From over at Smith Journal, Lloyd's Blog is one of my favorites!


14 decby nadia
LLoyd Kahn reckons he isn't the DIY poster guy, but that is bullocks. He's the man who first published Shelter in 1973 and helped fuel a movement.
Kahn has built three houses of his own and published many more books on related topics, his latest:Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter.
Inside, you'll find pages of people who have built stuff themselves and are pretty happy about it. There are cabins in the woods, smaller dwellings in cities, granny flats and multi-storey homes; many of them put together for under $50,000. (There's also a guy who built and fitted out his place for $1000, which is bonkers.)

"It's unrealistic to be 100 per cent self sufficient, but you can probably learn and do more of it than you think," said Kahn when we spoke to him for a story in theSmith five. "We've been going in the direction of larger for the last couple of decades. Now the idea is to go smaller."

Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter can be found at good bookstores and shops, such as Third Drawer Down. It's also available oniPad and through the Shelter Publications website.
Kahn is part of "Starting Small", a feature in the latest Smith. Buy volume five here, find your closest stockist here, or subscribe here.

About Me

My photo
I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
