About Lloyd Kahn

  1. Lloyd, have long loved viewing your "Driftwood Shacks". Sometimes wonder if they kept the occupants dry…

    Guess they bring to mind, back when I was a kid, and we used to build wood shacks, looked a lot like these..(except we were no where near a beach, just a pasture with lots of fallen wood).

    One night four of use determined we were to camp out overnight in one. My Dad hemmed and hawed and mentioned he figured rain was coming…But we went…Middle of the night, it poured, and we scuttled to the nearest of our homes. All was fine, and Dad just smiled at our soaking…

    Hope the folks using these (as you have posted many) are better protected than we were…
