Canadian Real Estate/what's the definition of a bedroom?


Al wrote at 2012-11-23 01:35:08
Although , the answer to this person was covered fairly well, the definition should be investigated further by the expert. In Canada new Bedrooms require a very specific square footage for the window opening that (is required) in order to be called a bedroom. This window also must be 42 inches or less from the floor to sill as well.You can refer to the National Building code act for Egress requirements. A closet is required but there are stipulations for attic spaces with and witout steps and rooms that at turn of century did not have closets.Also doors directly to exterior can make a room a bedroom with no window as well. So if anyone is questioning this , do your homework witha local inspector. Thanks
