Default Walk-up basement

1. Is an exterior light outside a back door (walk-up basement) required by code?
2. Since the walk-up stairs are exposed, any suggestions on how to provide covering (ie build a deck) to prevent snow build-up?

been asking myself the same thing about the basement walk-up on some units. what will happen if theres heavy snow? will an overhead cover actually avoid it being snowed-in?

oh wait, i dont have the type of basement, im just wondering

we opted not to have a walk up when they told us it was the only option. ours was directly below the door off the kitchen, preventing any form of a deck from being built.

personally... I don't like them and I don't recommend them.
