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. An award-winning prototype shows one idea to help the homeless

    American Institute of Architects Chicago held a design competition for concept homes smaller than 350 square feet that could help homeless youth rebuild their lives.

    built a prototype on the UIC campus. The cost, amazingly, rang in just under $25,000.

    It truly is tiny: only 336 square feet—less than two standard parking spots.

  2. 55 inch wide house
    The very narrow house that spite built: 55inch-wide home built on a sliver of land in a legendary neighborly spat over land use hits the market for an impressive $519,900

    The 860-square-foot home is 15 feet wide at its broadest point and just 55 inches wide at its thinnest
    Known locally as Montlake Spite House, it is rumored to be the result of a nasty argument between neighbors
    Legend has it that such a low amount of money was offered for the land, the owner decided to build the tiny home
    Now, however, the brightly lit, two-story space offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living rooms
