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.

One Response to Laurel and Hardy

  1. i think these may be some sort of fibreglass composite (not wood), and mass produced in molds. I have had several along these lines, and one of one of these men (above) on similar bench, as well as had similar. When some klutz dropped same, the break looks to be some sort of fibreglass/similar composite. (still and all darn nice)
