NorCal Beach

On the coast last week, I stopped at the Chart House in Montara to have a look. It appears closed. I’d never seen the beach just below it.

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. Chart House was replaced a year or two again by a pretty interesting Peruvian restaurant with a great bar and tapas. is that place closed now too?
    The beach below is an awesome hang on a sunny day, but watch for the vicious rip if you bring your kids.

  2. hey Lloyd. The chart house has been gone a looooong time. I used to work there a few lifetimes ago.

    the new restaurant la costanera has a great bar to get civiche and drinks and reeeelaaax.
