The window well is designed to let light into the basement, and also satisfies the egress requirements for the basement. The 'steps' serve two functions - they act as raised beds, so you can plant flowers etc. in there, and they also serve to allow emergency access as steps (i.e. they are not meant to be a primary set of stairs, just for use in emergency).

That unit was approximately 4' wide. It gave the required 3' outside the window to enable it to meet egress requirements, then the steps were about 6" wide each.

you must put a railing around the top - I had a friend fall into a window well once - not good!

You are correct - code dictates safety issues and will require railings for certain conditions with egress window wells. This photo was taken to showcase the product - as you can see from the grading, it is not a finished product!

A lot of factors go into determining what it would take to be able to do any remodeling project, but anything is possible! Our suggestion would be to contact a remodeling contractor in your area that has experience working with the product and let them come out to take a look at the house so they can give you an estimate of what it will cost to have them installed!

This egress walkout was actually tied into the interior sump pump system in the house. There is a solid PVC drain pipe that goes through the foundation wall and ties into the interior perimeter drain, which in turn drains into a sump pump basin. We have also installed egress walkouts with a 'drywell' at the bottom conisiting of an area dug down and infilled with gravel that gives the water an area to collect and dissapate.
