I'm remodeling a basement and trying to determine if a particular layout would violate code. I am in a 2015 IBC/IRC jurestiction.
This blog indicates that the bedroom must be
At least 7’ in any horizontal direction
And similar statements are made on other sites. But what does that mean?
Does this mean that a 7x7 foot square must be able to fit in the room?
A 7 foot diameter circle must fit?
Some other interpretation?
Sketch of room if it helps. Apolgies for the quality and lack of scale. The diagonal dashed line measures 8.6 ish feet, so from point A you could swing a 7 ft rod 90 deg without hitting the wall.
PS this is a permitted project and the bedroom is planned to be compliant in all other ways already. I would ask my county, but called too late to catch the plan reviwer before they all left for Christmas.
