Question Egress window too low ,cut trim and board

We are installing a new window egress .The issue was location of the exterior marking. initially we thought it was going to be above the trim but as you can see from the tape its below the trim

I need to cut the opening by tomorrow and need some feedback
(25x25 opening) MA state (does not require 5.7 sq ft) .
Is this a big issue apart from looking funky ?

Egress windows can't be more than 44" off the floor as measured to the sill clear opening. So as long as the window is
