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.

One Response to I’m Doing Slide Show/Book Signing for Tiny Homes On the Move This Thursday (June 19th) in Berkeley

  1. Hi Lloyd, I'm a reporter for Jefferson Public Radio in Ashland, Oregon. We're the NPR station in southern Oregon and far-northern California. I'm working on a piece about tiny house living. I've got interviews (and a tiny house tour) from folks in my area. Now I'm looking for someone who could give the 10,000-foot view of this movement, putting it in context with previous expressions of these same social/ecological/political/personal impulses (domes, owner-builder, straw bales, rammed earth, etc). I'm particularly interested in hearing about similarities regarding struggles over codes, etc … I'm a former owner-builder from the mid-80s and I remember reading Shelter for inspiration. Seems to me you'd be the perfect source for this perspective. Would you be interested in a recorded phone interview sometime this week? It'd take maybe 20 minutes or so … Please get in touch with me ASAP via e-mail: moriartyl@sou.edu. Look forward to talking with you … — Liam Moriarty
