Live From San Francisco Green Festival

It’s a rainy Saturday night, 6:30 PM, and the festival hall is still packed. People started pouring in at 10 this morning. There are times when you can’t get through the aisles. It is just amazing, this (relatively) sudden awareness of treating the earth and its atmosphere with respect and intelligence. Our stand has been packed all day. Our brand new book, The Barefoot Architect — A Handbook of Green Building, is a hit. We have sold over 50 copies today. People pick it up and instantly love it. It’s got those vibes. We’ve also sold 30 copies of Home Work today. It’s so encouraging to connect like this.

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.
