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.

  1. What a mind. I think the coolest thing about Alex Cockburn's personality is that he knows himself so well, knows what he likes and is just as complex in thoughts of social issues as he is in art and aesthetic. I Love Alex!!! Yes, he's "radical" indeed, a rad kind of radical that stems from the truth wiith no hidden blunderous obscurity of fallacy. Never to be stifled by the vice grip any incidious media enterprise. I trust him a great deal.
