I have an old window well covered over in an unfinished basement. I plan
on sealing the entrance to the well outside with concrete.
It's a concrete well with a lip about 4 inches high above the ground. I
think I can use concrete screws to attach a 2x4 frame around the inside of
the well, about two inches below the level of the lip. Then I'll put down
some concrete backer board on the frame, creating a box about two inches
deep inside the top of the well. Then I'll fill it with concrete to be
level with the top of the well.
The idea is to create a permanent concrete lid over the well so that it's
just a concrete block outside the house. It will look a lot better than
what's there now.
I've never worked with concrete before, but I plan on using a ready mix.
I've been reading up on how to do it.
Can anyone tell me if this is a good plan? Am I missing anything?
