I bought a Mother Earth News magazine today just for the article by Lloyd Kahn on ‘Inspiring Handmade Homes’. Read his fascinating blog and explore these magical abodes. I’m impressed by his writing and his travels, and the fact that most of the northern California and Pacific Northwest builders began these structures back in the late 60′s, 70′s… with no money. I’d love to live in any one of these, but especially the ones with a sauna!

Kahn is the founder of Shelter Publications, an independent publishing company. He also worked with Stewart Brand on the Whole Earth catalog, which was a bible for all of us back to the land’ers.
At 72, he still surfs, skiis and skateboards.
