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. Hey Lloyd – it doesn't look like your having any trouble finding good spots/beaches. But if you're taking recommendations… maybe buzz down to the end of Anini Beach while you're up north there. Some neat beach houses, ok swimming (maybe snorkel the channel), and some interesting people camped out way down at the end. Great spot to spend a few hours.

    Trip looks and sounds great – thanks for the updates!
