Replace basement window
 
My home has a poured concrete foundation. One of the windows in the foundation needs to be replaced because it leaks. What I'd like to do is get rid of this window and concrete over the opening. The problem is that this window is under an existing screened in room so I can only get to the window from inside. I did have someone come in who wanted to take the deck apart to get to this window but I wasn't willing to go to that extreme. At best, I'm a novice at home improvements. Is this something I can attempt myself or can a "How To" book help me through this project.
Thanks for any assistance
