It might be a poor idea but is not a sleeping room with the same requirements for egress as a bed room.

Given: attached garage, roll up door and door into home are the only doors in or out of garage, garage door opener installed, rope handle 6' up for emergency roll up door release (special knowledge), Builder installed a keyed lock handset on the door , key side in garage. My contention is that this created a man trap where a child or older person could be locked into the garage with no means of escape/egress. I can not find anything in the 2015 IRC that addresses this situation, for or against. Any thoughts?
