Tiny Homes on the Move News

We are coming to the end of a long haul, a year or more. We’ve been putting the book together two pages at a time, and a week ago we started printing it out. Boy, is it exciting! To see it in full size color after all this time. Lookin good!

The subtitle is: “Wheels and Water.”

Wheels: Vans, pickup trucks with camper shells, house trucks, school buses, trailers, and cycles

Water: Sail boats, houseboats, and tug boats

There are some 90 nomadic homes here; about half of these are lived in full-time, and the other half are used part time or for trips of varying length upon life’s highways and waterways.

We’ve put together five prototypes for a cover, which are in the above post. What do you think?

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.
