    Is it certified by NOAH?

      For goodness sakes… It’s only $10k what all do you want for that little money?!

        In order to legally move it down the road, insure it, or get financing for it, it has to be certified, as it should be. If just anyone builds a tiny house and it isn’t built right, would YOU buy it? Certification insures that it is safe for the one who lives in it, and for those who live near it. Also, certification insures that it won’t fall apart going down the road. I am certainly not saying anything bad about the house…. I like it. But if it isn’t certified, there are no guarantees that it won’t fall apart, you can’t finish it and resell it, insure it, or finance it. In that case, $10,000.00 is a LOT of money, because you are throwing it away. I speak from experience…. I am building my first one, and the certification process has been invaluable to me in terms of learning the right way to build it.

          That’s not quite accurate.

          First, there are many tiny houses built and sold that aren’t certified. They don’t have to be certified to be sold. Anyone with construction experience can determine if a tiny house is built well and road worthy.

          Second, tiny houses can be insured, even though they aren’t certified. There are companies that will insure home built tiny houses.

          Third, tiny houses don’t have to be certified to be financed. It all depends on your credit score and ability to pay the loan. Someone with good credit will have no problem borrowing money to buy a tiny house.

          A few high end builders use those same scare tactics to help sell their overpriced tiny houses.

          That’s not accurate, certifications can help but they’re not required because they’re only a third party service that makes the process easier but it can be done without them…

          Trailers already come with VIN and you can get a state inspector and go through your DMV or other local state authority to have it registered to legally move it on the road and be able to use it as a RV, etc. It’s usually more important that you have the proper tow vehicle and license…

          Though, some DIY RV’s are very basic and may only be legal to move locally, depending on the local rules, which may not require it to be registered with the state… So just can’t move it on the highway, as another distinction of what can be legal… and there are insurance options that do not require certification to qualify…

          Besides, certifications are for completed end products and some certification organizations, like RVIA, specifically only deal with commercial builders, do not cover whether or not it can be used as a home and will even consider it fraud to advertise it as a home, and they don’t inspect every unit build but rather do random spot inspections. So no actual guarantee on every single unit sold…

          NOAH is a little better as they also cover DIY builds, do remote video inspections on every build, and will at least give their opinion that it can be used as a home but all they do is inspect and state whether or not the minimum requirements were met or not, which means you can actually opt to build far better than those minimum requirements, which may be the actual right way depending on where you plan on living and what you intend to put the home through…

          While Tiny Houses built under the 2018 IRC ICC with Appendix Q can be inspected like a regular house… and the most flexible option is to deal with a engineer/architect because they can do the math and figure out what design options and materials can work, and be able to sign off on them, vs standard inspectors who can only go by whatever is in the code and is the standard way of doing things but may not be the best option for you…

          So just not being certified doesn’t really mean much, you just either have to look at other types of proof or go through a more complex process of verifying…

          This does have a license plate, which means you can tow it legally on the road but as it’s not completed then it’ll need to be inspected once the interior is further along… You could opt to have that be NOAH certified or just go through the local authority to get it registered as a RV…

          My guess is you are not cut out for TH living with that kind of thinking. You get little from such certification except higher cost. Just learn how to build one right then build it right.
          Nice unit though at a good price. This with fabric or other family room added once where parked would be a great low cost home that can actually travel, unlike most THs.
          But if one is going to tow it a lot, it needs to be much more aero and maybe lighter.

    Great little home for the money! It’ll allow the purchaser to still put their mark on it with the finishing details. I’m just curious how difficult it’ll be to do the electrical and plumbing since the walls and floors are finished? I’m not a fan of electrical running on the outside of walls.

      Existing rooms can be modified, not as easy as when the walls are open but it can still be done. Though, you can hide conduit with trim or inside of the built in furniture…
