Julie & Guillaume Visit Shelter in 2011

Julie Lambertson contributed 8 pages to our book Tiny Homes (pp. 136-143). The article contained photos, Julie’s drawings, and words on Ardheia, a commune in the woods in France where Julie and half a dozen people built simple structures. They were influenced by our books on building. In 2011, Julie and her boyfriend Guillaume came to the USA, took a bike trip up the California coast, and stopped off at our studio. Julie made a book from the trip, and here is her page on their visit to Shelter Publications world headquarters:

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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. Lloyd, Sorry this is off-topic, but I've been looking for an e-mail address for you. I have a question to ask about a book from the 1970s; I'm hoping you might remember it.
