Half Acre Homestead
Lloyd Kahn has been producing books on building for 50 years now and here, for the first time, he relates his own building experiences.
The Half-Acre Homestead is a record, with over 500 color photos, of Lloyd and his wife Lesley’s owner-built home and garden. They show you what the house and garden look like, how various functions (solar panels, septic systems, skylights, etc.) operate, and tools they use in the kitchen, garden, and shop.
There are recipes and sections on fishing and foraging.
There are descriptions of raised beds, raising chickens, and collecting rainwater.
There are photos of Lesley’s quilts, weavings, and baskets.
Also shown are flowers, vegetables, birds, and spiderwebs.
There is advice for anyone thinking of building a home these days.
by Lloyd Kahn & Lesley Creed
