Been working on the new house this week, building a fence and also packing things up in the old house. Here are some images I have been collecting from Lloyd Kahn’s Shelter II, inspiration for our own home. If you aren’t familiar with Kahn’s Shelter I highly recommend it, also check out the Dome Book.

The rest of the images here.

The WildWood recently got a mention on Lloyd Kahn‘s personal blog. This was a very kind nod from a somewhat hero of ours. For those of you who don’t know who Lloyd Kahn, he is a pioneer of the green building movement and he was among many things, the “Shelter” editor/contributor for the Whole Earth Catalog.

Heavily influenced by Bucky Fuller, he began building geodesic domes and published  Domebook and later Shelter which documented other home building methods found across the world. His writings and ideas of shelter building have been a huge influence and inspiration to many folks.

Examples of English frame construction types from Shelter.
