That's what I did... it's easy, and removable when not needed.
First I removed a window and measured the opening, then cut a piece of ply wood that size, I screwed a piece of 1X3 across the inside bottom for extra support. Then I cut a hole in the ply wood the size of the A/C - then framed it on the inside with 2X4's to make a "window sill" for my window AC to sit on. Then put the wood in place of the window and secured it - my windows are held in with 4 big phillips head screws and washers, so that part was easy. Once the wood frame is in, I can put the window ac in as easily as putting it in a real window. I remove the A/C unit for travel, but if it were screwed in it should be fine.
I wish I had some pictures of my setup. I've only used it one time... Hopefully I'll get more use out of it this summer.
