Green (Ivy-covered) City Building on Flickr

I’m trying to post new blog stuff every two weeks or so. Just can’t manage it more often, with all else that’s going on in my life.

My friend Eszter Hargittai just turned me on to Flickr. I guess most everyone knows about it except me. Just one of its features is being able to search for photos posted by its members. I looked up “natural building materials,” and got 200 photos. Click here to check it out.

Here’s a pic from Flickr:

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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:
