Bruno Atkey’s sailboat

Bruno, one of the 3 major builders in Builders of the Pacific Coast, is getting ready to launch his Ola Suerte, a junk-rigged steel sailboat he has been working on for 22 years. (He built it from scratch.) Our mutual friend Godfrey Stephens will be there at the launching, and we’ll have photos of the occasion.

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.

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. That's awesome I wish I could be there to see it. I'm living in 300 sq ft now and plan on living half the year on a sail boat and the other half in a semi off grid space. I have been greatly influenced by you and your books especially this one.
