Conversion of basement to walk out. We have a legit egress window, but the original family that built the house skimped and elected to save the 10k and not add walk out stairs...   This is great for an existing egress window, and if anyone is looking to rent their basement out, this gives a separate entrance!

How do you create egress?  Egress simply means an exit in case of an emergency.  Building codes determine how big this needs to be and where, but an egress can generally be a large window with a low sill that most people can use to climb out.  It can also be a door, which either means digging a concrete stairwell or installing a new door if your home is on a sloped lot.
