Windswept Tree in Sonoma County

Every time I drive up to Point Arena to visit my friend Louie Frazier,* I admire this sculpture of wind and rock.

*which I’m gonna do in a few weeks, now that all us old people have been vaccinated.

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. Powerful important book , Nomadland by Jessica Bruder . I just saw the movie . The coast segment leapt at me with familiarity.

    It was filmed in Point Arena .

    Glad you and Lewie can visit . One more note ; Lesley’s Quilt knocked my socks off . Sending her a hug.
