Sneak Preview #2 – Handmade: The Half-Acre Homestead

I’m ending up with lots of photos of flowers in the garden. This is Alastromeria, or lily of the Incas (Photo on left by Lesley)

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. Beautiful Photography.

    Once again, Lloyd, I think you are missing out on a business opportunity. These, as many of your other photos (including one below of your home), are breath takingly beautiful. I think you should blow an assortment up (and maybe matt them), and offer for sale, maybe at your presentations.

    also, trot them around some art galleries. Seriously think you are missing out on selling your work in galleries.

  2. Beautiful Photography.

    Once again Lloyd, think you are missing out on selling your photography, as stand alone art.

    blow some up/matt them and sell at some of your presentations, art galleries, etc…

    (trying this again, the first time I posted it, it flashed and disappeared)

  3. Beautiful Photos, Lloyd. Once again, breathtaking. and, once again, will mention, I think you are missing out on retail opportunity. Matt up some of your photos (many make me smile, and go “wow”), and offer them for sale at some of your presentations/art galleries etc…

    Gorgeous work. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Good Lord….Never meant to post three times. I had posted and nothing showed up, so wanted to make sure you got the “compliment”, so tried and tried again. Sorry for the “hassles”. Please just delete a couple….===Sorry, again.

    (but they are so beautiful, truly grabs at one’s mind/heart).
