About Lloyd Kahn

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.

  1. Hey Lloyd,

    I love your book "Builders of the Pacific Coast", and am looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of shelter in the near future. I was excited to find out that you've got a blog. I wonder if there is an RSS feed option for the blog. I'd love to follow regularly.
