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. have seen this where I live, (every yr now for few yrs), and read many articles of other cities doing same

    Great stuff. Good for environment (no chemicals), and free fertilizer (grin).

    sometimes it is goats/sometimes sheep. Guess it depends on what needs clearing/how short. I think I read sheep get stuff very short, close to ground. Goats more interesting in shrubs and higher weeds..?

  2. Lloyd, this doesn’t fit with this post, just thought you might be interested. Also, wondered if you had any idea if this is possibly accurate? Having a hard time believing 4,500 bears were killed (pardon me euthanized) in B.C. by ORDER…

    Had no idea B.C. conservation officers ordered to kill 4500 bears….And had to read it in British News…

    This man was fired for protecting two baby bears, (eventually released back to wild)

    In this legal action he was (five yrs legal battle) found innocent and awarded costs,

    so guess his legal bills are paid. Really, I think he should have been give five years of salary.

    Most Canadians have no idea how this is run, and the number of KILLED bears…4500, wow..scandalous.

    In January, the conservation group Pacific Wild, which works with Casavant,
    found that more than 4,500 bears had been killed by conservation officers in the province over the last eight years, including 4,341 black bears.

    Where the heck are the animal activists?
