Trimming Windows

Is it reasonable to trim a window with 1x material? If not, what do you use. I have installed new windows in new construction. I do not want to trim out the inside of the windows with drywall as I have seen lots of moisture problems through the year using this. I would rather use a dimension lumber. Thanks.

No reason you can't. The casing and sill in EVERY window in my house started out as a piece of 1X6 oak, except for the sills in the 2 bay windows. Those came from 3/4" oak plywood.
