ALL APPLICANTS NEED TO INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR APPLICATION.
The FIRST INSPECTION that you will need after you fill out your application for a permit and get an approved set of plans is the :
FOOTER INSPECTION-This is either an open hole inspection of your forms and reinforcement, if required, or an inspection to determine if the re-use of existing foundation is ok for the home being set. This inspection will be BEFORE placing or pouring concrete. Once the foundation inspection is complete, installation of the home may begin.
The SECOND INSPECTION that you will need is the ELECTRICAL INSPECTION. This is prior to electrification by a power company. Once the electrical work is complete, make a request for the electrical inspection. The inspection agency will provide an electrical safety inspector (ESI) to perform the Inspection. The inspection agency will notify the power company that power may now be connected to the home. The local power company will not energize the home without an inspection from an ESI.
Here are a few tips to be ready for the ELECTRICAL INSPECTION.
*Disconnect must be within 30 ft. of the home sight.
* A 4 wire system is required for the feeders.
* 4/0 aluminum conductors required for 200 amp service.
* 2 ground rods are needed at the service disconnect, spaced 6 feet apart, tied together with #4 copper.
* Feeders must be in electrical conduit at 18" depth underground from the disconnect to subpanel in home.
* Once under the home, conduit does NOT have to be buried underground BUT wire must still be in conduit until it reaches the subpanel.
* Ground wire in subpanel must terminate on the ground bar with bare copper grounds, NOT on neutral bar.
* If installing a double wide home, make sure both halves are bonded together.
* close up extra knock out holes in disconnect.
The THIRD and FINAL INSPECTION. This is when all the work on the home is complete, you then make a request for the FINAL INSPECTION.
Once the FINAL INSPECTION is complete and passed, an inspection seal will be placed in the home and it is now approved for occupancy. Occupancy prior to the final seal placement is subject to fines and legal action.
Here is what you can expect in the FINAL INSPECTION.
* Inspector will check the outside perimeter of the home and underneath the home.
* Inspector will be required to enter home.
* Inspector will check to make sure smoke detectors are placed properly in the home and work.
* Homes built before Sept. 2002 require at least 2 working smoke detectors in the home. Homes built after Sept. 2002 shall have interconnecting smoke detectors, with battery backup, in each bedroom and at least one in the common area.
* Inspector will check for water leaks under sinks, also make sure water is working in bathrooms and kitchen.
* Inspector will check to make sure there are 2 safe ways out of the home with no obstructions.
* Inspector will check electrical outlets, lights, ceiling fans, and permanent heating to make sure all are in working order.
