I’m doing slide show and talk about homes this Friday in San Francisco

Gravel and Gold is a shop in the heart of SF’s Mission district. It’s called a “Magical Outpost in the Mission” by SF Station, which writes it’s “…where a hand-selected mix of artists and makers exhibit their crafts. You can find just about everything here from things to wear, to write or to work for your home.” Someone on Yelp says: “The clothing is really eclectic — natural fabrics, interesting patterns and designs, local artists.”

I’m going to show slides from Builders of the Pacific Coast and can talk about mini-homesteads and show some slides from our forthcoming book on tiny houses.

It’s at 8PM thus Friday, June 18th at 3266 21st Street, San Francisco.

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.
