Little girl and Home Work

Just ran across this photo out in the web-o-spehere. The caption reads: “And the latest addition to my book collection is my fav Lloyd Kahn and his book “Home Work”. It is another very inspiring book!”

About the blog: “Hello my name is Leanne and I’m a part time stay at home mom of my two sweet daughters, Chloe and Caitin,  and we just so happen to live on beautiful Vancouver Island!  My hardworking husband’s name is Brian and we’ve been together for half of our lives; he’s not so crazy about the blogging thing.  We have an extreme love for nature and relish being in the outdoors.  We enjoy gardening and pretending that our backyard is a little farm, baking vegan goodies for my daughter who has many food allergies, and crafting and spending countless hours at the kitchen table doing things.…”

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 pretty keen to share your work with my 1.5 year old… but for now I don't let her touch my "grown up" books with a ten foot pole. Well, I try. She does it anyway.
