basement window

Hello ,

I have one more question.

I have three windows in basement of size 32'' by 15''.
While I am framing the walls. How should I frame the window.

My layman thought process says :
I mean just a border of 2x4 would be okay and then drywall it with a little small hole to make it look better and then probably add a trim around it just like a door .

Please advice.

Thanks again.

The way I'm doing mine, and the way I've seen suggested the most:

Frame with 2x4's around the window up to the the edge of the surrounding metal frame. In other words, where the concrete/brick ends.

Don't drywall around the window, but use a stained wood trim around the outside of the window.
