Water Tank in West Central Oregon

Shot this photo in August, 2017, on my way up to watch the total eclipse at the home of our friends Lew and Krystal in Prineville, Oregon. The sloping sides of the lower part are typical supports for the heaviness of the water tank at top.

(I’m posting things these days by going through my archives randomly and picking out shots that I think are of interest.)

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. Hey Lloyd,
    That water tower is close to wear my grandparents owned a farm along the O’Neil HWY (Oregon 370) west of Prineville. At one time there were many such structures, I do not know how many survived as I have not been down that highway for decades. Thank you for the memories.

  2. Lloyd, you might check the date stamp on that photo, the eclipse was in August of 2017. Time flies, don’t it?
