    Default code requirment for stairs (CA)

    Hi,

    We are planning on remodeling. We will be expanding an attached garage and turning the garage roof into a roof deck with a set of outside stairs. We will be cutting through the 2nd story wall and putting a door into the 2nd story.

    ...

    We would like to remove the internal staircase to the 2nd story and install an elevator and use some of that footprint for an expanded-accessible bathroom. The question is, if you have an external stair case, does one have to have an internal one as well?

    Thanks, JD.

    I think you need an internal staircase, but to make sure, check with your building department.

    That's not true here, but the OP did note that this is CA so all my bets are off!
