Fairfax County Basement Egress Change

Fairfax County has relaxed it's requirement for egress windows in finished basements.  Previously, all basement finishes required an egress window to be installed.  Now, the new code waives this requirement for all properties constructed prior to October 1st, 2003.  If you have any questions regarding the change, or would like any further information, please don't hesitate toreach out to me.  The code revision can be seen in detail at the link below.
