Unified Construction Method® for Tiny House Vehicles
What is the Unified Construction Method®?
The Unified Construction Method® is a patented building method for tiny house vehicles (tiny houses on wheels/trailers) developed by Fred Schultz of Fred’s Tiny Houses Pty Ltd. Fred developed the Unified Construction Method® to make his tiny house vehicles safe to transport, suited to the Australian climate and comfortable to live in all year round .
Protected under Australian and international patent:
The Unified Construction Method® is protected under Australian and international patent.
That means that using any one or up to all four elements of the Unified Construction Method® requires a license to do so. To use the Unified Construction Method® without a license may be an infringement of the patent rights.
To cause or enable another party, such as a trailer manufacturer or third party builder to use any one of the four elements of the Unified Construction Method® without a license may be considered to be contributory infringement of the patent rights.
How can I get the Unified Construction Method®?
Come to our workshops to learn everything you need to know about how to build using the Unified Construction Method®. You receive the license to use the patented method for FREE.
Engage a Third Party Builder:
If you would like to engage a third party builder to build your tiny house using the Unified Construction Method®, you can.
When you order a trailer from us, let us know that you will be using a third party builder and we will quote you for the trailer and the license to use the UCM® once.
We will then work with your builder so that they know how to apply the UCM® to your tiny house. We will arrange checks with the builder at key points of development to ensure that they have applied the method correctly.
You will receive a compliance certificate from Fred’s Tiny Houses once your builder can prove compliance to the UCM®.
Affordable licenses to build using the Unified Construction Method® are available in two formats:
- Once-off License enables you to build one tiny house vehicle using the Unified Construction Method® as described above in Engage a Third Party Builder.
- Yearly License enables you to build as many tiny house vehicles as you like during that 12 month period under the one license fee. You will also become a referred to builder on our website, as we will promote your business as a UCM® provider and refer clients to you.
