maybe because it is considered a "home" maybe, or just for safety, I know OSHA requires all buildings to have 2 ways of egress. or two ways to exit. in the military we had a storage building that failed the safety inspection every year until we added another exit.
I'm sure some states have "weird" laws, it might be added to meet the requirements of all 50 states, since it is a bit newer.
There's no screen on it either, they put an integral screen over the forward half and just surrounded the whole window with empty trim.
I like having it, whatever the reason. I'd have to run the stove/furnace/tank gauntlet to get out without it. I'm going to try to design the cabinets on that side strong enough to add a handle on the bottom, to allow myself to do a feet-first, "chin-up" exit.
