About 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:
British Columbia is always in my heart, Lloyd, and, after I found out I couldn't get a tugboat to live aboard, I decided I wanted a caboose. I saw one with a "for sale" sign in a window, but the owner came out and yelled at me for looking at it (just the outside, I didn't go inside).
I love the fact that this caboose has solar panels on the roof, despite being in the deep woods. Some people really are green, and I love that.
That was way cool! Love the different perspective … I wished I was at that party with those great people and all those dogs! I want to swing on that swing 🙂
