Here’s the sitch:
Basement floor to bottom joists is about 6′-6″. Wanted to rearrange the basement stairs because the current stairs are downright dangerous. So we submitted it to building safety, and today got a note from a plan reviewer that the stairs won’t work because there isn’t headroom!
In my view, it isn’t really a basement,it’s a crawlspace. Somehow a 22 x 30 trapdoor with a ladder would be legal, but a stairway isn’t? Doesn’t really seem to add up.
what do you think?
