Darth Vader Lands in LA

I like this place. (Yes I do.) Gutsy architecture. Wonder what it’s like inside. I’ve shot pictures of it a few times before.

I’m about to head north, maybe to Pismo Beach tonight.

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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. I’ve just discovered that this house that I designed many years ago is called the Darth Vader house – no surprise. I was totally unaware that this was getting any attention until yesterday when an old employee of mine told me about its presence on the internet. Please feel free to contact me should you want to know more about this home.
