Has anyone constructed there own window well enclosure for a below grade egress window? Construction methods and materials used? How about a clear covering to keep debris and weather out?? ALL ideas or pics appreciated. -thanks -d-
I installed a couple egress windows & wells in one of our houses. I had intended to build my own "well", but kind of ran out of time with winter coming, and simply installed one from Home Depot.
There are some things you'll want to be sure to do - like dig down a foot or more lower than the bottom of the well, then fill the area with pea gravel, for drainage. Your city might also have some specific code regulations.
