Window Well for buried window
I like to look for low-effort projects to do at my parent's house when I visit. I'm really, really not handy, so nothing too ambitious.
One of the basement windows was partially buried, and leaked. A handy man dug it out, and it no longer leaks. Still, this window indented in the ground strikes me as less then ideal as a long term solution. To be clear, there is a one foot hole around it , and he hole has dirt walls. How much would be involved in sticking in a metal window well? Could I get away with not bothering to attach it to the house? Would it be better then nothing if installed without drainage, or would it cause drainage problems?
