Only your local code enforcement office (ie City office that issues building permits) would be able to tell you what their codes are regarding Egress windows in your part of the country. Usually if they have a website with the info available, you may want to check that to see.

As Greg said; check locally.

Here is the number for IRC R310.1.1, notice the at-grade exception; http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...9_3_sec010.htm
