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. Hey Lloyd, hope you’re doing well!

    Although I was there and I and the vehicles look like it (the 60’s), I didn’t start photographing these rigs until the early/mid 80’s! Of course some of the vehicles were from the 60’s and they were certainly inspired by the nomadic movement that started then, I didn’t pick up a camera and start photographing any of them (except mine) until almost 20 years later!
    All the best to you – Rick
