About Lloyd Kahn

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. Hi Lloyd, thought you’d get a chuckler from this Beaver Story.

    ‘Bucktooth bandits’: Police trace stolen lumber to beaver dam

    PORCUPINE PLAIN, Sask. — Mounties in east-central Saskatchewan have cracked what they are calling an “extremely Canadian case.”

    RCMP officers from the Porcupine Plain detachment were called to a rural area on Friday to investigate a theft of posts that had been piled on a property for fencing.

    The thief was soon revealed to have sharp teeth, fur, and a broad tail.

    Const. Conrad Rickards says the posts were found in a nearby waterway and it appears a beaver helped himself to the lumber to build a dam — perhaps with the help of some buddies.
