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. Hi Lloyd i just heard that your doing a talk in Kirkaldy on the 10th of May but the tickets are all sold out. I love your books and can't wait for the new one to come out. They are truly inspirational. I was wondering if there are any extra spare tickets for your talk as id love to come to it? I emailed the theatre but they said theres no tickets left and standing is not allowed. Is there any possibility of a second talk on another day? Ps An Sgurr reminds me of close encounters from some angles. Its a great climb and view from the top. Thanks. Thomas Harper thomasharper2000k@yahoo.co.uk
