Missed Title: The Half-Acre Homestead

I just discovered a title that wasn’t catalogued that came out last March!


The Half-Acre Homestead: 46 Years of Building and Gardening (Paperback)
Lloyd Kahn
House & Home / Do-It-Yourself – General
ISBN: 9780936070810
Published: March 13, 2020


A few of you found it online. It is amazing (I heard this from some people who have seen it).

From Lloyd Kahn, the author of Shelter’s handmade homes books — you remember them, they sell like crazy. Kahn and his wife, Lesley, have made their entire homestead by hand on a small piece of land on the Northern California Coast over a 46-year period. They have never paid rent or a mortgage.

This is the perfect book for people who want to learn how to do these sorts of handmade things themselves. Includes over 500 photos. All the skills are in here from building, gardening, fencing, raising chickens (my plan for 2021 is to raise chickens!). This is a brand new one that is perfect for Covid times. It is available at PGC/Raincoast.
