Builders of the Pacific Coast Excerpt in Architecture Week

Architecture Week, an online magazine (400,000 viewers a month), just did a nice excerpt from our book, Builders of the Pacific Coast:

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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. One of the most enjoyable books and inspiring too, that I have ever read. You get up early in the morning and have a cup of hot coffee and meditate on the pictures enclosed. Great editorial as well. A book that has heart.
