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. Does the slingshot mask also contain the 70 million Americans who voted for President Tump and the facts that there were no new American wars in four years and peace in the Middle East? Time to heal by recognizing the good as well as the bad.

    1. Yeah, peace in the middle east between Israel and the United Arab Emirates — who the Israelis were never at war with anyway. Only problem is the Palestinians — 2.8 million of whom are under Israeli military rule in the West bank — were left out out the equation.

      1. Sudan too. A diplomatic peace treaty does not come into being just to end a hot military war. It pushes that type of conflict further out on the horizon and allows for the freer exchange of goods, ideas, people, and humanitarian aid. The Palestinian issue has been unresolved since WWII. Does President Trump really care about the Palestinians? I doubt it. But with his oversized ego (even for a president) he would relish in being known as the president who solved this important problem. Just maybe the plan was to make Israeli as comfortable as possible by creating peace treaties with surrounding nations and giving them favors like moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and than twisting Israel’s arm with a powerful force to make them accept uncomfortable concessions to the Palestinians to create a diplomatic peace treaty. Of course as America becomes more energy independent and will no longer need Middle Eastern oil the whole issue of peace in this area becomes less important to America.

  2. There were no wars the last four years because we weren’t busy saving our own democracy .no time to save others for democracy. The people have spoken twice. A majority didn’t want him the first time. Now a bigger majority plus electoral college will say it again . Byedon

  3. We are less than two months into the new administration. Can any true peacenik be happy about the current international developments? Way, way, way, less important but no doubt everyone on this thread considers themselves to be a environmentalist, I need to ask… who picks up the spent bullets?
