A Little Bit of Our History
Yellowstone Log Homes history

Yellowstone Log Homes traces it's roots back to 1935 when Lewis Youngstrom started building mills and machinery for the wood working industry.

Lewis Youngstrom
Yellowstone log cabins history

In 1949 Lewis Youngstrom started a sawmill and logging operation in Spencer, Idaho. Although from the early years the mill was cutting some house logs, its main product was lumber, which was shipped throughout the west. By the mid 1950s the business moved to Dubois, Idaho and was looking for a new challenge.

In 1962, the first machined house logs were produced. This type of log with it's superior fit and finish, would forever change the business. Youngstrom Lumber would become Youngstrom Log Homes.

In 1976 Lewis was preparing to retire so he asked his sons Lynn and David what they wanted to do when he stepped down. The answer was simple—continue to make Log Homes! They knew the business and had made many contributions to the business over the years. Yellowstone Log Homes then started in Rigby, Idaho.

Lewis never did retire, but as he put it, "got re-treaded". Lewis continued a very active life of making house logs & inventing machinery until his passing in 1987.
