Earl Young and the Mushroom House

This is an example of a Mushroom house in Charlevoix, Michigan. The "mushroom" style seems to just evolve right out of the ground and their roofs take on the shape of a mushroom. The craftsmanship in these homes is bad ass, especially coming from a guy with no formal architectural background. His name is Earl Young. The emphasis of the design is based on handcrafted materials. The style is influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement. This particular remodel was by Dufner Heighes architects, the builder is Glenwood Custom Builders. Both the architect and builder have some really good interior shots on their sites.
