Taking off for Europe tomorrow

My wife Lesley and I are leaving for London tomorrow. We’ll be there a week, then head for Ireland to travel on the west coast. We hope to visit and maybe stay at Dan Hummel’s stone home he built in the ’80s and ’90s (shown here) on the coast in Cork County. We’ll roam around (Ireland (which I love), then cross back to England, go through the Lake District, to Edinburgh, down to Suffolk. I’ll head to the Frankfurt Book Fair for a week, then we’ll meet for a week in Paris. I’ll be shooting photos (with my new Panasonic Lumix G1), posting them on my blog.

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.
