We are certified with Pacific West Tiny Homes, Inc. to offer RV certifications for NFPA 1192 and ANSI 119.5.
Pacific West Tiny Homes, through Pacific West Associates, is an appointed third party inspection agency qualified either by being appointed by two or more state agencies of government to conduct A119.5 and NFPA 1192 Standards inspections or has demonstrated their ability to meet the requirements (stipulated by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard E-541) for a third party agency. Manufacturers must appoint an approved inspection and design approval agency which will then conduct in-plant inspections that will take place at least once a year, not exceeding once per quarter.

Please note that an RV certified tiny home and an ADU approved tiny home are completely different in terms of the process and cost.
Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)
Pacifica Tiny Homes are the first tiny home company to have their tiny home plans approved and certified through the state of California to be used as legal ADU's and are considered factory built tiny homes. An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a room or set of rooms in a single-family home in a single-family zone that has been designed or configured to be used as a separate dwelling unit and has been established by permit.
All factory-built housing (FBH) components and systems that are offered for sale within the state to first users (meaning a person, firm or corporation who initially installs a factory-built home or component) shall bear an insignia of approval issued by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), in accordance with California Health and Safety Code § 19980 . The insignia shall be placed on the FBH unit, or component prior to shipment. It is permissible to remove the insignia after installation.
Insignia will only be issued through an HCD-approved FBH Quality Assurance Agency and for units that have prior plan approval, in accordance with California Code of Regulations, Title 25, Chapter 3, Subchapter 1
Pacifica Tiny Homes is a family business that consists of skilled contractors and plumbers that have been in their respective professions for 20+ years. The tiny houses are designed by Josue, and are built with the help of his father and brother, along with our hard working crew.
