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. I am sorry I will miss your visit to Vancouver. I hope you have a chance to visit some of the laneway homes that are being built. There are some wonderful use of spaces that otherwise would have been fillled with a 5 car garage, instead we have these sweet 800 sq ft homes that sit on a lane. You can find these homes everywhere, from the ritzy to the not so ritzy neighbourhoods.
