NOAH Inspection

NOAH inspects each Tiny House at specific phases of construction for compliance to the NOAH Standard, utilizing a proprietary inspection system.

  • Foundation or Trailer
  • Attachment Systems & Framing
  • All-Trades (Electrical, Plumbing & HVAC)
  • Insulation & Final

Each inspection is archived & available for review in the future.

Certification Seal

Builders choosing self-regulation voluntarily submit to a series of third-party inspections on each build to obtain the Certification Seal.

NOAH Certification represents builder compliance with the NOAH Standard, which is a minimum requirement, although builders may choose to exceed these standards.
