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. amazing houses up for auction, starting at 1,000 dollars.

    It’s a grand Tudor home, built in 1924 – Detroit’s heyday. It’s 4,200 square feet with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. And it’s in one of the city’s best neighbourhoods, the Boston-Edison Historic District, with stately mansions and leafy boulevards. Henry Ford, the Fishers, the Kresges and Joe Louis once lived there.

    It will be auctioned off online Tuesday. Starting bid: $1,000.
