Advance Books Here!

Yesterday Erin from FedEx came in as scheduled at 4:30 with 2 advance copies of Tiny Homes, and 100 copies of the tiny Tiny book. Do they look good! Here are a few poor quality snapshots:

Below is a copy of the tiny (2 x 2½”) Tiny book. 34 pages, sewn binding, a first for our printers. We”re going to include one free with each order for the real book, and use them for promo.

We’re off tomorrow for the Green Festival…

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. Thanks – went to your site and ordered it today. I hope I got the order in soon enough to get the tiny one too, but I'll be happy with the book nonetheless. Thanks, Mr. Lloyd – naomi

  2. Lloyd, I so loved Home Work, I was inspired to convert a toolshed attached to the back of my garage into a beautiful home office. Then, when I moved out it became an elegant little retreat I live in a couple days a week. Check it out at

    It's located in the East Bay, and includes a great little composting toilet outhouse in the new shed. All contained in a tiny 20'x50' fenced in suburban lot.
