Meet The Team



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 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 brings 40+ years of experience building homes. From concept to completion, he’s designed homes, drawn plans, and built homes of all sizes. His experience working with the permit department, building inspections/inspectors, and planning and zoning provide a deep body of knowledge for the inspection and certification process. 

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.

As a Pennsylvania native, I started my career in masonry but after a few years and seeing all of the masons wearing back braces I moved on to become a Plumber. When attending night school for plumbing my instructor would always comment, “Rich why do you always use pen, ughhhhhh”. He was a Steelers fan so what did he know! Looking back, that constant use of a pen might of been an early sign of transition to my inspection career, 18 years and counting working with a Municipality and a Third Party Agency.

I have been fortunate to work in the field and in the book on the smallest of projects up to publicly traded companies. However big or small the project they all deserve the same attention.

Previous Certification/License/Course Work

  • Plumber
  • Masonry Apprenticeship
  • American Concrete Institute Inspector
  • Significant FEMA coursework.
