Monday, April 1, I had a wonderful day driving down to Bolinas, California to visit Lloyd Kahn at his home and work at Shelter Publications. I wanted to get a glimpse of his new book that he has in progress called Tiny Homes on the Move.
On the way down I stopped briefly in Point Reyes Station and took a few photos. Then, I drove on out to Inverness to see an old boat I like to photograph when I am in the area and took some more photos. (you can view more of my iPhone photography here) The weather was perfect as it was right after a storm.
When I arrived Lloyd immediately started showing me the new book. He says it is about a third completed and that it is taking longer than anticipated because people who are featured in it are all around the globe. So it takes longer to get photos etc.
The book is going to be exciting, it features a lot of unique mobile type homes and many houses on the water. I have a snapshot of a couple of the rough pages below. Be sure and follow Lloyd’s blog to stay current on his progress.
After, we went down and had lunch in Bolinas at a sandwich shop and ate down by the water and visited.
When we got back to Lloyd’s home he gave me a tour of his workshop. He has a new work bench that looks perfect. One of Lloyd’s hobbies is making wooden spoons with old fashioned tools. He showed me a couple of neat hatchets he has for making the initial pieces of wood and some neat carving tools for notching out the spoons. Unfortunately, Lloyd had shoulder surgery not too long ago so he is not able to work on this hobby right now.
It had been a year or so since I had been to Shelter Publications. I am not going to wait so long to visit again. Thanks Lloyd for sharing your time and talents with me.
