About 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:
This blog is almost as cool as your books.
Hope you're enjoying London, Lloyd – I'm so pleased to have found your ever-fascinating blog.
Not sure how long you're here for but if you had time to visit the eighteenth century house in Folgate Street (particularly a night-time visit) I think you would enjoy the time capsule aspect of feeling very much http://www.dennissevershouse.co.uk/ also if you wanted to catch a movie in an unusual building you might want to look at http://www.electriccinema.co.uk/experience.php
in Notting Hill. It's beautifully restored and the way the motorised modern screen emerges and opens out from the original small screen recess is a bit of a joy. If you have the time/inclination it would be very nice to meet up for a drink and a chat. All the best in any event, Paul (Re William Cooper)
