NOAHcertified.org - Tiny House Inspection and Certification

Robin Butler - CEO

Born in Kentucky, raised in Maryland, Robin originally took over a family construction business in 1974 and has been self-employed in construction ever since. He moved to Florida in 1992 to help rebuild Homestead, Florida after Hurricane Andrew. In 1995, Robin moved to Orlando. In the summer 2015, he started NOAH Certified, a third-party inspection and certification company for tiny houses on wheels.

As Founder of NOAH Certified, Robin Butler brings over 40+ years of experience building homes. From concept to completion, he’s designed homes, drawn plans and built standard traditional and larger homes.

His experience working with the permit department, building inspections/inspectors and Planning and Zoning provide a deep body of knowledge for the building process. Robin saw a need for standards in the tiny house movement.

“Builders were building tiny houses to whatever standards and codes they saw fit, says Butler. “Many builders were experienced yet some were not. And building a tiny house on a movable foundation has challenges that a home on a fixed foundation does not.”

NOAH Certified began filling this void by setting tiny house standards using national standards from the RV and home building industry. Even though NOAH Inspection and Certification is a voluntary process, over 100 builders across the Nation have become members of NOAH to assist them with the building of tiny houses. In addition to being able to use a tiny house as an RV, Robin is an advocate for tiny houses being approved as permanent residences.

Robin enjoys traveling the county speaking about standards and building codes for tiny houses on wheels. And, in his spare time, Robin likes to fish, snorkel and go hiking in the mountains. He is a happily married empty-nester, with four kids and seven grandkids, with three generations of family currently serving on the NOAH Certified team including Robin’s 23-year-old grandson.

Prior to marrying, Robin Butler, Bonnie was a single mom for 20 years and understands the value in living a simple life and the importance of quality family time which is what intrigued her about the tiny house movement.
