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’m pretty sure this was the band bus that I rode in during the 1980’s . When I played the drums in my cousins band called : Low Water Crossing ( southern country rock band) .It was all white with a purplish blue tinted middle window . That’s were we took a piss into a big plastic funnel that was connected to a an old garden hose …lol . This took place in the New Braunfels Tx. / Canyon Lake area from 1981 to 1989 . A lot of cold Lone Star beer , great music and memories !
