Does a home in Newburyport, MA have to have another form of egress if all it has is an internal spiral staircase?

Building codes require 2 (two) forms of egress.

If you have a very old house and are planning some kind of renovation, you may be required to provide an additional means of egress to comply with the new code. It' may be impossible due to the original design of the building, in which case you may have to seek a variance.

Hope this helps!
