Just ran across this photo collage, taken 17 years ago from the top of the south tower of the #goldengatebridge . It was the first time I ever used a digital camera. Lew’s girlfriend Krystal knew the bridge’s resident architect and the 3 of us crammed into the tiny elevator up to the bottom of the horizontal plate of the topmost horizontal strut, thence to the top up a ladder.. what a thrill for a San Francisco boy!

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. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:
