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. Lloyd, I'm not commenting on this post specifically, but on the strong level of appreciation I have for your blog in general. I grew up in Modesto lived in Santa Cruz for a few years after I retired from the Navy. Every time I check your blog, there's something that makes me think back to the weekends we spent as a family in SF. My only really good times with dad were walking up and down the streets and his endless stories. Sandwiches at Tommys Joint and learning so much at the maritime museum. Most memories were less than pleasant, he was overbearing and very demanding, but those were the good ones. Thanks so much for bringing them back again and again.
