Little San Francisco beach cottages

Over an inch of rain yesterday. I was heading down to Kevin Kelly’s in Pacifica for the 1st meeting of the Bay Area Screen Publishers User Group, a new group just formed “…to assist other like-minded folks in creating word-based content for the screen: small, medium, or large screens.

I headed out to Trouble Coffee near the beach in San Francisco. This neighborhood is a few blocks from Ocean Beach, and there are lots of little beach shacks here and there. Check out these little gems. Stylin in the city…

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

One Response to Little San Francisco beach cottages

  1. I grew up in San Jose, and SF has always been a magic place for me- I so love the architecture! Even though I live just south of Portland now, which is another magical place, SF will never, ever lose its magic for me. I still feel like a little kid when I go there.
