Finishing a Basement Window
We recently had some egress windows put in our basement. I am now finishing up the remodel, and I am trying to figure out the best way to finish one of our 4' x 4' windows. One of them was fine, but this one is a monster. The rough in is even with the drywall on one side, and is set appropriately (3/8" back to account for the drywall) on the other. The 2x12's which account for the rough in are not even, and well, I'm having trouble deciding what to do to make it look good. I started putting in the finishing lumber, and when I completed three of the sides, gaps in the joints were exposed, and I have a lot of patchwork to do. My main concern is with the trim work, because of the way the rough in meets up with the wall. Any ideas on what I can do? This happens to be in the main living area of the basement. My son's room turned out fine, and there were no issues with that window.
