Statement From Barbara Reilly

On December 13th, 2019 – Dan, Brad, Zach, Chuck, Thom,  and Barbara represented THIA and our interest in participating with ICC Off-Site and Modular Construction Standards Committee.  It was agreed Tiny Homes naturally fall in this category of construction and should not be excluded but rather included in the development of a new standard.  The Director of Standards Development, representatives from the MBI (Modular Building Industry) and others “encourages us to take on an active role as an “Interested Party” within the workgroups and with the IS OSMC consensus committee as a whole.  I think he’s in fundamental agreement with us that the exception of tiny homes in the scope statement is probably a mistake and that it can be corrected.”  (quote from email 12/13/2019 – Tham)  The Director forwarded an ICC Guideline Development document and Brad forwarded documents on ICC Work Groups.

“We are pleased that ICC appointed one of our Directors to the OSMC committee,” said Dan Fitzpatrick, President of THIA. “Nick, with seven years running a tiny home construction company, understands the tiny home industry and will well represent our interests and concerns.”

Daniel R. Fitzpatrick, President Of THIA
