finished basement sitting room/sleeping area


Ontario-I am turning half of my cottage basement into one large room with a lounge area along with an open sleeping area. There is a narrow staircase (30 inches wide) leading into the basement, as well as a small exterior door (48in in height, 28 in wide) and no window. Does anyone know if this will pass for appropriate fire exits?

Simple phone call to your building department will tell you.
