Sneak preview of tiny homes book at Maker Faire Saturday May 21st

I’m doing a sneak preview (slide presentation) of pages from the tiny homes book this Saturday at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif. It’s billed as the “World’s Largest DIY Fest-ival,” created by Make Magazine to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset.”

It’s a pretty huge event, I think something like 100,000 visitors. It’s mostly tech stuff, but there’s a corner called Homegrown Village where I’ll be.

Tip: get there early because traffic at this event is a bear.

(The robots walking around the fairgrounds are spectacular.)

It’s Saturday, May 21st at 11:30 AM, at “Homegrown Village.” Fair opens at 10 AM. More info:

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. I'm so glad to hear that you're going to be at the Maker Faire! I'm a fan of your work & blog. Saw you give a talk at the Santa Cruz Bookshop a year or so back. Love love love your blog. I'm a painter living in the Santa Cruz Mountains with my family. We'll be at the Make Faire on Sat…. hopefully we'll see you there!
