Re: Finishing my basement road block

Shannon, I was hoping and praying that finishing around these windows would be as simple as you have described. What would I have to do to replace the window in the event I need to in the future?

Insulating I beams

Our I beams are resting on the poured concrete walls and I was wondering how to insulate around them.

I'm just finishing my basement and the basement windows already have window boxes that are flush with the concrete walls.

How do I finish the windows after the basement is framed?
