over and there was literally nothing else that would do. Fabulous! (See it used in the screenshots of my Willow River Plaza)

Life saver, I have been searching for this for ages, I had to reinstall and lost all my CC, I didn't realise how dependant I'd become of your work. Top notch, +10 points, have a cookie and thanks.

tbudgett I just downloaded this the other day, but the 2-tile arch is not recolorable? Do you think you could retest the one you have uploaded here? I noticed the post that you mentioned that you updated that, but the one I downloaded has just the white color. And I am apparently blind cause I couldn't fix it. :/

Thanks, I do love these windows! Is it possible to get one that is counter height in the non-arch so it works in the kitchen?

I have redone the whole set. There are more doors and windows. The new versions of the old windows should overwrite them. You'll need to redownload and replace your old set.

Make sure you have my old windows removed. It should work then.

That wasn't it, I just didn't pay close enough attention to the updated post and didn't have the particular door the others pull handles from, total oversight on my part works fine now!
