This book is even better than Home Work, which I loved. Lloyd Kahn spent three years travelling along the Pacific Coast to visit all sorts of wonderful handmade homes from Northern California to Canada. Many of them use alternative building styles, while others are built traditionally but with especial care and craftsmanship. The photographs are amazing, drawing the viewer into each house and emphasizing all the astonishing details. I got so many ideas and inspirations from this book, and am hugely envious of the builders who possess such skill and motivation.

This book is a fantastic visual extravaganza for anyone who takes the expression,"living in harmony with nature," seriously. Inspiring creativity! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0936070439, Paperback)

A continuation of Lloyd Kahn’s journeys into the creative processes of owner-built homes — their innovative techniques, use of sustainable materials, and essential dedication to the natural elements surrounding their designs — Builders of the Pacific Coast explores the aesthetics and skills of three master builders in California, Washington state, and the rugged terrain of British Columbia. The three featured craftsmen — Lloyd House, Bruce Atkey, and Sun Ray Kelley — combine imaginative architecture with innovative contexts: everything from unusual house-boats to sculptural dwellings made of driftwood are included. With stunning color and black-and-white photographs, as well as detailed black-and-white drawings of the homes, this collection of unique and progressive designs creates a template for a future filled with forward-thinking architecture.
