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. Quite amazing – looks like it is faced with river stones.
    Great blog and can't wait to get a copy of Tiny Homes.
    I wonder are the back copies of Shelter from 70s available still?
    Inspiring stuff.

  2. Serendipity. I was looking for a picture of this very house and hit it on my first Google search. My friend Mary S. used to own it. A few years ago she sold it and moved into Grand Marais. And I've never quite forgiven her. 😉
