What is he definition of a Bedroom in Noblesville/Westfield Indiana

We purchase a house last year, with an unfinished basement. We are trying to figure out if we want to build a bedroom in the basement, but don't know if we have to build it around the only window that's downstairs, or if it only needs a closet, and a door in and out to be considered a bedroom. Anyone out there know?

It must have an egress window and a closet for this room to be considered a basement.

The definition varies a bit from area to area and local code to local code here. Generally, a bedroom has to have a door, a passable window or exit to the outside in case of fire and has to be at least large enough to fit a twin bed. Here is what Sonoma county defines as a bedroom, but your specific area may be different.
