Framing In Existing Window

I am redoing my bathroom and one of the three walls on the shower has a window. I was wanting to know how I should go about removing the window and framing it off so I can just make it a solid wall?

Welcome to the forums

What's on the outside? Drywalling up the inside or putting up a surround is the easy part, addressing the hole on the outside surface might be much more work.

There is Vinyl siding on the outside I was afraid that might be an issue.

Removing a window is pretty easy, you just take off all of the trim and cut any nails. Repairing the hole on the inside isn't horrible, just some drywall, typically. On the outside, you'll need to put sheathing over the opening to match the rest of the house and you also hopefully have house wrap over that which would need to be addressed and then the siding after that.

You sure this window needs to go?
