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. Turkey vultures – I quibble; buzzards are “old world” critters- both are pretty cool. They migrate south for the winter from here in southern Ariz. When we see them arrive, it’s spring. Most folks know they are scavengers; they’re tremendous soarers and their eyesight is phenomenal- how’s anyone know that? Ed Abbey supposedly said that’s what he wanted to be reincarnated as. A great photo.
