The installers didn't have any idea how to cover the gap and after kicking myself for a week or so for not planning, I just had to come up with a solution. I purchased some white bullnose tile inexpensively at the home improvement store and installed the tile along the exposed edge. I cut the two end tiles so that the tile is centered. It isn't quite big enough to cover the siding, but it looks pretty nice and will do the trick until we save up for new counters, someday. I really do love my window! Now that I'm thinking about it, I may also install tile on my front window sill as my dog's nails have nearly destroyed it.

If the tile and the siding are flush with each other, you can purchase inexpensive plastic white trim from a home improvement store and install it over the ugly seam. It will give the seam a finished look.
Thanks! The window adds so much light into the kitchen. The only problem is that the cats love it as much as I do :)
I love this idea! It looks great and is unique. Love your garden window, too! I would love one in my kitchen too!
