Hmmm ...

First, I have to admire your honesty in your DYI level of skill.

If there's an existing window and you can remove the existing window to measure the 'rough' opening, ..., and the outside will require only, say, caulking, and you're installinga vinyl clad window, I say go ahead and find a window you like and read the instructions and see if you're up to it.

If you're putting a NEW hole in the wall and/or getting the existing window out is not easy and/or you have to worry about retrofitting around vinyl or brick or 'something' on the outside wall, get a pro.

Just my $.02. My best to ya and hope this helps.
