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. 30 minutes east. On a good day. They went through hell getting these approved (after the fact) – not that there's code for them in any case.

    Pete Nelson has lots of fascinating stories to tell about building treehouses all over the world. Books, hardware, and many pictures:

    I was thinking about doing something a bit more modest in the back yard, but a couple of eagles took the best tree first. I suppose that they're putting it to better use.

  2. Yesterday in a photography festival we discovered about fifty extraordinary ''treehouses'' and imaginery shelters, built and lighted by a photographer all around the world.
    He calls them '' our grand-parents' cabins''.
    Each cabin looks like a precious temple where these persons shelter their dearest memories and hopes.
    It's quite powerful as you can see : (there are two slide shows)
