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. Hi Lloyd, your garden looks nice, and I love the stove as well! We were inspired to build a small greenhouse/wood storage shed of our own design last summer, so it was great using it this spring for veggie and flower seedlings.

    Thanks, and can't wait for the tiny homes book!!!

  2. Love your photos. They remind me of my grandmother's yard. Nature is so healing. After the loss of a baby, the only place I could find comfort was outside by the water under the trees.
