Basement Bedroom Requirements


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: http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...01YzyGnQ8v_t9g

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: http://illowaicc.org/uploadedFiles/I...20Openings.pdf

Be safe, Gary
