Egress Window too high
We are thinking of selling our 1970's slit level house and would like to turn the basement into a bedroom before placing on the market. The window that is in place is the correct size (21"w x 32"h), but the sill is 48" above the floor...ground level outside. The concrete ends just 44" above the floor. Would it be worth it to rip out the existing window and try to lower it to the concrete? with the casing, it may end up being 45"..... which would mean having to cut into the concrete.
Or, would you leave it, add the closet, and call it a non-conforming third bedroom? Thanks for your opinions.
