Bedroom Egress Windows in Minnesota

Egress Windows in Bedrooms in MN
At least one window in a bedroom needs to be an egress window. It's a minimum of glass area in square feet.  The egress requirement is based on a fireman being able to climb through the window.
If your windows don’t meet current egress requirements and you are replacing the windows without changing the size of the rough opening for the window, or changing the style of the window, you are not required to not enlarge the rough opening in the wall to allow an egress size window.  According to 2007 MN State Building Code, Chapter 1309 Section R310.1.5, the new window must be “the manufacturer’s largest standard size window that will fit within the existing window frame or existing rough opening.”
