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.

  1. Lol- That was my envelope….actually the package I sent my "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks…" book in months and months back….
    Never told you Looyd, but you actually were the VERY first person to order a book from me. Flattered-esp, as I mentioned, the inspiration behind it came a good deal from your books, as well as those from David and Jeanie Stiles- and Lester Walker.
    Too funny….I forgot I actually sketched that.
