Bedroom Door

What is the code in California for a minimum width for a bedroom door? There is a sliding glass door going out to the back yard.

Re: Bedroom Door

We would suggest that the right answer will come from the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), i.e., your inspector.

Answers you get here to a question like yours are at best, entertaining. At worst, wrong.

In matters like this, everything is local.

Are you a contractor in California? Please start an introduction thread in the introduction section:

Also update your location information in your profile, so that we can better help you with questions.

I think that ADA code is 32", and standard building code is 30". But there are other factors that apply. Does the door lead to am egress hallway? You really are better off contacting your local building department.
