Logcabinslv.co.uk welcomes you to our New and Very Exciting Totally Bespoke Range And More for 2018
Firstly, we here at LogCabinsLV last year decided to design a new range of Log Timber Interlocking Cabins that gives “you” the choice for the very first time, to place “safely”, where ever you desire, our New High-Quality Premium Windows and Doors, without the extortionate pricing that has always been added to all bespoke log cabins, since day one.
Please check out our YouTube Channel and Subscribe.
So now, you have the ability to look through our huge range of Log Cabin Boxes, and our handcrafted excellent Quality Premium Windows and Doors. And design your own amazing space.
The great thing about our range is that you can now pick a cabin, then add the windows and doors, and put them where you want, and really price the building to your budget.
You can also add a window or door. at a later date, if say your budget this year allows you to purchase a 5.0m x 3.0m log cabin and only one of our high-quality strong single fully glazed doors, then fine, next year add the windows. No Problem.
Also, our new bespoke range allows you now to really forget cheap clad sheds, and buy yourself a small 3.0 m x 3.0 m log cabin manufactured from solid 44mm timber and then add a solid door anywhere you wish, the perfect lock up that will last the test of time!
70% of log cabins are bespoke, reasons vary, but normally its because of a garden path, hedge, tree, neighbors wall etc, and 99% of companies will charge you anywhere from 25% to 50% to take a window out or move a door, and in most cases they will remove a window and still charge you more?
As you will see, we have taken our time, namely, 14 months to actually design each and every cabin, and show you where it is safe to add one of our great windows and doors, you will notice that we have marked out on the walls where it is safe to place
Because we take what we do very seriously, we will, of course, look at each and every order, and make sure that each and every log cabin is fit for purpose.
Please do not hesitate to look at our amazing 70mm Deluxe Range of under 2.5m log cabins, each and every log is hand-picked and our Deluxe Range comes with superb quality residential standard windows and doors.
Please do not hesitate to send us an email if you have any questions.

NEW…Totally Bespoke Log Cabins Range LV
Our new range of ‘’bespoke Log Cabins’’ sets a higher standard for the market to follow. Our market leading range not only gives you the ability to really tailor the design of your desired garden room, office, play area, or granny annex, (or whatever you have in mind,) it actually allows you also to buy a unique space that fits your budget and is exactly what you require. Start by picking the cabin shape and style that suits your budget, then add the windows and doors, and have them fitted exactly where you want them! If at a later date you want to add more windows or doors, you can, and fitting them is easy.
We also offer replacement windows for your existing log cabin regardless of who manufactured it; please check our sizes to find out if we have your size in stock.
Check out our Face Book page…
For example, if you have a £5000 budget, you know the size of the cabin you need, the height it must conform to, where your garden path and other obstructions are located like a tree, or a hedge, even your neighbors wall, it’s almost impossible to find exactly what you need…..either online or in the high street. You may choose to go to a company with your design, they make silly little noises and say that because of this and that, it will cost (X), and (X) and is normally a crazy price. They try and get you to purchase something that ….
1. they have in stock or
2. they make slight modifications to a model they produce and charge you 50% more.
Pricing on most bespoke log cabins has always annoyed me; the prices for bespoke design cabins have always seemed to be exceedingly high. Also, I have never understood why so many companies design log cabins with far too many windows? It kills internal usable wall space. Get what you want at a regular price by buying directly from the factory.
So…. the whole idea behind our new range of bespoke log cabins is to allow “YOU ” the customer, to really have total control, of both your design and of course the pricing. Quality isn’t a variable it comes as standard!
Pricing is, of course, a major concern with members of the public realizing as the years go by, more and more bulk and cheaply manufactured log cabins are rotting away in their friend or neighbors garden; we believe that customers spending £500, or even £1000 more and truly getting a very high-quality bespoke log cabin or timber frame building is the sensible way to go, rather than purchasing a pile of timber which will be used for a bonfire one night in the distant future!
The problem with today’s market is that 99% of companies on the internet are volume manufacturers and most are not set up for one-off bespoke designs, so when you ask them for a personalized and quality bespoke design this disrupts their factory mass production lines. This is why their pricing is just simply crazy, their lead times are 8 to 12 weeks; however there is something else you must remember, these factories mass produce cheap windows and doors, which is why you never see close-up photos, or if you do their quality is sadly lacking or misleading! This is where we win hands down.
The longevity of your timber building really does depend on how long the windows and doors last, if they fail, the cabin fails, be it timber frame or a log structure.
OUR OFFER TO YOU.(more)
Our LV Deluxe Log Cabin range is superior in every way and there is a good reason for this.
Firstly the timber is winter cut pine, which is not just tight grained but is also an excellent timber for accepting wood stain.
All our cabins in the Deluxe Range are manufactured from amazing timber and cut only to a 70mm thickness wall log.
Every single log is handpicked, every single part of the cabin be it the 28mm floorboard or the 19mm roof boards, bearers, walls boards, windows, and doors are checked to make sure that they are perfect in every way.
Our LV Deluxe range of log cabins are all under 2.5m high, which normally means you do not have to apply for planning permission. However, it is best you check with your local council.
What really does make the LV Deluxe Range of log cabins special? It could possibly be because they precision manufactured log cabins, or that they come with 28mm flooring as standard. or that the LV designs are possibly the most sought after in the UK, also Deluxe LV Cabins come standard Superb Quality Residential Windows and Doors, which are the best in the industry.
All our windows and doors are manufactured using the latest computerized CNC window and door line, plus they are professionally sprayed, to any colour you want from the Ral chart.
So many people do not realize that the windows and doors are actually the most important integral part of a log cabin, once they begin to fail, the cabin normally starts to fall apart, you will start getting water ingress and then sadly rot will set in, then comes blue stain and dangerous mould. Most windows and doors on bulk manufactured log cabins are not manufactured to last the test of time, they are manufactured to a price point.
What is fact, is that all bulk cabin manufacturers are in this business to make as much profit as possible, and sadly the quality benchmark for most log cabin manufacturers is to be just a bit better than a basic shed.
I know it seems as if I am harping on greatly on the quality of windows and doors, but it is very important that when purchasing a log cabin, or a timber frame building, that these parts of the kit are manufactured to the best they can be, this is why LogCabinslv.co.uk should be your only choice.

Residential Timber Frame Buildings
Our sectional buildings provide a wide range of both Residential and Commercial properties. You can choose from our standard range or we can build to your exact specification.
Reception areas, Hotels, Office Buildings, Detached Houses, Apartments, whatever your interests we are able to respond to your requirements.
Sectional Buildings bring an enormous increase in the scope of design allowing for more natural light to filter into the property.
With modern technology at its best, we build such properties with absolute minimal heat loss, thus providing an extremely economical way of life for heat retention throughout the year.
This is mainly due to the extremely effective insulation installed which also minimises outside sound, thus allowing the occupants a quiet, pleasant, tranquil experience.
Our sectional buildings are pleasant to the eye, with fresh clean designs that provide spacious accommodation and/or working environment which is so important for quality of life. Please follow the link.
Residential Type Multi-Room Log Cabins
If you are looking for an exceptional quality type residential log cabin, then logcabinslv.co.uk can offer superb timber structures.
Our medium to large residential type log cabins are manufactured using the latest CNC machinery, which always delivers precise molding, cutting, and engineered wood structures each and every time.
Our Residential-Type Cabins can be designed to your individual needs. We offer a full turnkey solution. If you are looking for a quality multi-room building then please have a look at our range.
We are currently producing the first of our new design model which blends the camping market with the garden room and hotel rooms market. This flexible and new modular design offers the space and style of a hotel room with the ability to finish the decoration to your colours and style using the plasterboard internal walls, the design gives much more vertical and flat wall space on which to place furniture, pictures or other decorations and structurally it has a 5 year warranty and top class insulation that makes most garden rooms shiver at the thought.
Our new modular accommodation building has been codenamed Qubix as we originally set out to design a cube based building but it has evolved into this really attractive unit which in our opinion can be used anywhere. The room height is under 2.5m falls within garden buildings criteria and also fits onto a standard transport lorry.
The size and use of the finished modular building are only limited by the imagination and our ability to help you to solve your accommodation requirements. It can have a full bathroom fitted, the example we have of the 4.8m x 8m model with a veranda makes a very attractive Glamping or Bed & Breakfast accommodation room for wedding venues, country houses or golf courses.
We have put together a few sample options, one is like a railway carriage, long and sleek with space for everything; the smaller 4.8m x 4m Glamping unit offers a full bathroom and double bed possibilities without really trying. The camping market is very active, it is moving onwards and upwards in terms of what customers are requiring and this is the start of a new generation of pod++ buildings. Did I say Pod++, cancel that ……..this is Qubix quality at an affordable price. (More)
LV Glamping Camping Pods
Logcabinslv.co.uk is probably the world leader in producing and distributing camping pods. In the very early days, we realized that the old style tunnel effect pod was inadequate and created the unique side entry door model which allows a much more flexible use of the space. It also has a stylish and elegant appearance that consumers prefer to the old style models.
We offer a 5-year structural warranty on these models and those new clients who haven’t had seen one before theirs arrives are often heard to say ‘ it’s a lot better than I thought’. It does exceed expectations and we do keep adding and developing the range to reflect the changing requirements of the market.
Our new Glamping Pod, Giga pod call it what you like, it is the most flexible and best value high-end unit around. We have designed it to be modular so that the range goes from good size to supersize with enough space and facilities to live in. Our first 2 major client sites have both opened this year and look stunning. The move towards having a bathroom in the pod has become the new baseline and we offer residential level space and facilities, not just a squashed room. Full size 9900mm quadrant showers, vanity basin, and full toilet unit make for an enjoyable experience whilst the Velux windows offer a grown-up feature which is valued by users and could be a showcase for Velux.
The range uses the same blueprint, long life materials, and the new style is literally a larger version of the well-established euro pod.
The Britmet roof tiles which have a galvanized base and finished with granules to give a real lightweight roof with anti-vandal properties and 40 years warranty against ……. The internal structural arches are not covered like most of the pods but are exposed to create a real vaulted ceiling which can be a highlighted feature in the cabins.
The insulation in the floor is consistent across the range with 100mm Knauf being added in the suspended floor void; the walls have 50mm insulation AND depending on the model TLX Silver added as standard or an optional extra. This really steps up the comfort level in both hot and cold weather. In summer the Velux windows and be left on the vent latch or opened to create through air flows to suit.
The standard Euro pod range can have tilt and turn windows to suit your intended use, these also act as a fire escape in the event of difficulties; there is a fully closed and sealed option or the use of a micro vent which allows limited air to enter and leave the building without having the window open.Where pods are required for domestic use ancillary to the main dwelling (such as a home office) then planning permission is not required. However, you are advised to seek confirmation from the local planning authority.

Time To Get a Structural Report.
We have decided to write this article (rather than a blog) to explain the massive pitfalls of going to a bulk manufacturer and buying what they describe as a Residential Log Cabin.
What really annoys us more than anything, is that after you have read all the deception written on certain websites you then judge every honest company that actually do offer structural energy efficient timber buildings– residential timber buildings- be it in Log or Timber Frame as overpriced, because you have seen a “large garden cabin” which is sold under the deception-guise of being a residential building for some ridiculously low price.
The saying that you get what you pay for is all too true here.
It is seriously Time to Wake Up!
A solid log in 44mm or even a 34mm x 34mm log cabin will never, ever, pass building regulations, the same applies to a solid log in 44mm x 44mm, and the reason for this is quite simple, it’s called weight bearing, U values, heat loss, movement and structural. They all fail miserably. If you go to many websites, you will notice they use the word Residential. They are quite clearly misleading the public, and this should then put everything else on their website under a cloud of doubt and mistrust.
Sadly there is no governing body that jumps on this kind of fraud, yet this kind of fraud brings in Millions of pounds every year for the manufacturers and leaves believing unsuspecting honest customers with a building that is not in anyway fit for purpose.
If you would like a residential log cabin, then please think about a 80mm x 80mm Glulam log, or a highly insulated timber frame building as these kind of structures will pass all regulations, and structural calculations and remember to have a UK structural engineer, sign off on all drawings, plans given to you, and not from some guy who works in a mill in “Europe somewhere”. This is not a nationalist ‘rant’ but extremely sound advice.
Structure reports cost around +/- £500. Which is not a lot if you are thinking of spending £40.000 plus on what really could be a glorified garden shed.
The reason we say ask a qualified UK engineer, is that one, the UK rules and regs are different to Europe, Two he will be insured and can be taken to hand if something is wrong, and three, if the mill has used the words residential, and then the UK engineer makes his assessment, you will then see 99.9% of everything you were told was ” false”, and the building you thought was a residential log building is sadly not!!…. But you do then have the plans and a structural report, which you then can give to a more open and honest manufacturer.
At logcabinslv.co.uk, we offer a full turnkey solution, our ability to offer all timber build types, keeping pricing realistic, not cutting corners, and being responsible for our manufacturing, work, and finished product.
