Mr. Sharkey’s Housebus/Housetruck Blog Returns


Going to toss this out in case you have a mortise to pound a round peg into:

After five years+ of oblivion, I’ve resurrected my website (albeit on a different domain). It’s pretty much the same old bus-and-truck dance with a layer of blog posts floating on top: (archived)

This should be a stable host for the foreseeable future. May register a domain name, may not…


For a lot of housetrucks and housebuses, see Tiny Homes on the Move.

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:

  1. I sure hope Mr Sharkey is doing ok…. the link above doesn’t work now (Oct 2019)? I remember finding Mr Sharkeys site in 1999 and followed his writings for quite awhile. Did he ever publish his opus, “Thirty Years in a Housetruck”? I wonder how the Crown project is going these days. I’m guessing any of his online activity is anonymous or very low profile now – I miss those days before Google and Facebook took over the interwebs…
