Basement skylight well, instead of window well
I was wondering if anyone has tried this. I'm reinventing the basement window well, ditching the clear plastic clam shell. I want to make the window well into a mini-addition to the room, like a window seat, and move the window up to the top instead, as a skylight hatch or roof casement window, thus turning it into a skylight well. This will be for a bedroom, so IRC egress requirements need to be met. I think I'm good, but I've never seen anyone do this before, so I wanted some advice. Please look at the attached image.
