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. Simple and quiet… I love the way american homes look with their canopy (terrace ? porch ?). Even tiny homes have their little one !
    This home seems to be situated in a dry country. Trees give you a lot of peace but living in a forest is not a good idea in rainy countries… too wet and dark !

  2. I love this house. Have looked at all of the images in attached url. I read with surprise the comments of someone who thought it "creepy"…. and then… i have to say, i could see how it well might belong to an otherworld being, lost in the woods…(but i still admire it…)
    Too, read the comment that "no one lives there"… I bet they do. Seriously. I have seen this home on other sites, and read a bit about it there, as well as the url provided. These two seem impossibly organised and meticulous. But… have known some like that.(not me)

  3. Truth be told, there was something about the interior that struck me as a bit weird. An intellectual exercise rather than a real home. As I've said before I don't just post things I love, but also things of interest. The exterior proportions, deck, fireplace are all nice.

  4. It's beautiful but, as several have noted here, very strange. Ever since stumbling on this house I've wondered about the mysterious husband, Micheal Lorence, spoken of but never seen. Part of the mystique of the place, I suppose.
