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. Are you heading any further North? Would love to see you in Ullapool, and show you the off-grid hand built houses of the Scoraig peninsular… You shared our blog about our wrinkly tin 'Coopers' building in Nedd, Assynt a few years ago! About to start work on a tiny larch house in Wester Ross over looking Lochbroom. If you don't make it further North we are just glad to have you in Scotland! Thanks for the books and years of inspiration! I now run a wonderful craft shop selling 'one off' hand made Scottish work, from carved birch spoons to beach litter art – search facebook 'ceard Ullapool'
