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. I drooled over this for quite a while the last time I went through the terminal! It looks ready for the road, I wonder if it's ever driven since it looks fresh from the factory. As a Buffalo native, Pierce Arrows have a special place in my heart.

  2. I saw the car on JULY 5, 2015. I was overwhelmed. Is there any history available? I too grew up in Buffalo.

  3. Yes! It is driven on tours around the Bay Area and brought to National Pierce-Arrow Society meets. This 1930 Roadster Model B appears at the Gatsby Oakland Dunsmuir House each year too.
