Options for closing off window in kitchen


Hi All,

I want to close off a window in a cement block house. Please see the attached picture of an outside view of the window. The question is should I block it up and then stucco over the cement blocks or is there some other method that might be easier.

Thanks in advance for you help
Regards
Gary

Why do you want to get rid of the opening?
No mention of where you live in your profile, or what "look" would be best for your area.
Any insulation in the walls?
There are ways to spray foam inside the block or add insulation to the outside of the building before you cover it up.

The reason I want to close it off is because I am creating another room on the patio which will include the location of the window as one of the walls.
