Around Paris

This half timber flying saucer building is in the Parc du Luxembourg. No idea what it is.

Below: west side of Notre Dame. I like it better from the outside. It’s one of those huge cathedrals that is magnificent, but I don’t find elegant. It’s a marvel of soaring stone, but inside, seems gloomy. The stones that it’s built of are large and clunky-looking inside.

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.
