Late afternoon sun rays after the storm

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 have been coming here for years. Don't know if I've ever commented before. You turning 80 and recovering from an injury forced my hand. I'm older also and still longboard. Travel the west in the summer with my dog and try to enjoy and make the world better where I go. You may not know how much positive impact you have on good folks lives. I hope they chime in here and let you know. The words, pictures and thoughts you selflessly share make a big impact. I see things others don't in our everyday world. You see those things and share. I think you are a good soul, a fellow traveler. Life's journey is made better by people like you in our lives. Thank you Lloyd, perhaps one day our paths will cross and I can shake your hand.

  3. In the spirit of Michael, I wanted to say thank you as well. Your books have inspired me and your posts continue to enlighten, educate, and bring into focus an appreciation for what I sometimes take for granted.

    Thank you, Lloyd for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us.
