Tiny House BUILD PROCESS

Our team at Mustard Seed has learned a lot about what it takes to build a great home. We invite you to take a closer look at our building process, craftsmanship, techniques, and materials that go into each Mustard Seed Tiny House.

To begin with, we are firm believers in a strong code for building. Whether for a THOW, Modular Tiny Home or Park Model, we have a building code and inspectors to answer to. This ensures a safe and well-built home that will thrive through many decades of natures challenges. Whether it be weather, road wear, or daily use. To ensure the highest building standards, all of our tiny house builds are inspected and certified by a third party engineering & inspection firm to ensure compliance to building codes and standards. Some of these are:

IRC – International Residential Code
NFPA – National Fire Protection Association
NEC – National Electrical Code
ANSI 119.5 – Park Models
NHTSA – National Highway & Transportation Safety Association (for Park Models & THOWs)

Additionally, to comply with standards such as the states modular program, ANSI 119.5 for Park Models and Third Party Inspection Firms, Mustard Seed Tiny Homes has developed a 24 stage Quality Assurance Program to ensure we have the in-house system necessary to verify quality as we progress through each and every build.

Our building process has five primary steps.

1. Custom Trailer manufacture
2. Framing & Drying In, Windows & Doors
3. Utilities such as Gas, Plumbing, Electrical & HVAC
