Stupid question here: the little sun appearing when you place a window represents the exterior, right?
Traditionally yes but it is actually just the side the reveal is calculated from.
You still click the side you want the door or window to face (the opening direction).
So yes you can have the sun (reveal) on the inside and still have the door or window facing outside.
If you have window sills then they will be on the reveal side.
But it all depends on how your object is scripted.
But if it allows you to shape the reveal how you want then all is good.
Or try using a second empty opening as Erwin suggested.
