Lloyd Kahn frequently writes about green and natural building  in his blog. From a reconstructed medieval cottage to fiberglass yurt, each design is fascinating. You’ll be inspired to let the builder in you get to work creating your own unique living space.

Kahn also has written Builders of the Pacific Coast, which features amazing architecture built from a variety of natural and repurposed materials. We’ll feature photos in our February/March 2009 issue.
