    Wow........ so does a closet make it a bedroom, and is a closet required in a bedroom??? Please don't answer.

    It is all general guidelines in real estate definitions only. No codes.
    In the 19th century there were no closets. We used wardrobes as part of our furnishings. Code-wise, needs a door and a qualifying window. Put your nap-mat anywhere you wish and have a good snooze.

    Not in the IBC or the IRC, and not outside Florida - as the original poster is outside Florida, that dictionary does not take precedence, the code language does, which I posted yesterday, and is posted again here:
    - From the IBC (which the IRC refers back to), (underlining and bold are mine)
    - - 201.4 Terms not defined. Where terms are not defined through the methods authorized by this section, such terms shall have ordinarily accepted meanings such as the context implies.

    Oh yeah... that day bed...?!? Be careful... You could be treading on "Board and Care" occupancy there... Of course, depending on what you get for "personal care..."

    I think someone's mind was not quite in the direction in which I was intending to direct it.
