I got into blogging reluctantly. Too much time. Am already overloaded. Of what value? At the same time the process was fascinating. Plus I’m a blabbermouth. I am continually seeing stuff out in the world that I am continually telling people about…here’s a way to tell more people…I started doing blogs on my last trip to Southeast Asia. From a dozen internet cafes, I emailed text to Rick in the office and he’d set it up as a blog. Now I’ve learned to do blogs on my own, and lately, to throw in photos. (Blog photos are more complex than email photos.) So I’m about to, for the very first time, blog directly from the road. As I finish this rather blabby blog, our Canadian Regional CRJ 170 jam-packed mini-jetliner (from Chicago) descends into Burlington, Vermont. Where it is, to my great anticipation, RAINING!

This is being posted from a wireless connection at a beautiful old farmhouse country inn in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
