Tom’s Tiny Home

Tom made this meticulous tiny home, cutting out all the mini-shingles by hand. It’s 7″ wide, 16″ long, 10″ high (to peak of gable). It was made for us to use as a display when selling our book Tiny Homes at fairs.

The best way to buy books is in an independent bookstore. But if you buy books online, see our website for a 30% discount, free shipping (in USA), for 2 or more books. We beat Amazon.

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.
