Flo Hamer lives in a tiny house, it measures 4.8m x 2.4m - It contains everything she needs - kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and lounge. It's a normal house, but tiny.

For images check out her instagram -

Her house is a tiny house on wheels (THOW) meaning it's built on a trailer and it towable to new locations.

Tiny houses have become quite the movement, especially in the US, New Zealand and Australia.

Flo designed and built her tiny house and now lives in it.

We discuss her reasons for doing so, how she did it and how it's changed her way of life.

Tiny Home Builder, Crafter

I’m Flo. I make greenwood bowls, spoons and furniture and occasionally some things a little larger. I live in rural Herefordshire in my self-built tiny house.

I am hugely passionate about the traditional techniques of craft and building. The guardianship of these skills, along with the desire to create work that is sustainable for ourselves, future generations, and the planet, are what led me to the work I create now.

I have a degree in Renewable Energy engineering from the University of Exeter as well as a NVQ level 3 in Heritage Woodland Occupation. I am currently a student with the Prince’s Foundation and QEST, on their ‘Building Arts Programme’.

I have spend the last few years learning traditional woodworking techniques, from carving to timber framing and I use these skills to create sustainable, meaningful work and teach others, improving the scope of tradition and the longevity of specific crafts.
