From the Desk of Robin
As President & CEO of NOAH Certified I am often asked many questions that pertain to the Tiny House on Wheels (THOW’s) movement.
In an effort to respond to some of these questions I am offering my personal opinion based on the insight that I have come across.
One such relevant question is: Can a builder build a THOW meeting IRC?
Under the current NOAH (National Organization of Alternative Housing) Standard, NOAH is requiring that all sleeping lofts have a secondary means of egress. This is a 24” wide by 17” tall ellipsoid and is further detailed in NFPA 1192 section 188.8.131.52. And an illustration can also be located in Appendix Figure A.184.108.40.206.
NOAH’s Featured Builder for the Month of June 2018
Tom & Denise Ryals of Hummingbird Tiny Housing LLC.
Tom & Denise became NOAH Certified Builders in 2016. No matter where you run into them they always make you feel like you are part of their family and this is a comment that we have heard from several other builders at various tiny house events.
With over 30 years of construction background Tom & Denise have found their passion in designing and building tiny homes. Check out their website and you will be pleasantly surprised by the models they offer like the cute 250 square foot Magnolia up to the Luxury 40 model.

Up until now buyers had to have cash for Tiny Houses on wheels. Koala Financial Group is working through Tiny House Manufacturers for the financing that was missing in the Tiny House industry.
