Basement Bedroom Requirements
I was wonderin if a basement bedroom is required to have an egress window in it if the window is two feet outside of the door??

A bedroom must have a door or window IN the bedroom that leads directly outside
Window must meet certain codes & if below ground have steps leading out of the window well

We can't tell you enough:

Firemen go through that window expecting to find a person in THAT room, not the next one on the other side of that burning door:

Be safe, Gary
