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. Lloyd, you mentioned your digging, the round barn roofs on a recent trip.
    And that you were thinking about making a shed with a curved roof…
    Popular Mechanics did some articles on curved rafters.

    April 1953 pg 194

    I think this second one would work for your shed building idea.

    April 1956 pg 214

    I got to these from

    and searched for "curved rafters" there is a ton more info besides these two (and not all Pop/Mech).
    Not to mention if you changed your search term.
