Are old windows that were covered up needed by code???? Vents holes of any kind needed?? Plenty of info for a finished basement, but none for unfinished. What does code say for vents or openings of any kind needed for UNFINISHED basements? can anyone help with an answer for this. Thank You Kindly

generally speaking, a house is required to have windows IF there's a bsmt - finish'd or not,,, you should ask your local bldg dept for specific local rqmts,,, current code sez crawl spaces should have NO venting but wait 5yrs - that may change back
