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. Hi Lloyd!

    So happy to find your blog!
    I have loved your books for quite some time and follow you on Instagram.
    Thanks for being such an inspiration!

    When we are marking practical choices concerning our house I often end up thinking “what would Lloyd Kahn do?”. That sentence helps me rethink, get on with my problem solving, navigating guided by basic values, ecological, economical and esthetic. The outcome is often a simple solution, using stuff i already have instead of buying stuff or material.
    So now you know – in the suburbs of Stockholm there are at least two people (me and my husband) saying “what would Lloyd Kahn do”, like its a proverb. How’s that for an impact!
