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. Been trying to teach my 14-year old that cell phones don't have a place at a restaurant table, or most any table (unless you're alone.) Not having much success in that.

  2. We had a family reunion last month in Tucson, I can report from driving my nieces and nephews around that they are excellent turn to turn navigators with their smartphones, especially for finding the nearest In n Out burger.

  3. off topic, Lloyd, but thought it rated right up there with the socialising up above. wondered if this might interest you.

    Kickstarter Campaign for Potato Salad

    this fellow is raising money, to make potato salad. Seriously.

    Wondering if anyone might sign up, so they can comment and suggest
    that he make potato salad to feed the homeless?

    Seems like it would be a whole lot better than him making
    it and chucking it.

    any takers?
