From The Half-Acre Homestead: 46 Years of Building and Gardening

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. It’s a beauty. Thanks for sharing.

    (keep in mind i am not a sewer/quilter)….i have never seen a quilt with “moving” squares. Heretofore, they have always been “lined” up.

    These seem alive…almost as if you can feel the “movement”..No idea if it was a goal, or she was just striving for beautiful composition…But, it is very enticing.

    take care

  2. I’ve been referred to your site by my Daughter-in-Law and will be returning. As an 83 yr. old senior man on a fixed income, I save to buy items as gifts for my kids, and grandkids. I will be back to purchase a beautiful quilt for one or all.

  3. Lesley’s quilt (i commented above)
    sort of reminds me of/brings a similar feeling to mind of these artworks…

    there’s lots more artworks of “crooked” houses I’ve come across, just cant think of the artist. Leaves me with a whimsical heart.
