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. Heh, one reason I moved in 1978 from North Carolina to Silicon Valley was to escape the crazy locals. Then I fell into the start-up culture… Crazy is both local & universal.

  2. The sloshed carpenter reference was a joke. This is a shed that belongs to a family that lives down the road from some friends of mine who own a wood flooring/green building supplies store called Planet Hardwood. Note the kid with an ice hockey stick to the right of the building. The family patriarch told me this was a very hard building to build.
