I am currently drawing the molecular structure of Benzocyclobutene (BCB). I want it to look like this

The BCB structure

My LaTex code looks currently like:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{chemfig}
\renewcommand*\printatom[1]{\ensuremath{\mathsf{#1}}}
\begin{document}

%\setcrambond{2pt}{}{}
\chemfig{*4(-(**6(---(-[0,1]=[:-45,1]-[0,1]Si(-[:90,1]CH_3)(-O-Si(-[:90,1]CH_3)(-[:-90,1]CH_3)(-=[:45,1]- **6(---(*4(----)\quad)---)\quad ))(-[:-90,1]CH_3))--))---)\quad}

\end{document}

which gives the following output The result of my code

Any good ideas how to shift the ring inside the aromatic ring? And also right group has to be rotated.

Like this? [Disclimer: I have no idea what I am doing, just played around with the angles.]

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{chemfig}
\renewcommand*\printatom[1]{\ensuremath{\mathsf{#1}}}
\begin{document}

\setcrambond{2pt}{}{}
\chemfig{*4(-(**6(---(-[0,1]=[:-45,1]-[0,1]Si(-[:90,1]CH_3)(-[:0,1]O-[:0,1]Si(-[:90,1]CH_3)(-[:-90,1]CH_3)([:0,1]-=[:45,1]-[:0] **6([:-30]---(*4(----)\quad)---)\quad ))(-[:-90,1]CH_3))--))---)\quad}

\end{document}
