Pro Snowboarder Mike Basich’s Off-Grid DIY Home in the Sierras

Mike Basich was our featured builder in Tiny Homes. This is his home built of rock, local timber, steel and glass in the High Sierras of California.

   Mike is the featured speaker at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif. on May 18th. I’m doing a presentation just after Mike on Tiny Homes on the Move (in which we show Mike’s pickup truck/camper/snowmobile carrier).

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.
