Switchgrass Tiny Homes was formed by Byron and Jessica Denhart on a walk one day with their infant son, when both realized that the culmination of their talents and abilities and obsession with tiny homes could only mean one thing: start building tiny homes! Byron comes from a background in real estate construction management and has a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois. Jessica holds an MFA in creative writing and works in several different mediums as an artist.

NOAH Certified

 
 

NOAH (National Organization of Alternative Housing) is a national trade organization founded expressly for manufacturers and builders of tiny houses on wheels. NOAH requires all members to adhere to the NOAH Standard, which requires builders to use construction standards set forth by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), NEC (National Electric Code) and NHTAS (National Highway & Transportation Association), yet pay specific attention to the unique needs of tiny houses on wheels by incorporating the American Tiny House Association’s Construction Guidelines. 

NOAH visually inspects each and every Switchgrass Tiny Home at several different stages throughout the construction process. Only after each stage of inspection is completed can we move on to the next part of construction. After the final inspection is completed, that home then becomes NOAH Certified and receives a plaque with serial number referring back to the video archived inspections. 

What does this all mean for you? It means you can rest assured that your home was built to the highest industry standards, standards used not only by tiny house builders but ALL home builders. For more information, please visit www.noahcertified.org.
