They provide light, privacy and great security!!

I would go with pre-assembled panels if you have never worked with them. A little more money, but fast and easy if the opening is not to big.

Building in place is very possible and may give your more satisfaction in the end.

On the last basement remodel I did, I used the kit provided in Lowe's and did a 32 x 32 window complete with silicone caulking in less than 35 minutes. Really easy to do, just make sure, since it is an exterior window you provide water runoff and prevent infiltration.
