5-Min. Video Shot When Tiny Homes Was in Production

This is a 5-min. video by Kirsten Dirksen of me talking about the Tiny Homes book, books of the ’60s like the Whole Earth Catalog, and showing bits of our half acre homestead including production studio.  It was shot while we were in production. Kirsten and her partner Nicolás Boullosa run faircompanies.com, (in Barcelona), which has an “embarrassment of riches” in tiny homes videos.

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. Hi! I am a 28 year old writer/comedian living in New York City. I just bought Tiny Homes after I randomly picked it up at a bookstore in Brooklyn and I want you to know that all my friends and I love it so much. Your book is so very inspiring and beautiful. Seeing this little video about your book was also really great. Thank you for sharing Lloyd!

  2. I'm an expat American living in central Taiwan. I have been following your blog and reblogged this video on my Tumblr blog (Happy Wanderer in Taiwan)In the past week, the video has been reblogged three times. Not by anyone in Taiwan though. Such is the way of the internet. Enjoy your blog a lot and am thinking how I can adapt some of what I see to how we are living here.
