I, received a brochure on a house for adults 55+ at the Ryan Homes Legacy Signature Club at Manning Village Accokeek Maryland. The brochure show a entrance door in the basement rear wall.
I visited the model and the basement door was replaced with an escape window. I asked the sales person why was the door replaced with a cheap escape window, she said that the elevation dictates the door vs the escape window. I asked her which of the home sites will have a door and she said that all of the sites will have escape windows.
Ryan homes should not advertise the homes for adults 55+ when the basement egress do not meet the Building Codes for Amercian with Disabilities Act. I really like the house style but my decision not to buy is that I have limited use of my hands and it would be very difficult for me if i had to exit the basement by the egress window and climb a ladder to the surface.
