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®.
Your builder will receive training on how to apply the UCM® to your tiny house and direct access to Fred to answer any questions. 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®.
