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. nice art, all, but i would sure laugh to see someone paint that Hummer up proper, and sneak it onto someone's roof. am assuming since it is styrofoam, it is light.

  2. Dudley,
    Voice from past! Send me yr. address, will send you some books. I have the yurt lithograph you gave us (40 yrs ago!) (and was the cover of Shelter) on my wall.

  3. Amazingly cliche. An H1 hummer which is traditionally enormous, strong, and overweight made out of a material that is lightweight, extremely fragile, and used for packing material. Very cool. I saw this as well last time I was going out to menlo park.
