Hi David, if I follow your question correctly all that you're wanting
to do is create a faux window casement. I son't see any need to remove
the drywall as long as you use really thin wood, say
1/16"-1/8" thick. The reason being not to obstruct the physical window
which would leave a really bad looking result (IMHO). If you're going to
use thicker wood then I'd remove the drywall on the inside of the window
opening. Finally, nailing the thin wood should be no problem considering
that underneath the drywall are 2x4s all around the window. Good luck!
