Adventures in Working With Wood

“I’ve followed your stream of fantastic information…for quite a few years, monthly I seem to find something that really speaks to me on those pages.  I own most of your books from Shelter Publications and am particularly inspired by “Builders of the Pacific Coast.”I believe a sequel to that book, if time and material permits, would be well received. I wanted to email you to say thanks and share some of the projects I’ve been involved with in the last few years here, at the website here. Much of my work from the last few years is in the portfolio section. I think you may enjoy, “Working with a Master,” “Extended Point,” and “Stevens Point IFTB,”  Thanks for your enthusiasm in the field of handmade construction and keep up the fine work.
-Adam Valesano”

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.
