So yesterday a man from building dept. stopped by complaining about a 10 by 20 tent I have in my drive-way. He said I can't have it up. Its there now because im building a float for a homecoming parade this weekend and we are storing it there till friday. Im not worried about the float in worried about the Haunt that will be up soon with two tents covering the drive-way part of it.

I'v never got shut down or threated before, but im a little nervous now. I mean the haunt is safe, alot of padded walls and emergency exits, but my question is our us home haunters aloud to do this?

What reason did he give you? Did he cite a specific code? Here in Ohio you do not need a permit for a tent as long as its purpose is not "for the assembly or gathering of 20 or more people".

Just like I mentioned in the other thread, it is best to know the codes you are dealing with ahead of time.
