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.

One Response to Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out/Preservation Hall Jazz Band

  1. I was in New Orleans in 1980 and visited Preservation Hall to hear the music. The band performing that night was led by a wonderful woman named Sweet Emma, who had lost one arm but continued to play piano.
    I was raised on jazz and blues and swing music. My father played standing bass in a dance band before I was born, played trumpet (and painted scenery) in the Canadian Army Show overseas in WWII, and played French horn in the city band when I was young.
    After Mom, and then Dad, died, I told my brothers and sister that I only had one regret about the life our parents had together: I never got them to visit New Orleans.
