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.

One Response to Oregon Farm Buildings

  1. nice bunch of pictures, barns and houses. Thank you. I have always enjoyed looking at different architecturally "small features"……Usually especially on older buildings like these, as new ones are mostly cookie cutter.

    what strikes me is nice lines, and although old and in need of paint, must have been very good wood/very good craftsmanship, originally. Look how straight and true the lines are.
