An inspection sheet is a living document. We use the phrase “living document” because it is an updated document every time there are changes to the tent permit application.

The Advantages of an Inspection Check List
- Reviewing the permit application
- It’s association with code requirements
- And restrictions.
A warning we are using the KISS logic “Keep it Simple Stupid.”

# Creating an Inspection Sheet.
# Begin with opening the permit application using the permit as reference
# The first step is to create a permit outline
# However, if you find the permit is not requesting or missing regulations
# may I suggest that you go back and fix the permit process
# and then create or modify your inspection sheet.
A reminder: the inspection sheet is a guideline for the AHJ or a third-party inspector who ends up with the responsibility to inspect the event, which allows us to follow our KISS formula.

The Eraser Model for Really Big Mistakes
The Eraser Model for Really, Realy Big Mistakes
I cannot take all of the credit for the eraser model because one of my advisory board members who is a Chicago Area Building Code Inspector, told me that it is much easier to use an eraser to fix a problem on paper than on the job site. His suggestion is to:
- Establish a policy of reviewing the construction documents, and determine that the construction documents are compliant with the regulations.
- However, if there is an error in the permit documents correcting the problem on paper is far more productive than discovering the infraction onsite.
- You may also have eliminated the possibility of a loud and animated discussion on the job site.
Therefore, we have established a simple process for developing an Inspection Sheet.
Onward to the physical location and construction documents…
The first inspection step begins with “Site Location.” The site location information is available from the construction documents or the permit application. However, I would strongly suggest that there are construction documents that you as an AHJ can follow versus information on the permit application. The same construction documents should also have the structural design information and floor plans.
We begin by arriving at the…

Documents, Drawings, and Certificates...
After you are satisfied with the structural design, we continue with your inspection course…
The Floor Plan...
I want to point out the egress chart and the design drawing. Notice that the table requests two exits, and the design drawing has one. Here is another example where a permit review would catch this infraction. My I boldly say, “the eraser model strikes again.”
