When we manufactured the first ever Clock House we had no idea that after 8 years it would become such an iconic garden building. Our first clock house was 4.8m x 3.6 and what a beautiful clock house it was, but as always, our log cabins are bespoke and transformed.

Our Log Cabins have teeth, they are not run of the mill massed produced rubbish, they are manufactured to be the best of the best, and they have that English Heritage edge that is sadly lacking in so many cabins that adorn our UK gardens.


This amazing Clock House is not just an amazing spacious office, or a hot tub sauna and relaxation spa area, maybe a combination of all.

Twin Skin Log Cabins 19-02-16

quality log cabins, twin skin log cabins

If you are looking to purchase a twin skin log cabin what do you need to know before you hand your money over.

Today’s blog is going to help you decide if the company that you are speaking to at the moment about purchasing a twin skin log cabin is the right company!Kerry Twin Skin Log Cabin  19-02-1673

Firstly, does the company in question have experience in manufacturing, do they have years of experience, and have they been bankrupt?

Are they over charging you, and lining their pockets with you hard earned money?

Is the specification of the twin skin cabin as good as they proclaim?

And how do you find out, how do you find if the company in question is just a flyby night company, here today and gone tomorrow!

I am truly sorry if I am giving this industry a bad name, but sadly, there are many companies in this business that should not be!

What I hate, and I mean I hate is a company that comes into this industry to just solely earn money, no other reason.Kerry Twin Skin Log Cabin  19-02-1674

What they normally do is buy in cheap and then offer all the bells and whistles, free stain, or roofing material and then sell with a 45% to 60% mark up!

This truly annoys me, not because the company is earning money, but because the cabin is not worth the sale value.

This really does annoy me, it truly does, and that is why our partners-dealer are the best in the business, as we want the savings we make at the mill travel down the line to the end customers.

Our twin skin cabins come in 1 bed,2 bed, 3 bed, 4 bed, and 5 bedrooms.

They all come with residential windows and doors which are certified CE and Trada, as standard.Kerry Twin Skin Log Cabin  19-02-1675

Actually this blog would be huge if I wrote our specification, but what I can say, is that our new Twin Skin Designs and they way they are manufactured completely blows the competition out of the water! If you are looking for a quality Twin skin log cabin, please send us an email and we will endeavor to come back to you quickly with a great price and amazing quality!

Deluxe Log Cabins – 18-2-2016

Garden Log Cabins quality. log cabins, logcabins


It’s quite a nervous time for any company when one launches something new and which costs slightly more knowing that the market is very price sensitive, and sadly most log cabins look like each other, no matter how you dress them up.


Nevertheless, I would like to report that our New Deluxe Range of Log Cabins are quite literally flying off the production line.


So many people have asked us why we have not priced the new deluxe range of log cabins higher, and our answer to this is we are Not German..And our BUILDINGS ARE FAR SUPERIOR!


I know a few of you out there will laugh at that, but seriously, why price log cabins so high in the belief that the public will purchase them because they are mega expensive.


It was Hitler that said, It’s great for governments that men don’t think, well he was wrong about a lot of things, and now the public have access to the internet, and they also understand quality from crap they can see that our deluxe range is the best standard range of log cabins available on the internet.

garden timber buildings, timber cabins, log cabins

So how do you keep your log cabin in perfect condition, I am asked this daily, and so many dealers have their own preferred treatments, but I truly think there is really only one treatment to keep the cabin warm and dry no matter what the weather.


If anyone out there is not aware, log cabins are manufactured from wood, wood is very porous, and that’s where the problems begins. You need to seal the timber, you need to stop mother nature finding her way in!


Log Cabins have a flaw, and that is the locking system on the corners, it’s a wind trap, and as the weather in Europe, UK becomes wetter and wetter, and the wind stronger, its almost like putting a pressure hose against the cabin wall and keeping your fingers crossed that the water does not find its way in!


So there are two solutions, firstly when purchasing a log cabin, you need to make sure that the corners of the cabin have steel rods, these rods go through a pre drilled holes in each and every log and once the walls are built you tighten the walls down, this makes the corners almost waterproof, also it makes the walls of the cabin stronger.

All our deluxe Log Cabins come with rods as standard.. industry first!

Next, Yacht Varnish Clear Finish is what I would recommend to seal the cabin.

Ronseal do an amazing product, and it’s worth giving the cabin at least 3 coats,

high quality log cabins, logcabin, cabins, cabin

timber quality log cabins, amazing quality cabins, log cabins, log cabin

Long lasting protection

Waterproofs and protects from the sun

Resists cracking, peeling and blistering

Traditional Yacht Varnish


In addition, yacht varnish has elasticity that is perfect for cabins.


You need to really stain the ends of the logs heavily as this is a moisture trap, and you need to really coat the cabin walls well! As the windows and doors are already pre-sprayed in the factory you then have only the walls to concern yourself with.

I did this to a twin skin we have at the factory and it has been buried in snow and rained on and had our very hot summer suns bleaching it, or trying to, and its still as good as the day it came of the production line.



Its really important to stain the building correctly, and to make sure the corner locking system is very well stained.

As the weather changes, its only common sense that we change how we protect our buildings-investment.

One of the amazing things you can do with clear yachting varnish is paint your deluxe log cabin any colour you want, you can then clear varnish it, and bob’s your uncle you have a cabin looking like the two in this article.

Deluxe Residential Log Cabins


quality residential log cabins

If you are looking for a quality bespoke custom made residential log cabin, then please have a look at our huge range, we are able to offer not just amazing quality but also unbeatable pricing.

Deluxe Residential Log Cabin LV 2016 2

There are so many companies offering residential log cabins now on the internet, yet if you were to really start from base bearers up and examine the full specification on most so called residential log cabins, you may be shocked to learn that 99.9% of residential log cabins are actually not!

Deluxe Residential Log Cabin LV 2016 3

Firstly, its impossible to get a twin skin log cabin 44mm x 44mm through building regulations, as firstly the timber will not stand up any form of stat rating, and sadly the timber is not thick enough, there are some companies that will offer this as a residential size, pass these companies by, and look for companies that actually understand what they are talking about.


80mm x 80mm glulam with 150mm insulation is actually the thinnest one could go to meet building regulations, sadly though there are not many companies that offer this kind of engineered timber.


Glulam logs must be manufactured using non-toxic glue, must be manufactured under accreditation, and have grading values. This is necessary unless you want your logs to split at the ends and the whole cabin to fail.


Sadly a lot of mills that manufacturer Log cabins are just that, and to cut costs they will manufacturer their own glulam using off cuts and ungraded timber.


How can you know, well, if your cabin shows up and the longest log say 6m in length has more than 2 bits of timber in it, then its home made, also you are able to ask the mill for accreditation and grading on their logs, if they are unable to offer this, then my suggestion is to stay well clear!


As always I always say we are the best, and I am sure a lot of you are fed up with hearing this, but at we do try and do our best to offer the best, not the cheapest. I would rather sell 10 less cabins a week by telling the truth and offering better, than offer crap and have 10 miserable customers asking themselves what the f—k have they bought!


Unlike most log cabin companies that just stand still offering the same old models year after year, Log Cabins LV moves forward, pushing the quality always forward and upwards, offering high quality buildings-Log Cabins.

This year with our New Deluxe Range we have we believed hit the highest point any cabin company has ever reached.

Firstly we can offer as standard certified double glazed tilt and turn residential windows and high quality, insulated double, single doors, spray painted to your choice of color.

We are able to offer residential log cabins with full building regulations; we can offer a professional fixing team to install.


Sadly in the UK most fixing teams that install log cabins are sadly not skilled enough to install our new deluxe range, we have now had to retrain our fixing teams to understand how to assemble a quality log cabin.


Sadly a lot of fixing-assembly teams believe a nail gun can solve most problems, when in doubt, nail, if in doubt, nail. This is one reason why so many log cabins last such a short time as the way they were assembled hastily and badly.

Our deluxe log cabins are not just amazing, they are the first ever log cabins manufactured by a house manufacturer, and because of this the quality and build skill is not coming from a converted pig sty in Kaunas, but a factory that understand how to manufacture quality.


Our NEW Deluxe Residential Log Cabins are unequal and are built to last a life time.

If you are looking for a company that actually tells the truth, is willing to help you through planning and other issues you may have, then Log Cabins LV is here to help!

Log Cabins in Ireland 2016


log cabins lv



Its really funny when I read a blog on facebook from a ex-bankrupt log cabin dealer in Ireland telling customers how he is going to bring the price of supply only off the self log cabins down!


Is this the same dealer who ran away from a customer last year, went bankrupt rather than sort out the problems, and left a poor woman with a log cabin not fit for purpose! If anyone would like to know who she is, please just ask me for her number!


This industry is truly full of nasty, evil, crooked scum that sees a trick and a flaw and capitalizes on it!

Who run away from problems and would rather bankrupt their company and start afresh than pay-fix problems which were caused by their shoddy workmanship.

Actually, I blame the government for allowing this kind of disgusting behavior. However, if you pay your taxes, well! They look the other way!


The moral of this story is always check up on Google about companies, the simple way is just put into search.. Bad review of__________ company.

Also ask if the company has ever been bankrupt.


What tends to happen in Ireland is that they open a company in the south, and if it all goes Pete Tong, they bankrupt the company and then open up one in the North.

We have dealers in Ireland that are family run companies, have been operating for years, and have a great reputation.


I am pleased to announce also that we have 2 new dealers coming on board with us from the north and the south this year. So Ireland is going to have a new range of amazing buildings, with superb quality, and at amazing prices.


I hate pushing the point, as really it’s up to the customer to do the homework, but there are a few companies in Ireland, that are dangerous to say the least to give money to. Never pay fully for a building if it’s costing you 50,000 Euros, keep the fitting work money back till the job is done, then go to each and every wall, door, window, roof etc and make sure it’s all done correctly, also make sure the foundations are correct, then pay!

There comes along a log cabin that really does make me smile, its difficult having a favorite as we have so many amazing log cabin designs on our website, yet year by year a log cabin pops up in the right size, right specification that just is the perfect size and shape!

amazing double glazed windows and doors for our deluxe range of log cabins

Amazing windows and doors, from , trada certified windows and doors.


Maybe I am bias, as we were the first to design, manufacture the clock house, which is as I always say copied by all, but mastered by none, also we were the first to come to market with the Twin Skin Log Cabin System, this has also been copied by all, and a few do a great job!

Overall, we are the leading light in designs when it comes to quality log cabins, and as you will notice so many before and I guess all will copy us in the future!

So here is one of my favorites which I think is the right size and actually right price.

Our 4.5m x 4.0 Deluxe DF log cabin is fitted with the best windows and doors in the industry!

I get so fed up reading claims from companies, especially in Ireland, where they proclaim that their 44m x 4mm twin skins are residential quality, as is the windows and doors!

amazing hardware and fantastic windows and doors all available from log cabins lv


If you live in Ireland, and you see any company proclaiming this, ask them also to show you a 5-leaf clover!

I was wading through a website yesterday, and I must admit I need to report them, as the windows and doors were absolute (rubbish) and the way this company proclaims a 44m x 4mm twin skin stands up to building regs, I just wonder why the local authority is not arresting for fraud.

Remember this, when purchasing a residential log cabin, its not about the quality of the timber, or how much insulation they pack into the walls, its about so much more.

Firstly, double glazed residential windows and doors, that sounds amazing yes!

Well! its only part of the U value, the frame work of the windows and doors should also have a u value and be certified, not just the double glazed pane!

This is where it’s a con, as a certified window is designed for fire, and that’s all about the frame and mechanism. 99.9% of companies that sell log cabins sell crap! And that the truth.

Did I just put the Cat among the Pigeons?

Too many customers get caught out here, and this is why our blog upsets everyone!

I have a feeling tonight-there will be a few companies that will be changing their claims on windows and doors.

Trading standards should do a better job to be honest!


Our Deluxe Range of Log Cabins come standard with amazing quality certified windows and doors, we do not just slot our windows into the cabin and that’s that.

If you buy cheap you buy twice, and if you buy cheap you might as well forget about wasting good timber, and purchase a log lap shed rather than purchase a log cabin and waste precious timber resources.


OK.. Getting back to one of my favorite cabins, this amazing little cabin has quality double glazed windows, which are tilt and turn, and not forgetting are certified, plus the hardware, the door handles, and tilt and turn mechanism are top quality, certified and fit for use.


The frame work on these are not just bits of old timber stuck together, as most mills will use off cuts to manufacturer their windows and doors, we don’t, we use only joinery glulam redwood, this stops the windows and doors from twisting and also give unimaginable strength!


Our Windows and doors are not just the best in the business; they come standard in our new Deluxe Range.

Our Log Cabins from our standard Deluxe Range of Log Cabins are not just fitted with amazing quality windows and doors, they are also out fitted with over sized purlins, they come standard with metal rods to tighten down the cabin, they also come with 20mm roofing boards and 28mm floor boards.

The Deluxe Range comes with so many extras which other companies charge as extra’s..

Glulam Deluxe Log Cabins

The biggest problem with garden log cabins is the span you are able to accomplish with solid log walls. When the foresters go into the woods with their transport to fell the trees, they are restricted to a maximum of 6m in length, once they have trimmed the logs down, you are then left normally with timber length of 5.9m.

So if you wanted a single room log cabin with was say 8m x 8m then you would have to have a but end, to but end, and a false wall.

Many people, who are looking to turn their log cabins into snooker rooms, find this false wall a nuisance, as it hinders play.

In addition, if you are looking for an aerobic hall, or just a play area, then these false walls do cause problems.

Also this problem of log locking really does cause a serious headaches in large garages, where cars like Range Rovers, etc are concerned.

So, what is the solution?

Engineered Glulam Logs are the answer, as it’s possible to manufacture these logs to 13m.

We are able to offer a 72mm Glulam log, which means spans of 8m are easily achievable.

Which comes standard with our New Trada Certified double glazed windows and doors, CE accredited.

If you really want that Perfect Log Cabin, or a timber garage, then really the only people you want to talk to is us.

We manufacture not the best log cabins in the business; we have the largest range in the industry!

We have for many years tried our hardest to bring to market a range of log cabins that does not just put every manufacturer to shame in quality level and price, but also in design.

We now have without doubt the best log cabins on the web!

Log Cabins in Koln

Garten Haus - Log Cabins LV

Log Cabins Germany

Carnival in Koln at the weekend was amazing, but my real reason for going to Germany was to scout out the log cabin competition, and to check the quality level German companies offer to their public.

Before I start the review I am in no way bias, I am just reporting what I saw!

Firstly, the size of cabins on display seems to be between 3m x 3m up to 5m x 4m, 5m x 6m and they are all painted, and this surprised me, but then I realized why they painted them all.


There are many German companies manufacturing Log Cabins, but in all honesty, their quality level is quite disappointing, that is not to say all Log Cabins manufactured by German Companies are awful, I can only comment on what I saw.

The reason they paint in partly is to cover up the large dark dead knots, and in most cabins, there were plenty of these, and surprisingly there was damp and water ingress in nearly all the displays.


What’s amazing though is that prices were compatible to the UK.

OK German only has 19% vat, add the extra 1% and Germany is on par with the UK in pricing, yet with out doubt our UK quality levels are 25% better than what is on offer to the public in Germany.

Our New Range of Deluxe Log Cabins would if entered into the German market cause a stir, as there is nothing offered or available at our level of quality and pricing in the country!

Here in the Baltic’s we manufacture the best log cabins in the industry, secondly there are only a few of us up here that make excellent log cabins.


But!!! If you are looking for the best Log Cabins that have the highest of all quality, and offers so much more, with the highest build specification, a company that has more dealers worldwide and also offers timber frame housing Passive- Non Passive, Holiday accommodation or camping pods, plus our amazing glulam log cabins, then the only choice really is

Log Cabin Man Cave!

quality log cabins man caves

log cabins, cabins, cabin, logcabins, man caves

How many of you out there want to own that log cabin man cave at the bottom of the garden, to get away from screaming children, maybe the wife, to have your friends round and have a game of pool, or just sit at your own bar, smoke a cigar and watch the TV in peace?

Man caves over the last few years have become quite the rage, but when you look back at the first man caves offered in log form, you will start to notice that the doors and windows are falling apart, and the windows get steamed up every time the footballs on!

Last month I had a guy call me and send me a photo of his man cave, and trust me when I say this, the cabin was a mess, not just a mess, it was without joking sadly awful. He told me that he wanted to add an extension, and I told him honestly that it was only fit for a bonfire.

Now the reason I am writing this blog today, is not to laugh at his dilemma, but to make a point about log cabins and what is fit for purpose and what is not!

If you want to own a man cave then there are a few things you must take into account before you decide to purchase a cheap bulk manufactured cabin.

Cheap nasty cabins come with cheap nasty doors, these doors normally are manufactured with cheap pine, and cheap pine will twist eventually, plus cheap pine windows will also twist but more than that, they will leak.

Windows and doors are actually more than 70% of the overall quality of a log cabin, and when purchasing a cabin one must take notice what kind of windows and doors you’re getting.

Most manufacturers will show you a picture of a window or door, which normally is an upgraded window, which you can purchase if you pay more money, because if they showed you their standard windows you would run a mile!

There are lots of tricks on the internet to get you fooled into thinking your getting X when you really are getting Y, and if you see a quality window or door on a website, your mind believes this is really what you are purchasing.

Too many companies put upgrades on the homepage into tricking you into thinking this is a standard window or door set with their ranges.


Log Cabin Man Caves normally have a quite few electrical devices installed, and this causes heat, so ventilation is needed.

Sadly, if you have a cheap set of windows and doors in your cabin, the heat also escapes through these, and that’s when mould takes hold and your windows and doors rot away quickly. Plus they look awful.

So what do you do?

Quite simple actually, don’t buy a cheap nasty bulk log cabin, look for something with a Residential Window and Door set that is Trada certified and is manufactured using glulam joinery timber, which are water tight, and fit for purpose.

Moreover, you want to purchase a door with an insulated plate and not that’s fitted with planks of 19mm T&G.

You may be thinking these are going to cost a lot, well your wrong. Log Cabins LV has a range of buildings that are superbly better than anything else on the web and are competitively priced.

Please have a look at our New Deluxe Standard range of Log Cabins.

All our Log Cabins are available in many different sizes,  and thicknesses bespoke sizes welcomed  also.
