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. That is remarkable, full of depth, timeless. How many paintings can you say that about today?

    Lloyd, your friends are every bit as resourceful as yourself. All of you seem to have mad artistic, creative yet remarkably practical skills combined with high energy levels. I am continually amazed and wonder where this comes from? I'm betting none of you spent much time watching TV in your lives. You guys are a whole separate culture from the one most of us live in.

    What a fantastic trip you're having, thanks for sharing.
