Larry Haun

Larry Haun began his building career on the Nebraska prairie, where at 17 he helped to build his first house. In 1951, he joined his older brother in a Los Angeles building boom that brought about rapid change in tools, materials and building methods. Retired now in Coos Bay, Ore., Haun builds houses for Habitat for Humanity and backpacks in the High Sierras, the Rockies and the Andes. He is the author of How to Build a House, with three companion videos on how to frame a house.
