Egress window needed?
Is an egress window required for a master bedroom walk-in closet if:
– Closet is accessed by walking from master bedroom through master bathroom and through an interior door to the closet.
-Closet is ~150-200sq.ft. and has two ~3×6 windows that are planned not to open…. better seal is the thought.
-What happens if a quick burning fire breaks out in master bedroom and there is no window opening in the closet or bathroom and someone is in the closet?
-Does code say it is not a sleeping area so no need for egress window?
-Does code say egress window needed because closet has a door and is its own area?
-Code followed would be 2012 edition.
-House is slab on grade.
-1st floor master bedroom/closet
