Sneak Preview #4 – Handmade: The Half-Acre Homestead

We have completed 94 pages so far; this is maybe 60-70% of final page count. This is by far the best book I’ve done in many years.

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. I am so excited for this book, I have been waiting on it ever since you mentioned you were doing it!
    I would love to see “a typical day in the life” of the homestead as well as a chapter or a post or something.
    Love all your work, have most of your books. Keep ‘em coming!
