An Earl Young House
Description: 1/500 @ f5.6 - 26mm - ISO 200
Earl Young lived most of his life in Charlevoix. He graduated from Charlevoix High School in 1908 and studied architecture at the University of Michigan for one year.
He built a number of homes in the Charlevoix, Michigan area, and each reflects his unusual style. The Ludington Daily News in October 13, 1971 issue said it this way:
“Sometimes the rooflines sweep so close to the ground that side windows are cut into them. The homes feature large fireplaces, generous use of stonework, and creative landscaping which helps the houses blend and snuggle into the hillsides.” Young told the newspaper’s writer, “I always build the roof first, and then shove the house under it.”
