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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

    Elaine, that is a great list.
    a huge number of links on it. nice to see so many more "decent" options opening up.

    I am glad to see, all these lists/links for Tiny Homes for Homelesss.

    What I would really like to see happen, is to someone offer these folks lings to "regular" Tiny Home Communities, so the "homeless" can somehow stop being "identified" as homeless, and more "identified" as "folks living in Tiny Homes".

  2. Thanks Anonymous, I agree.

    A group of Volunteers in Madison, Wi convinced the City council to build tiny homes for the Homeless. They formed a group called Occupy Madison. Zoning is the biggest barrier. They are looking to expand the current facility.
