Insulating a Basement Window Well
Hi hope all is well. I have recessed basement windows in a concrete wall (picture attached). If I attach 2 inches of rigid foam on interior of window well and then attach 1/2 drywall even without furring strips I think it would be too thick. Wouldn’t this also invite insects from outside into the rigid foam or cause drywall to rot? Do I insulate the wall and not the window well and just seal around the opening?
