Alex and Becci are a lovely German couple who got in touch with us to show off their beautiful self-built THOW that sits on a farm in England. The couple built the tiny house in Munich, but when Alex got accepted to study Yacht Design in England, they moved.
While Alex works and studies, Becci works on the farm they call home. They have an adorable dog who loves hanging out on their couch by the wood-burning stove. Enjoy the photos of the construction process and finished build, and read their story below.

Alex & Becci’s Story:
Hi, we are Alex & Becci. We are originally from Germany, and that is where we build our tiny house as well. We moved to south England with the house because I (Alex) started to study Yacht Design here. We found a place to park our house on a beautiful farm, where Becci also works on now as well. We build the house on the street in front of my (Alex’s) parents house in Munich. My dad helped us a lot with is as well to design and built it, as he is an architect. The built took us about 7 Month and we documented everything on our instagram page, to maybe also help other people with their builds, as we took a lot of inspiration and knowledge from other people as well. We then had to tow the house 1200km to its destination in England, which took us 3 days and a lot of nerves. We are now settled here and document our life in the tiny house. Now we post about our life on the farm, food, minimalism.
Initially we were thinking of converting a van but soon realised it is too small to life in full time with a dog as well. We then found out about tiny houses and were instantly hooked. Just a month later we started building.
