Default How to make a window for a house

Just wondering how to create a window for my house. I have all the walls built, now I need to know how to add windows in them. Any help would be great. Thanks.

If you're using polygons you can use the boolean difference tool to punch a hole in the wall. Its in the polygons menu somewhere (haven't used it in a few months)

Or if you are planning to model another building you should consider doing what I do, which is build the wall around the window or opening. It allows for much easier modelling, visualisation and placement of finer details than booleans. But that's just me.
