Hey guys! I just moved to Texas, and I'm trying to find out if it is acceptable / legal to install a residential door so that it is an outswing door, rather than an in-swing door.
I'm from South Florida which requires ALL residential doors to be outswing. This is done because in hurricane-prone areas... the outside pressure helps force the door to seal better, so that the home doesn't implode and cause the roof fly off.
There are no hurricanes in Texas where I'm living, but my intent is to free-up space by the main entry. I have enough room on the stoop / porch where guests can stand as I swing open the door, but it dramatically opens more space for me by the entrance inside for a place to hang coats and put a little table for keys and such.
Before I go and modify my home, I just want to make sure that I'm not violating any legal code or anything that anyone is aware of?
