Why to Build Your Own Home

Imagine you were about to build your own home, perhaps with your own hands, and you wanted a few ideas of what others have done, so you set out around the world for 40 years visiting unusual homes, snapping pictures, making notes, and gathering evidence of homes that serve as a personal extension of the people living in them — the kind of home that is most satisfying both for the owner and for their guests — the kind of home you want.

You don’t have to do that now because Lloyd Kahn has done it for you. For far less in cost, and probably with far more effectiveness, Lloyd has collected homes that work for people. He has crammed a life-time of photos, notes, and insights into this amazing catalog, overflowing with wild, zany, practical ideas, hard-won evidence of successful homes in all cultures, chock-full of amazing glimpse of genius homes, owner-built glories, unique, one-of-a-kind, offbeat, think-different homes, mindful places, sketches of long-gone shelters, bits of building wisdom, and actual how-to-advice, all offered visually, in vast color plates, at a modest price for such an intense and dense tome. The entire aim of this book is to expand your notion of what your own house could be. It works.

At least once in their life everyone should make their own shelter. This is the book I would hand to them.

This is the last nail file you need to buy. Do yourself a favor by replacing those sandpaper disposables with Tweezerman’s 3in long Pedro Fina ceramic file. http://kk.org/cooltools/archives/1129

 It’s spooky to watch the hands whirl around until they find their spot as it adjusts itself in and out of daylight savings time, a chore worth at least its price. Someday all clocks and watches (and appliances!) will be this smart.

Curt Nelson found a storage solution for his small parts: plastic trays that fit perfectly inside an ammo can.
