We had a rather large network of builders, gardeners, and practitioners of the home arts in the ’70s after we published Shelter. We lost track of most of these people in subsequent years, partly because had a 20-year interlude publishing fitness books, partly because the Whole Earth network faded away. Now that we’re back in the home building field, we’re assembling a (now online) community of like-minded folks. We have a huge amount of stuff for another general book on building (HomeWork 2) somewhere down the line. Here’s an email we just got from Estonia; it’s great to be hearing from simpatico people all over the world.
Dear Mr. Lloyd Khan,
My name is Veiko Lasting and I’m from country Estonia. Some years ago I saw one book HomeWork – and now in this spring I ordered it also to myself and soon also Builders of the Pacific Coast and Shelter.
Your books are very inspiering. after my friend Indrek saw how John Welles (HomeWork pg.25) was moving the house solo he started to build sauna also solo 🙂 picture of it added.
I made myself nice cosy apartment, in the middle of Tallinn near old city, to the basement of one old wooden house…
