Gang,

       My budget is 98% complete and I have 90% of my subs lined up and ready to go.  During a review of the budget I realized I don't have anything for window wells?  Have not seen this on any budget sheets?  First of all, what exactly are window wells (I assume its the finished trim at the bottow of the window, kinda the window seat?)??  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Randy

I may be off base but the only time I have ever heard window wells is when you have a window that will be below grade in a basement.  You would have to build some sort of retaining wall or half pipe around the window to push the grade against and also put a drain of some sort in.  that's my take on your question.

A window well is generally plastic about 4' in height that is put below grade in front of a particular basement window that gives you an exit to the outside. They even have steps built into them. and you can get coverings for the tops of them. You may have slider doors instead of a window. Mostly used for an emergency exit if you have no other exit to the outside from the basement...  about 200 to 300 dollars ea. at Menards. Some codes require another exit  to call your basement finished.
