“Dear PoPville,

I live in Washington, DC and I was thinking about converting a den into a bedroom. It has a door and 3 windows for egress. I have the space to build a closet 2 feet deep 5 wide and 6 feet tall but does the room have to be a certain square footage or width/length to be considered a bedroom?”

Anyone ever successfully (legally) convert a den into a bedroom? Anyone what are the exact rules/language that defines a bedroom?
