Jim and Shannon Youngstrom
LaBelle Lake all began in 1989 when Jim and Shannon Youngstrom purchased a large piece of land next to the Snake River. They had one little daughter at the time and one more on the way. The young couple started building their dream home in 1993. Jim and Shannon always encouraged their children to follow their dreams and work hard. They have been great examples of dreaming and building and never giving up. Since the beginning Jim has never stopped designing, creating and building this gorgeous log cabin and surrounding area. Together the couple raised six talented and successful children in this home and now are ready to share it with the world.
