Is This Tiny House Manufacturer Playing by the Rules?

Builderonline.com recently wrote an article about Wheelhaus, a Jackson, WY tiny house manufacturer that is now building larger versions of its tiny houses up to 1,500 sq ft.

The homes look absolutely beautiful and I hope they are winners for Wheelhaus but I could not find anywhere in the article that these homes are built to any IRC code including the revised for tiny house IRC code.

I hope they are. If not, why not?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Here is the Builderonline.com article.

Here in PA we call it the shed builder mentality. My nephew is in Tacoma area and he sees shed folks pushing this avoidance of code construction methodology promoted in remote non coded areas..your always going have some of the cleaver the shed mentality with us..thats why we support trade group lobbyists like a NAHB, to root out illegal competition!

I think these tiny house people feel they are not required to follow any code whatsoever. This is a growing housing segment that desperately needs regulating. RVs are built to a code as are manufactured and modular, so why not them?
