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 was lucky enough to see Rory Gallagher "live in Toronto when I was 25 (I'm a bit older than that now!) and had travelled from Liverpool, UK, to visit "unannounced" an aunt. Sadly for me she had gone on vacation for six weeks a neighbour told me as I stood knocking on her door after my 3000+ mile journey. That taught me to check things first!

    So, I booked into a hostel in downtown Toronto and saw there was an open air festival in, I think, a football stadium and bought a ticket. I can't' remember who else was on the bill now but I remember that Rory Gallagher knocked my socks off. A wonderful guitarist who played wonderful songs.
