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. love to see the inside. betcha folks wouldn't be thrilled to have a stranger knock on the door and ask to take pics. grin.

  2. Hey, Anonymous, I've done it many times. I would sometimes take a loaf of bread and tell the folks that I've driven past their house for 6 months or so….and I would love to come back and see the inside….etc….and most all the time, they'd invite me in right then. This is such a beauty….I'd ask to go in this one too. hopefully, the inside is as sweet as the outside. looks like little crosses on the decoration. I wonder if it was a Parson's house?
