When preparing for an egress window, the excavation dimension should be as follows. Depending on the size of a new egress window hole sizes will vary 4 feet out from the wall, 1 foot out from vertical rough opening cut lines, and 18" below bottom horizontal cut line. This allows room for safe operation of equipment and installation of a window well.
