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. That just might be the coolest thing I've ever seen. I like how that appears to be the original torsion bar front suspension…mostly.

    If I were them I would have put the running boards back on though (and maybe added a second set lower down), that thing looks hard to get into.

  2. These are so all cars such that they are seems to be very sweet and I like them very much. They all seem to be like that they have made by people themselves. Anyone who watches this will surely like this.
