Framing around basement egress window


I am currently framing my basement. Do I frame around masonry or to the window frame(so the 2x4 framing is flush with the windows frame?

If I frame around the masonry, how would I finish off the window? Thank you for the help!

I think I know what you're asking.

There's several ways of doing. They very depending on how you plan to frame inside the basement. This is the way I did it. I'm sure someone will chime in with different ideas but mine came out great.

My 2x4s laid flat on the wall. I'm not sure if you can get away with that in your basement. With it laying flat, I put the 2x4s all around the window frame so they were flush with the existing wood bucks inside the window. Then I drywalled over everything. Came out sharp.

OK thanks that was what I was thinking but a few of the framing videos I've seen had to go to the concrete. Thanks again!
