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. Personally I think that that rock should have been left alone even if the house looks really cute…It ruins the view of the river and the beauty of the rock is spoiled with the added concrete features and what happens if there is a terrible flood? The river will take possession of the rock again!

  2. Elisabetta…. i understand concerns about blocking the view..


    i have to say.. somehow it does seem to fit, the location, the atmosphere…the artistry of the "scene".

    i have come back several times now to look at this pic,
    and each time

    I smile…..

    and feel happy.

  3. I agree it totally fits the scene and makes it unique. Otherwise it would be one of many beautiful views on this Earth, but this is just amazing…
