The Thatch House rose from the original stone walls set by Earl Young. Originally built as his first home in 1918, the original house did not encompass Young's developing unique hobbit-home style, but today, in a dramatic re-imagining, The Charlevoix Thatch House exemplifies the storybook magic of the Earl Young mushroom homes. The new fairy tale design, conceived on a napkin by the new owner, took nearly 2 years to finalize.
Specialized timber work, beautifully erected with every beam layer, is unique and bold. The beautiful flowing roof is crafted from the finest natural thatch hand-reaped in Europe and shipped to the USA. During one of the coldest winters, a master thatcher painstakingly worked under daunting conditions, so that symbolically the new creation was ready to greet the new spring with new life. As a surprised observer said, "Wow, that home looks like a giant mushroom!"
