Advice on interior window sills

I am finishing up hanging drywall in my room addition. I need advice on when to install the interior window sills. Is this prior to finishing out the interior sides of the window opening so that the notches in the sill will be covered by the 1/2" drywall on the side? or?

Also, what is the common material used for interior window sills? Clear pine, poplar, ???? They will be primed and painted, so a hardwood is not necessary. I am in so California area. Thanks

Generally, the sill (technically the stool) goes on first, and yes, the remaining trim covers the notches.

And poplar is used because it is cheaper than clear pine.
